4.5mm LCP® Proximal Femur Plate

The Synthes LCP® Proximal Femur Plate is part of the LCP Periarticular Plating System, which merges locking screw technology with conventional plating techniques.  The LCP Periarticular Plating System is capable of addressing complex fractures of the proximal femur with the 4.5 mm LCP Proximal Femur Plates and Proximal Femur Hook Plates, complex fractures of the distal femur with the 4.5 mm LCP Condylar Plates, and complex fractures of the proximal tibia with the 4.5 mm LCP Proximal Tibia and LCP Medial Proximal Tibia Plates.

4.5mm LCP® Proximal Femur Plate

Features & Benefits

  • LCP PROXIMAL FEMUR PLATE

       

    • Anatomically contoured to approximate the lateral aspect of the proximal femur
    • Plates specifically designed for left or right femurs to accommodate average femoral neck anteversion
    • Plate lengths allow spanning of the entire diaphysis in segmental fracture patterns
    • Use of locking screws provides the option of an angularly stable construct independent of bone quality
    • Plates can be tensioned to create a load-sharing construct

Indication Statement

The 4.5 mm LCP Proximal Femur Plate is intended for fractures of the femur including:
• Fractures of the trochanteric region, trochanteric simple, trochanterodiaphyseal, multifragmentary pertrochanteric, intertrochanteric reversed or transverse or with additional fracture of the medial cortex
• Fractures of the proximal end of the femur combined with ipsilateral shaft fractures
• Metastatic fracture of the proximal femur
• Osteotomies of the proximal femur
• Also for use in fixation of osteopenic bone and fixation of nonunions or malunions
