Modular / Compact Hand Set

The Compact Hand Set 2.0 and 2.4 is designed for distal radius, subcapital radial head, phalangeal, metacarpal and metatarsal (II-V) fractures as well as osteotomies and arthodesis in dthe hand. All plates are now available as Locing Compression Plates (LCP) with the following advantages: minor primary and secondary loss of reduction, reduced screw pull-out, less periosteal compression, better hold in osteoporotic bone, more stable fication and bridging of fragments.

All plates and screws an be obtained either in titanium or stailness steel.

LCP Plate 2.0 and 2.4, straight, 48 holes, TiCP

These plates correspond to the respective former LC-DC plates, thus are intended for the same indications, including the new features of the combi-hole/locked screws.

LCP Plate 2.7, straight, 412 holes, TiCP

Particularly for metatarsal shaft fractures and correcting osteotomies of the first ray.

LCP Condylar Plate 2.0 and 2.4, 7-Holes, TiCP

These are new designs with respective modifications of the condylar plates. Here, the new geometry eliminates the need for separate left and right plates and also introduces the Locked Condylar Screw (instead of the fixed condylar blade) into the 2.0 mm system.

LCP T-Adaption Plate 2.0 and 2.4, 7 holes, TiCP

This plate has been developed for comminuted articular and metaphyseal fractures of metacarpals and some of the proximal phalangeal base fractures.

LCP Y-Adaption Plate 2.0 and 2.4, 7 holes, TiCP

This plate has been developed for comminuted articular and metaphyseal fractures of metacarpals and some of the proximal phalangeal base fractures.

LCP T-Plate 2.4, extralong

This plate is indicated in Colless fractures with extension into the shaft.

The plate will be available in three lengths: with 8, 10 or 12 holes in the shaft. It is anatomically pre-bent for application on the volar side of the distal radius.

The shaft area features combination holes, two of which are elongated to allow longitudinal adjustment of the plate. The dimension of the screw holes is 2.4 mm. However, in the shaft, the DC-part of the combination hole allows for a 2.7 mm cortical screw. A specially designed 2.7 mm Locking Screw with a 2.4 mm head can also be used in the shaft.

The plate will be available in titanium and stainless steel.

LCP L-Plate, oblique, 2.7, right and left versions, 3 & 4 holes, TiCP
For fracture and fusion fixation, especially the proximal part of the fifth ray.

Buttress Pin, 1.8, head LCP 2.4, lengths 1230 mm, TAN

Smooth pins can also be used and locked to the plate as an alternative to a locked or condylar screw.

LCP Locking Screw 2.7 (head 2.4)

The LCP Locking Screw has a 2.7 mm diameter but a 2.4 mm head, which makes it stronger than the 2.4 mm Locking Screw. This feature is important in this application, as the plate has a bridging function and needs stable screw insertion.

The screws are self-tapping and available in lengths from 660 mm. They are available in titanium alloy (TAN) and stainless steel.

Bending Pin for LCP Plates 2.0 and 2.4 mm

A Bending Pin has to be used to contour the plate.

Drill Bit, with measuring scale, for Mini Quick Coupling, 2-flut, SS

The Drill Bit incorporates a measuring scale for easy determination of the screw lengths.

Screwdriver Shaft Stardrive 2.4, short and long

A Screwdriver Shaft for the Stardrive Screwdriver is offered in a short and long version.

LCP Drill Sleeve 2.0, with Scale

A scale on the Drill Sleeve allows length measurement.

LCP Drill Sleeve 2.4

For the new LCP Locking Screws 2.7 (head 2.4), a special Drill Sleeve for Drill Bits with 2.0 mm diameter has been developed.
