4.5 mm LCP® Proximal Femur Hook Plate

Features & Benefits

  •    

    • Two proximal hooks engage the superior tip of the greater trochanter
    • Anatomically contoured to approximate the lateral aspect of the proximal femur
    • Use of locking screws provides an angularly stable construct independent of bone quality
    • Accepts the Articulated Tension Device to tension the plate and create a load-sharing construct
    • Manufactured of implant quality 316L stainless steel
  •    

    • The most proximal screw hole accepts a 7.3 mm cannulated locking or cannulated conical screw, oriented at 95 degrees to the plate shaft
    • The second proximal screw hole accepts a 5.0 mm locking screw oriented at 110 degrees to the plate shaft
    • The Combi holes in the plate shaft accept 4.0 mm or 5.0 mm locking screws in the threaded portion or 4.5 mm cortex screws in the DCU portion 
    • Limited-contact stainless steel plate
