Combing strength with a low profile

The A.L.P.S. Fibula Plating System aims to make it ideal for simple or complex fibula fracture procedures that involve minimal tissue coverage. The low-profile titanium plate metallurgy and multiplanar locking screw technology enable the formation of the three-dimensional matrix of fixed and variable angle screws to create a true subchondral scaffold that can provide strong fixation in comminuted fractures or osteoporotic bone.

Benefits

Unique plate design

  • The low profile, anatomic plate mimics anatomy is designed to make it ideal for simple or complex fibula fracture procedures that involve minimal tissue coverage. Composite plate combines the benefits of a locking compression plate with flexible plating technology.

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. Fibula plates feature Type 2 Anodized Titanium Alloy low profile, anatomically contoured implants. In distal fibula surgery where soft tissue coverage is at risk, these low profile plates are designed to minimize discomfort and soft tissue irritation matching the anatomy of the distal fibula, while still having the required strength.
