2.7mm VA LCP® Clavicle Plate System

The 2.7 mm VA LCP® Clavicle Plates are designed based on an analysis of more than 600 clavicle CT scans to enhance plate-to-bone fit on a broad range of patients.1 The plates are designed to treat lateral, shaft and medial fractures for small, medium, and large clavicles based on correlation between patient stature and clavicle size.8

2.7mm VA LCP® Clavicle Plate System

Features & Benefits

Designed to go unnoticed*2

The result of extensive research, the system addresses anatomic variability of the clavicle*3-5

Mapping clavicle variation, advancing anatomical fit1,3-5

  • Design based on analysis of >600 clavicle CT scans1
  • Thinner plate profile**
  • Greater plate-to-bone conformity**
2.7 mm VA LCP® Clavicle Plate designed to go unnoticed on a patient

Reduced construct prominence, comparable strength***3-6

  • Higher construct static strength compared to DePuy Synthes 3.5mm LCP® Superior Clavicle System
  • Equivalent construct fatigue strength compared to DePuy Synthes 3.5mm LCP Superior Clavicle System
  • Every screw hole accepts 2.7 mm VA locking screws and low-profile metaphyseal screws that sit flush with the plate for low construct prominece1
  • VA technology gives surgeons the flexibility to position screws based on patient anatomy and fracture location, not plate design1
  • Staggered screw hole positioning increases screw density compared to a plate of the same length with in-line screw holes*7

Simplified plate selection based on correlation between patient height and clavicle size****8

  • Smaller clavicle has a more acute bow and curve than larger clavicle 
  • Plates designed for small, medium, and large stature patients
