A plate that prevents axial deformity or deviation as a result of shearing or bending forces (central portion of plate has no screw holes to increase plate strength). They are also used to splint or bridge a fracture area to maintain the length of the bone. They can be used in conjunction with lag screws and can maintain alignment of highly comminute segments of bone (a fracture in which the bone is splintered or crushed into numerous pieces). Gaps in the bone may be present. When gaps are present, the plate with this type of fixation is subject to full loading. Therefore, every possible effort should be made to maintain soft tissue attachments and blood supply to the comminute fragments since union will depend on the formation of a callus bridge and not direct healing of the bone.

All Plates are made from Stainless Steel ISO 5832-1
