3.5 mm LCP Distal Tibia T-Plate
3.5 mm LCP Distal Tibia T-Plates are part of the DePuy Synthes locking compression plate (LCP) system. The 3.5 mm LCP Distal Tibia T-Plates are part of the DePuy Synthes LCP System that merges locking screw technology with conventional plating techniques. The plates are available in stainless steel and long plates feature a limited-contact shaft profile. The Combi holes allow fixation with locking screws in the threaded section for angular stability, and cortex screws in the dynamic compression unit (DCU) section for compression. The fixed-angle construct provides advantages for small distal metadiaphyseal segments where traditional screw fixation may be limited. This design provides angular stability similar to a blade plate while maintaining ease of insertion. The 3.5 mm LCP Distal Tibia T-Plate construct features four locking, rafting screws parallel to the joint surface along with locking, strut screw options providing additional support in the distal region of the tibia. The plate accepts 2.7 mm and 3.5 mm cortex screws, 3.5 mm locking screws and 4.0 mm cancellous bone screws.
