- Distal Medial Tibia Locking Plate
DetailsThe LCP Medial Distal Tibia Plate without Tab is part of the LCP Small Fragment System that merges locking screw technology with conventional plating techniques. The combi-holes in the LCP limited-contact plate shaft combine a dynamic compression unit (DCU) hole with a locking screw hole. Combi-holes provide the flexibility of axial compression and locking capability throughout the length of the plate shaft. The head of the plate features six locking holes and two combi-holes that accept Locking Screws B 3.5 mm. The two combi-holes also accept Cortex Screws B 3.5 mm and Cancellous Bone Screws B 4.0 mm; the screw heads in these holes are recessed to minimize screw prominence. Fixation with the LCP Medial Distal Tibia Plate without Tab has many similarities to traditional plate fixation methods, with a few important improvements. Locking screws provide the ability to create a fixed-angle construct while using standard plating techniques. Locking capability is important for fixed angle constructs in osteopenic bone or multi fragment fractures where screw purchase is compromised. These screws do not rely on plate-to bone compression to resist patient load, but function similarly to multiple small angled blade plates.
