The 3.5 mm LPS Proximal Tibia Plates have a limited-contact profile. The head and neck portions of the plates accept 3.5 mm HEX Drive locking screws. The screw hole pattern allows a raft of subchondral locking screws to buttress and maintain reduction of the articular surface. This provides resistance to local depression loads in addition to the stability of the fixed angle construct created by locking the screws into the plate.
The Meril's 3.5 mm LPS Proximal Tibia Plate - Low Bend is part of the locking plate system (LPS), which merges locking screw technology with conventional plating techniques. The locking plate system(LPS) here has Combi-holes in the plate shaft. The Combi-hole provides flexibility of axial compression and locking capability throughout the length of the plate shaft
Meril's 3.5 mm LPS Proximal Tibia Plate - Low Bend are indicated for fractures of the proximal tibia, including: simple, comminuted, lateral wedge, depression, medial wedge, bicondylar combination of lateral wedge and depression, periprosthetic, and fractures with associated shaft fractures.
The plates can also be used for treatment of nonunions, malunions, and osteopenic bone.
Tapered tip for submuscular insertion.
Distal locking screws provide support for the articular surface.
The head of the plate is designed to provide a low-profile construct when using locking screws.
Distal and proximal K-wire hole supports the positioning of the plate.
Precontoured to fit the anatomy of the lateral proximal tibia, eliminating the need for intraoperative contouring and minimizing soft tissue irritation.
Long shaft to support and deflect forces in the diaphysis.
Plates have tapered ends allowing minimally invasive plate insertion.
Option to insert the plate subcutaneously for minimally invasive surgery.
