15Internal 3 Dental Equipment Fixation & Instrumentation Locking T-Plates www.vetinst.com VI low profile 2.0mm locking T-plates do not have the stacked locking feature of our larger locking implants and should only be used with locking screws. Locking constructs offer inherently better angular stability than nonlocking constructs. This can be useful when managing small fragments where only a low screw count is possible, such as with distal radial fractures, and corrective osteotomies or wedge ostectomies positioned towards the end of a bone. Limited contact undercuts reduce the impact of these plates on underlying periosteal blood supply and reduce stress concentration at the screw-holes. The additional reduction hole at the proximal end of these plates will accept A-wires up to 1.2mm in diameter.

This can help save significant time in theatre. 090021 1.1mm Arthrodesis Wire Pack of 10 125mm Long Stepping the plate off from the bone surface or positioning it at a slight angle to the bone surface can be used to good advantage when correcting angular limb deformities; the cortices do not re-align into an undesired position as screws are tightened. See page 112 for 2.0mm Star Drive Locking Screws £24.21 2.4/ 2.7mm Locking T-Plates Not to scale Locking screws fully seated into VI locking T-plates sit completely flat, minimising interference with over-lying tissues. VI 2.4mm and 2.7mm Locking Screws have the same size head, so these plates will accept either. Where necessary , the shallow stacked locking feature will also support the use of standard cortical or cortical self-tapping screws. Limited contact undercuts reduce the impact of these plates on underlying periosteal blood supply and reduce stress concentration at the screw-holes. The additional reduction hole at the proximal end of these plates will accept A-wires up to 1.5mm in diameter. All of our locking T-plates feature a small hole between the proximal screw holes. This permits the engagement of positional aids such as an A-wire or the tips of pointy reduction forceps. 2.0mm Locking T-Plates Not to scale T2427748LOCK is similar to T2427647LOCK featured above, but has three locking screw holes in the head section and four locking screw holes in the shaft. 2.4/ 2.7MM LOCKING T-PLATES T2427537LOCK T2427647LOCK T2427755LOCK T2427748LOCK LSDG2424 2.4/ 2.7mm Locking T-Plate 5 Holes 37mm Long 2.4/ 2.7mm Locking T-Plate 6 Holes 47mm Long 2.4/ 2.7mm Locking T-Plate 7 Holes 55mm Long 2.4/ 2.7mm Locking T-Plate 3 Head 4 Shaft 48mm 2.4mm Locking Screw Drill Guide £65.00 £70.00 £75.00 £75.00 £54.08 LSDG2724 2.7mm Locking Screw Drill Guide £54.08 SDT82427 QRCS01F Star Drive Insert for 2.4/ 2.7mm Locking Screws Quick Release Handle 090061 1.25mm Arthrodesis Wire Pack of 10 125mm Long See page 111 for 2.4mm & 2.7mm Star Drive Locking Screws.
