Plates fixate fractures of short bones or long (tub) bones, they are for corrections and bone stabilisation. Fixation of the plate on the bone is performed with the help of bone screws.
Fixation plates are plates with circle holes for bone fixation on both sides of fracture firm up with help of screws. Screw head is partly hidden in the plate. On both sides of the plate there are holes for spongious screws, other holes for cortical screws. Eccentric screw placing at wider plate can reach partial axial compression.
Screws for fixation plates:
cortical screws HA 4.5
cancellous screws HB 6.5
Bone plates are made of implant steel.
