LCP Radial Head Plates 2.4
The LCP Radial Head Plates 2.4 are indicated for extraarticular and intraarticular fractures of the proximal radius and multifragmented radial neck fractures. The Radial Head Plates have a limited contact low profile, a narrow width to stay in the safe zone, and are precontoured for better anatomical fit. They will be available in three lengths with 2, 3, or 4 LCP combination holes in the shaft for 2.4 mm locking head screws. Alternately, 2.4 mm and 2.7 mm cortex screws can be used. The proximal part of the plate with 5 round locking holes allows the setting of a maximum number of locking head screws. The position and the screw angle are anatomically adapted and enable the optimum setting of fractures. The shaft features one elongated sliding hole for optimal positioning of plate.
There will be two plates available in the set: LCP Radial Head Neck Plate 2.4 and a LCP Radial Head Rim Plate 2.4.
Both plates are 1.8 mm thick and tapered to 0.75 mm thickness. They are available in stainless steel and titanium. All plates are fully compatible with the LCP Distal Radius 2.4 set.
The Radial Head Neck Plate 2.4 sits more distal than the Rim Plate on the radial head. It fits both radius. All the proximal screws are angled toward the far cortex of the radial head and screws also diverge axially. This also provides a buttressing support to the articular surface.
The Radial Head Rim Plate 2.4 will be available in both left and right and has a 5 tilt to match the radial head. The plate offers divergent screw angles axially providing a buttress for the radial head.
