Limited Contact Plates
LCP plates are used in the same manner as the DCP, but have grooves (undercuts) on the underside of the plate.
These undercuts allow for easier bending of the plate between the screw holes when contouring. They also decrease the
chance of plate failure because forces are more evenly distributed throughout the plate.
In addition, they help to reduce plate to bone contact area thus aiding the prevention of vascular trauma.
Unlike the standard DCP screw slot uni-directional movement, the LC-DCPs are designed to compress in
By design, the screw holes have an oblique undercut for improved range of inclination.
