Designed for an Optimal Fit with Advanced Locking Technology
Zimmer® Periarticular Locking Plate - Distal Lateral Fibula Plating System
Anatomically Contoured Locking Plates with Compression
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.

Low-profile, pre-contoured plates
One of the most difficult challenges in the treatment of periarticular fractures is bending the plate to fit the specific profile. Zimmer Biomet’s advanced periarticular plates were developed using digital laser bone-scanning technology. The data was used to guide advanced fabricating technologies in the precise manufacture of pre-contoured implants.
Zimmer’s periarticular plate designs decrease in thickness toward the joint line presenting a minimally invasive technique that is designed to help minimize soft-tissue irritation and simplifies any additional contouring. These precontoured plates help with metaphyseal/diaphyseal reduction, facilitating fixation while minimizing impinging on soft tissue. The reduced thickness also intended to allow the implant to “autocontour” as the screws draw the plate toward the bone. The tapered plate shaft design, combined with specialized instrumentation, provides for submuscular passage of the plate and fixation that utilizes a minimally invasive technique.
Optimal Screw Technology
Locking screw technology gives surgeons the ability to create a fixed-angle construct while using familiar plating techniques. Multiple screw holes are designed with optimal screw trajectories to help capture small fragments. The locking plate design does not require compression between the plate and bone to accommodate loading. Therefore, the screw purchase in the bone can be achieved with a shallow thread profile.
Universal Locking System (ULS) Holes
The plate shaft includes ULS holes, which are figure-8 shaped and will accommodate standard or locking screws on either side of the hole. As a result, the plate can be used, depending upon the fracture situation, as compression plate, a locked internal fixator or as an internal fixation system combining both techniques. The plates enable the surgeon to treat fractures using compression plating techniques with standard cortical and cancellous screws. This is designed to allow application of the implant as an internal fixator to bridge highly commuted zones while providing stable fixation, utilizing both standard and locking screws in the same construct. Additionally, the system is intended to apply bi-directional axial compression within the construct as well as the ability to utilize unicortical locking fixation as necessary.
