Surgeons requesting custom plates also tend to prefer them with the extra hole. We now also have a range of pantarsal plates with T4 slot. The slot provides flexibility over screw position and angulation enabling good engagement with the fourth tarsal bone in almost all cases. The feline pantarsal arthrodesis plate has a 120˚ angulation. Although 2.0mm screws are a better fit, 1.5mm screws can also be used distally. Our original pantarsal arthrodesis plates were derived from a series of custom implants we created for Malcolm McKee (McKee, W.M., May, C., Macias, C. & Lapish, J.P. (2004) Pancarpal Arthrodesis with a Customised Medial or Lateral Bone Plate in 13 Dogs.Veterinary Record 154, 165-170).

Lateral application is possible and may be necessary as situations dictate. For lateral application, the distal fibula will need to be managed. 2.0/2.7 Feline Pantarsal Plate with T4 Slot - 120° Right 2.0/2.7 Feline Pantarsal Plate with T4 Slot - 120° Left 1.5/2.0 Feline Pantarsal Plate with T4 Slot - 120˚ Right 1.5/2.0 Feline Pantarsal Plate with T4 Slot - 120˚ Left £118.45 £118.45 £118.45 £118.45 The original custom plates featured a round hole to engage with the fourth tarsal bone. Due to the variable position of the fourth tarsal bone, we dropped these holes from production versions having viewed them as non-essential. Plate profiles on page 370. CANINE PANTARSAL ARTHRODESIS PLATES WITH SLOT FOR T4 (MEDIAL) Plate angulation is set to match the normal standing angles of the target patient population. Occasionally we do manufacture custom/semi-custom pantarsal arthrodesis plates at other angles to meet particular patients’ needs. Please contact the office with patient details should you need to explore custom solutions. If we feel there is sufficient demand, we will often perform full production runs. 152969-T4 152968-T4 152916-T4 152915-T4 152964-T4 152965-T4 152962-T4 152963-T4 152914-T4S 152913-T4S 152914-T4 152913-T4 152960-T4 152961-T4 PANTARSAL ARTHRODESIS PLATE 152918 152917 152916 152915 152914 152913 2.0/2.7 Pantarsal Plate Right Cat 120° 2.0/2.7 Pantarsal Plate Left Cat 120° 2.0/2.7 Pantarsal Plate Right Dog 140° 2.0/2.7 Pantarsal Plate Left Dog 140° 2.7/3.5mm Pantarsal Plate Right Short. 2.7/3.5mm Pantarsal Plate Left Short £108.15 £108.15 £108.15 £108.15 £108.15 £108.15 Plate profiles on page 370. 95 1.5/2.0 Canine Pantarsal Plate with T4 Slot - 135˚ Right £118.45 1.5/2.0 Canine Pantarsal Plate with T4 Slot - 135˚ Left £118.45 2.0/2.7 Canine (Small) Pantarsal Plate with T4 Slot 140° Right £118.45 2.0/2.7 Canine (Small) Pantarsal Plate with T4 Slot 140° Left £118.45 2.0/2.7 Canine Pantarsal Plate with T4 slot – 140˚ Left £118.45 2.0/2.7 Canine Pantarsal Plate with T4 slot – 140˚ Right £118.45 2.0/2.7/3.5mm Medial Pantarsal Arthrodesis Plate Left With T4 £118.45 2.0/2.7/3.5mm Medial Pantarsal Arthrodesis Plate Right With T4 £118.45 2.7/3.5 Canine Pantarsal Plate with T4 Slot - Right Short £118.45 2.7/3.5 Canine Pantarsal Plate with T4 Slot - Left Short £118.45 2.7/3.5 Canine Pantarsal Plate with T4 Slot - Right Hand £118.45 2.7/3.5 Canine Pantarsal Plate with T4 Slot - Left Hand £118.45 2.7/3.5/4.5 Canine Pantarsal Plate with T4 Slot - Left Hand £140.00 2.7/3.5/4.5 Canine Pantarsal Plate with T4 Slot - Right Hand £140.00
