2.7mm Lateral Distal-Fibula-System

for the lateral fixation of fractures (Weber A, B and C), osteotomies and nonunions of the distal fibula.

Surgical Technique Guide Clinical Case 1
The shape and the profile of the plate are adapted to the anatomy of the fibula and facilitate an optimal positioning on the bone.

The spoon-like design of the plate allows for the reconstruction of distal fibula fragments.
The polyaxial locking head screws enable multidirectional insertion at an angle up to 15° (off-axis screw angulation) in all directions and therefore provide the necessary intraoperative flexibility to individually consider particular fracture patterns.

The spike on the distal head of the plate facilitates the positioning and prevents plate slippage on the bone.
The distal placement of up to seven angular stable screws provides a stable support of the fracture. With stable syndesmotic ligaments a rapid, loaded mobilization is supported.

Rounded edges, the slim plate profile, the smooth coated surface as well as screws that sit flush on the plate reduce the risk of irritation of the surrounding soft tissue.

Dedicated Kirschner wire holes in the plate allow for temporary Kirschner wire fixation to facilitate the positioning of the plate on the bone.
The special surface coating of the plates and screws (Type II anodization) favours a simplified removal of the implants after fracture healing.

The T7 screw drive ensures optimal force transmission, reduces the risk of deformation of the screw drive and allows for self-retention of the screw on the screwdriver.
