F3® Fragment Plating System

Contouring for the Most Complex Bone Surfaces

  • Fixation of Small Bone Fragments in Fresh Fractures, Revision Procedures, Joint Fusion, and Reconstruction
  • High Flex Plates Offer Three-dimensional Contouring
  • High Strength Plates Offer Two-dimensional Contouring

The F3® Fragment Plating System designed to offer strong, low profile fixation of small bone fragments in a locked plating construct that can be contoured directly to the bone. The system consists of two plate styles: high flex and high strength.

The high flex plates offer three-dimensional contouring designed to help facilitate matching of the most complex bone surfaces. Bending is possible in the axial, coronal, and sagittal planes.

The high strength plates offer two-dimensional contouring, providing increased plate stiffness over the high flex design. Bending is possible in the axial and coronal planes.

The plate can be initially fastened to the bone, and then contoured, or may be bent initially to allow for insertion into a concavity such as the neck of the metatarsals.

Consider these important design features:

  • Locking peg technology designed to provide a strong and stable construct
  • Non-locking screw options also available
  • Proprietary F.A.S.T. Guide® technology protects the locking hole threads while providing leverage for contouring and reducing O.R. time
