Low Profile, Anatomically Contoured

The A.L.P.S. Distal Tibia Plating System combines strength with a low profile, designed to make it ideal for distal tibia procedures that often involve complex fractures and minimal tissue coverage. The plate’s design allows it to sit tightly next to the distal ridge of the tibia and provide strong fixation in comminuted fractures or osteoporotic bone.

Benefits

Designed to minimize discomfort and Soft tissue irritation

  • Low profile and anatomically contoured plates mimic the distal tibia allowing it to sit tightly next to the distal ridge of the tibia.

Strong Fixation

  • The low-profile titanium plate metallurgy and multiplanar locking screw technology enable the formation of a three-dimensional matrix of fixed and variable angle screws to create a true subchondral scaffold that is intended to provide strong fixation in communted fractures or osteoporotic bone.

Stability

  • The system allows the use of locking, multi-directional, and standard screws. This hybrid fixation concept is designed to allow the surgeon to stabilize the fracture either by the use of lag screw techniques through the plate, or by compression plating techniques. Locking screws serve to provide stability to comminuted, unstable metaphyseal fractures or in osteopenic bone.

Education

Literature

Surgical Approach The A.L.P.S. Distal Tibia Plating System approaches include an antero-medial incision, a standard anterior incision, or the lateral Bohler approach. When plating the fibula through a standard lateral approach, the surgeon should identify the tibial incision first to avoid narrow skin bridges between the two incisions
