The Distal Medial Tibial Locking Plate from CZMEDITECH, offers the advantages of locked plating with the flexibility and benefits of traditional plating in one system. Utilizing both locking and non-locking screws, the PERI-LOC System offers a construct that resists angular (e.g. varus/valgus) collapse while simultaneously
acting as an effective aid to fracture reduction. A simple and straightforward instrument set features one screwdriver, standardized drill bits, and color-coded instrumentation, thus making the Distal Medial Tibial Locking Plate efficient and easy to use.
The Distal Medial Tibial Locking Plate Targeter provides a less invasive surgical approach with locking screw options. By aligning directly with the plate's screw hole configuration, the Targeter optimizes the screw placement percutaneously. All CZMEDITECH implants are manufactured using the highest quality 316L stainless steel for strength and durability.
The precontour of the 3.5mm Medial Distal Tibia Locking Plate provides an excellent fit against the surface of the bone.
Each screw hole will accept one of four different screws allowing you to customize the screw configuration depending on the individual needs of the fracture:
• 3.5mm Locking Self-Tapping Cortex Screw
• 3.5mm Self-Tapping Cortex Screw (Non-Locking)
The PERI-LOC Periarticular Locked Plating System can be used in adult and pediatric patients as well as patients with osteopenic bone. It is indicated for fixation of pelvic, small and long bone fractures, including those of the tibia, fibula, femur, pelvis, acetabulum, metacarpals, metatarsals, humerus, ulna, calcaneus and clavicle.

The distal medial tibial locking plate is a surgical implant used to treat complex fractures of the distal tibia. This plate provides stability and support to the fractured bone, allowing it to heal properly. In this article, we'll discuss the features, benefits, and risks associated with the distal medial tibial locking plate.
The distal medial tibial locking plate is a type of internal fixation device used in orthopedic surgery. It is designed to be surgically implanted along the medial surface of the tibia, and its locking screws secure it to the bone. The plate is made of titanium or stainless steel and has a low profile, which means that it does not protrude significantly from the bone's surface.
The distal medial tibial locking plate has several features that make it an excellent choice for treating complex distal tibial fractures. These features include:
The locking screws used with the distal medial tibial locking plate are designed to provide superior stability and fixation. These screws thread into the plate, which then locks onto the bone, creating a solid fixation. The locking screws are also designed to minimize the risk of screw loosening or back out.
The distal medial tibial locking plate has a low profile, which means that it does not significantly protrude from the bone's surface. This feature reduces the risk of soft tissue irritation and promotes faster healing times.
The distal medial tibial locking plate has an anatomic design that closely matches the shape of the medial surface of the tibia. This feature provides a better fit, improving the stability of the plate and reducing the risk of implant failure.
The use of the distal medial tibial locking plate offers several benefits, including:
The distal medial tibial locking plate provides improved stability compared to other treatment options. This increased stability helps the bone to heal properly, reducing the risk of complications and improving overall patient outcomes.
The locking screws used with the distal medial tibial locking plate create a solid fixation, reducing the risk of implant failure. This reduces the need for repeat surgeries and improves patient outcomes.
The anatomic design and low profile of the distal medial tibial locking plate promote faster healing times. This means that patients can return to their normal activities sooner and with less discomfort.
While the distal medial tibial locking plate offers many benefits, there are also risks associated with its use. These risks include:
As with any surgical procedure, there is a risk of infection with the use of the distal medial tibial locking plate. Patients will be given antibiotics before and after surgery to reduce this risk.
While the distal medial tibial locking plate has a reduced risk of implant failure, it can still occur. If this happens, patients may need to undergo additional surgeries to correct the problem.
During surgery, there is a risk of nerve and blood vessel damage. This can cause numbness or weakness in the affected area and can require additional medical attention.
The distal medial tibial locking plate is an excellent treatment option for complex fractures of the distal tibia. Its locking screws provide superior stability, reducing the risk of implant failure and promoting faster healing times. However, as with any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with its use. If you have a complex distal tibial fracture, talk to your orthopedic surgeon to see if the distal medial tibial locking plate is the right treatment option for you.
How long does it take to recover from surgery with a distal medial tibial locking plate?
Recovery time can vary depending on the severity of the fracture and the individual patient's healing process. However, most patients can begin weight-bearing activities within a few weeks and return to their normal activities within a few months.
Will I need to have the plate removed after my fracture has healed?
In most cases, the plate can remain in place permanently. However, if it causes discomfort or other issues, it may need to be removed.
How long does the surgery to implant the distal medial tibial locking plate take?
The surgery typically takes 1-2 hours, depending on the complexity of the fracture.
Are there any restrictions on physical activity after surgery?
Your orthopedic surgeon will provide specific instructions on what activities you should avoid and for how long. In general, it's important to avoid high-impact activities for several months after surgery.
Is the distal medial tibial locking plate covered by insurance?
Most insurance plans cover the cost of the distal medial tibial locking plate, but it's important to check with your provider to confirm coverage.
