For Ankle fusion - Para la fusión del tobillo
Ankle Fusion Locking Plate is a trauma implant used in ankle fusion surgery, also known as arthrodesis. Ankle fusion is a surgical procedure where the bones of the ankle joint are permanently joined together to eliminate joint motion. This procedure is typically recommended for patients with severe ankle arthritis, deformities, or failed previous ankle surgeries.
Here's information of Ankle Fusion Locking Plate:
Purpose: The Ankle Fusion Locking Plate is used to stabilize the ankle joint during the fusion process. It provides rigid fixation to the bones, allowing them to heal and fuse into a single, solid bone.
Design: The locking plate is made of titanium, which is biocompatible materials commonly used in orthopedic implants. The plate has multiple screw holes, and the screws used with the plate have a special design that allows them to lock into the plate, providing enhanced stability.
Anatomical Fit: The locking plate is designed to anatomically fit the contours of the ankle joint, allowing for precise placement and fixation of the bones during surgery.
Locking Screw Technology: Locking screws have threads that engage with the plate, creating a fixed-angle construct that offers increased stability compared to traditional screws. This technology helps prevent screw loosening and promotes a more solid fusion.
Post-operative Care: After ankle fusion surgery with a locking plate, patients typically need to use a cast or a brace to protect the ankle while it heals. Physical therapy is also an essential part of the recovery process to regain strength and function in the lower limb.
