Butterfly 8 Plate
Butterfly 8 Plate system is a plate-screw combination which is used to correct angular deformities in pediatric cases, which are formed in the long limb and leg bones. Butterfly 8 Plate system is designed for the perfect matching of the bone surfaces by articulating plates tip.
Disorders used specifically;
Adolescent and infant periods;
Knee deformities (genu varum and genuvalgum deformations).
Femur, tibia and humerus, varus and valgus cases.
Flexion and extension deformities of the knee and wrist.
Plate screw system that can be applied varus-valgus or knee deformities in the ankle.
Butterfly 8 Plate system is applied to both sides of the epiphyseal line. By this application the axial growth is controlled and the angular deformity is corrected.
One with 13 and 16 mm depending on the distance between the screw holes.
Two with 2 and 4 holes according to the plate hole numbers.
With a strong screw design, the screw system is applied with definite and simple surgical technique. It provides an easy adaptation to different bone morphology.
The most important difference between the classic eight plate system and the new Butterfly 8 Plate system is, the hinged structured system ensures perfect placement with the bone surface and it is ideally positioned on the growth plate.
