Distal anterior tibial locking plate - Placa de bloqueo para tibia distal anterior
The Distal Anterior Tibial locking plate is designed specifically for fractures in the distal part of the tibia (lower part of the shinbone) near the ankle joint. Fractures in this area, also known as pilon fractures, can be complex and challenging to treat due to their proximity to the joint.
Key features and characteristics:
Anatomical Contour: The plate is pre-contoured to match the shape of the distal tibia, allowing for a better fit and improved alignment of the bone fragments during the healing process.
Locking Screw Technology: The plate has holes that accommodate locking screws, providing enhanced stability and resistance to angular forces. This can be especially beneficial in cases where traditional screws may not provide adequate fixation.
Combination Holes: The plate may have a combination of locking and compression holes. Locking screws offer strong stability, while compression screws promote bone healing by compressing the fractured bone fragments together.
Low-Profile Design: The plate is often designed to have a low profile, reducing the risk of soft tissue irritation and promoting better patient comfort.
