Pediatric Hip Plates
The LC Pediatric Hip Plates are designed for stable fixation of varus, valgus or rotational osteotomies and trauma applications in pediatric orthopaedics and is designed to meet the specific requirements of pediatric orthopaedic surgery.The LC Pediatric Hip Plates offer a wide range of locking compression plates along with a surgical technique specifically developed for the pediatric patient.The LC Pediatric Hip Plates have a universal design for the left and right femur. The head of the plate features threaded holes for locking screws that either angle into the femoral neck or angle parallel to the growth plate in the distal femur in place of the traditional angled blade. In the proximal femur plates, an additional, diverging calcar screw ensures increased fixation in the bone. The 100˚, 110˚ and 120˚ plates aredesigned with an offset for osteotomies.
The LC Pediatric Hip Plate system is indicated for fixation of fractures (including pathologic and impending pathologic fractures) and osteotomies of the femur in infants, children, adolescents and small statured adults.Specific indications for the 100°, 110°, 120°, 150° plates include: Varus, valgus, rotational and /or shortening osteotomies. Femoral neck and/or pertrochanteric fractures. Proximal metaphyseal fractures. Diaphyseal fractures. Pathologic fractures. Prophylactic use for impending pathologic fracture.
