DVR® Plating System
- Anatomic Design
Provides a low-profile, anatomically designed implant that mimics the bone and serves as a template to aid in reduction. The plate is contoured with respect to the watershed line to enhance buttressing and load transfer.
- F.A.S.T. Guide® Technology
F.A.S.T. Guide Technology is designed to simplify and speed up surgery allowing easy drilling of fixed angle locking screws.
- Variable Screw Options
Locking, non-locking and multi-directional screw options are available to provide optimal fit for the fracture type. For efficiency, all screw holes accept the 2.7mm screws, requiring a single drill bit and driver. Pegs and locked screws have tapered heads and triple-lead threads to create a stiff construct designed to facilitate easy insertion and removal. Cross-locking oblique screw options are designed to provide three-dimensional fixation in the commuted fractures and osteoporotic bone.
All locking, non-locking and oblong holes accept the 2.7mm screws, requiring a single drill bit and driver. This allows surgeons and OR staff to streamline workflow, minimising the need to interchange instruments during the procedure. Additionally, the system indicates side-specific implants by colour-coding creating an efficient and easy-to-use system.
- Optimal Fixation
A narrow shaft is designed to make it easy to fit the plate to bone without compromising fixation options. Cross-locking oblique screw options are designed to provide three-dimensional fixation in commuted fractures and osteoporotic bone. Pegs and locking screws have tapered heads and triple-lead threads to create a stiff construct and enhance insertion and removal characteristics.
- Intra-Operative Flexibility
Cobalt-chrome multi-directional pegs and fixed-angle K-wire holes aid the surgeon with optimised plate positioning and provide the flexibility to adjust peg trajectories while still creating a strong, stable construct.
