15Internal 3 Dental Equipment Fixation & Instrumentation www.vetinst.com Canine Pantarsal Plate with T-4 Slot - Titanium Titanium is far more biocompatible then stainless steel. It is also more resistant to infection, so these plates would be the plate of choice if there is any infection or potential infection at the arthrodesis site.

Alternative solutions are often less than ideal and include complicated external fixation frames, elective limb shortening to use standard implants or double plating. Our hindlimb salvage project aims to develop a range of stock implants to provide more eloquent and functional solutions for these patients. If you cannot find the plate that you need here, please contact our office as this is an active area of development and we may already have something suitable in stock and ready for dispatch or something that can be modified to work for you.
