Providing optimal plate conformity and subchondral support  

The A.L.P.S. Proximal Tibia plates represent the next generation in anatomic locked plating of tibial plateau fractures. It combines the benefits of low profile titanium plate metallurgy with the advantages of double row, multi-planar locked subchondral screw technology. These features allow the formation of a three-dimensional matrix of fixed and variable angle screws beneath the articular surface to create a true subchondral scaffold that is designed to provide strong fixation in both comminuted fractures and osteopenic bone.

Optimum Plate Conformity 

  • The A.L.P.S. Proximal Tibia Plates are specifically designed to match the anatomy of the proximal tibia while still having the required strength. This is achieved by offering two distinct lateral proximal tibia plate shapes. The distinction lies with the shape of the slope between the head and the shaft of the plate at the metaphyseal flare. These two plates are categorized as the standard and large curve plates both available in 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13 and 15 hole plates.  

Strength and Support

  • Diverging raft row screws and dual kickstand screws offer optimum subchondral support. Dual Raft rows allow sequential stabilization among multiple planes engineered from TiMAX® for strength, biocompatibility and enhanced imaging capabilities over stainless steel.

System Features

The A.L.P.S. Proximal Tibia Plating System is composed of anatomically-contoured plates that are intended to provide plate conformity and subchondral support, and are low-profile to minimize soft tissue irritation. This plate features a unique, double row of proximal screws designed to accommodate 4.0 mm and 3.5 mm locking and non-locking screws. This allows sequential stabilization in multiple planes.
