Periarticular Locking Plate System

Designed for an Optimal Fit with Advanced Locking Technology

  • Anatomically Contoured Stainless Steel Plates
  • Available in a Variety of Lengths in Both Left and Right Configurations
  • Locking Plates with Compression Capabilities

The Periarticular Locking Plate System aims to combine optimal fit with advanced locking technology to offer a system for the treatment of comminuted fractures or fractures where deficient bone stock or poor bone quality is a factor. A combination of locking screw holes and compression slots allows the plates to be used as locking devices while applying fracture compression.

Periarticular plates are anatomically precontoured to closely match the shape of the medial or lateral aspect of the distal tibia, as well as the distal fibula designed to provide a precise fit with little or no additional bending. The design features a transitional profile that is thicker in the diaphyseal area and thinner in the metaphyseal area aiming to reduce the potential for soft tissue irritation. The thinner profile near the joint line also allows the plate to “autocontour” as the plate is tightened against the bone surface.

Consider these important design features:

  • Precontoured plates
  • Tapered plate shaft design allows submuscular passage of the plate
  • Locking screw holes accept either conical or locking screws
  • Multiple screw holes with optimal screw trajectories to help capture small fragments
  • Shallow thread profile allows for screws with a large core diameter to accommodate loading
