Hybrid plating technology for compression and locked fixation

The A.L.P.S. ® Small Fragment System combines a traditional plating system with the benefits of locking screw technology. The hybrid construction of this plate is designed to offer the ability to combine standard interfragmentary compression with the added stability of fixed angle locking. This construct is intended to protect the compression and lag screws while providing stability across extensive comminution, unstable metaphyseal fractures or in osteopenic bone.

Benefits

Systematic Efficiency

  • The versatility of the instrument trays allows for the entire system to be housed in one large base or split into a separate instrument and implant base. The trays contain three-dimensional graphics for rapid implant and instrument identification, enhancing both surgical and processing efficiencies.

Maximize Treatment Options

  • The small fragment system is a titanium plate and screw system that fuses locking screw technology with conventional plating techniques. The set was designed to maximize treatment options managing fractures requiring small fragment fixation, as well as, serve as the core system for additional anatomic implants. This reflects numerous functional requirements of our customers and presents the opportunity to reduce procedural costs.
