Combing strength with a low profile

The A.L.P.S. Fibula Plating System aims to make it ideal for simple or complex fibula fracture procedures that involve minimal tissue coverage. The low-profile titanium plate metallurgy and multiplanar locking screw technology enable the formation of the three-dimensional matrix of fixed and variable angle screws to create a true subchondral scaffold that can provide strong fixation in comminuted fractures or osteoporotic bone.

Unique plate design

  • The low profile, anatomic plate mimics anatomy is designed to make it ideal for simple or complex fibula fracture procedures that involve minimal tissue coverage. Composite plate combines the benefits of a locking compression plate with flexible plating technology.

Stability

  • The system allows the use of locking, multi-directional, and standard screws. This hybrid fixation concept is designed to allow the surgeon to stabilize the fracture either by the use of lag screw techniques through the plate, or by compression plating techniques. Locking screws serve to provide stability to comminuted, unstable metaphyseal fractures or in osteopenic bone.

Features

The A.L.P.S. Fibula Plating System represents the next generation in anatomic plate design. The anatomic locking plate is designed to mimic the anatomy of the distal fibula, while the composite locking plate combines the benefits of a small fragment plate with flexible plating technology. These features give surgeons the distinct capability to achieve anatomically contoured shapes, such as the distal fibula, to treat even the most challenging cases.

Resources

Education

Surgical Approach The A.L.P.S. Distal Tibia Plating System approaches include an antero-medial incision, a standard anterior incision, or the lateral Bohler approach. When plating the fibula through a standard lateral approach, the surgeon should identify the tibial incision first to avoid narrow skin bridges between the two incision
