Based on 7 & 8 hole Mono-Axial locking plates, this useful new design is intended for mid-distal antebrachial fractures suited to a straight plate. They are indicated for application to the radius to treat fractures with the following features:
poor blood supply (e.g. toy breeds)
Extra plate strength – no empty Screw holes over your fracture line.
Versatile lengths – 1 or 2 hole spacing to suit the fracture.
Less extensor restriction – very useful around the distal antebrachium.
Increased simplicity – increased plate strength reduces the need for orthogonal plating of the ulna.
Extensive size range – 2.0mm, 2.4mm, 2.7mm & 3.5mm locking.
Cost effective – benefits of locking fixation without the extra cost of Poly-Axial Screw holes where not needed.
Conical shaped threaded holes – suit locking Screws or cortical Screws allowing bone to conform to the plate if
Reduced inventory – no need for locking plugs.
