TRUE LOCK Tibia Straight Plate
TRUE LOCK Tibia Straight Plates are
indicated fractures and deformities in the shaft (middle, diaphyseal) part of the tibia bone.
Tibia shaft fractures have taken the forefront of long bone fractures, which are the most common today with the advancement of technology and the increase in the number of people involved in sports activities. It accounts for about 15% of all
hole option between 6-15
TRUE LOCK Tibia Straight Plate are
of Ti6Al4V ELI material (ASTM F136)
Improved vascularization of the periost due to plate undercuts that reduce the plate-to-bone contact.
Feasability of plate contouring due to thinned plate profile.
The combi-hole provides flexibility of axial compression and locking capability throughout the length of the plate shaft.
Kirschner wire holes accept Kirschner wires (up to 2.0 mm) to temporarily fix the plate to the tibia , to temporarily reduce articular fragments, and to confirm the location of the plate, relative to the tibia.
Locking the screw into the plate does not generate additional compression. Therefore, the periosteum will be protected and the blood supply to the bone preserved.
Low plate-and-screw profile and rounded plate edges minimize potential for tendon and soft tissue irritation .
