3.5mm LCP® Medial Distal Tibia Plate, without tab

The 3.5 mm LCP® Medial Distal Tibia Plate, without tab is part of the DePuy Synthes LCP System that merges locking screw technology with conventional plating techniques.

Fixation with the 3.5 mm 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 AO plating techniques. Locking capability is important for fixed-angle constructs in osteopenic bone or multifragment 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.

Features & Benefits

  • Plate features

    • Head of plate is low profile for reduced prominence on medial malleolus
    • 3.5 mm cortex and 4.0 mm cancellous bone screws sit flush with plate in the nonlocking portion of distal Combi holes
    • Four to fourteen Combi holes in the shaft
    • Distal K-wire hole for plate placement (2.0 mm maximum diameter)
    • Articulated tension device (ATD) hole for compression or distraction
    • Rounded edges to reduce soft tissue irritation
    • Available in stainless steel or titanium
    • Three distal locking screws diverge across subchondral bone and are parallel to joint Combi holes in the shaft and head accept the following:
    • 3.5 mm cortex screws
    • 3.5 mm locking screws
    • 4.0 mm cancellous bone screws
  • Round locking holes in the head accept the following:

    • 2.7 mm cortex screws
    • 3.5 mm locking screws
    • 3.5 mm cortex screws
    • 4.0 mm cancellous bone screws
