Distal tibial Pilon locking plate - Placa en Cruz de bloqueo para tibia distal
The Distal tibial Pilon locking plate is specifically designed for the treatment of complex fractures of the distal tibia (pilon fractures). These fractures occur at the bottom of the shinbone (tibia) and can be challenging to manage due to the involvement of the ankle joint.
The Distal tibial Pilon Locking Plates are part of the Locking Compression Plate (LCP) system, which combines the benefits of traditional compression plates with locking screws. The plates are made of stainless steel or titanium and have a low-profile design to reduce soft tissue irritation.
Key features and benefits:
Anatomical Design: The plates are anatomically contoured to match the shape of the distal tibia, providing a better fit and stability.
Locking Screw Technology: The plates have multiple holes for locking screws, which offer excellent resistance to angular stability. This feature helps in maintaining the alignment of the fracture fragments during the healing process.
Combination Holes: The plates often have a combination of locking and compression holes. Locking screws can be used when more stability is needed, while compression screws can be used to promote fracture healing by compressing the bone fragments together.
Multiple Plate Options: Different plate sizes and configurations are available to accommodate variations in patient anatomy and fracture patterns.
