Product Description

What is Lateral Tibial Head Buttress Locking Plate?

The CZMEDITECH 3.5 mm LCP® Lateral Tibial Head Buttress Locking Plate is part of the LCP Periarticular Plating System, which merges locking screw technology with conventional plating techniques.


Lateral Tibial Head Buttress Locking Plate, and complex fractures of the proximal tibia when using the 3.5 mm LCP Proximal Tibia  Plates and 3.5 mm LCP Medial Proximal Tibia Plates.


The locking compression plate (LCP) has Combi holes in the plate shaft that combine a dynamic compression unit (DCU) hole with a locking screw hole. The Combi hole provides the flexibility of axial compression and locking capability throughout the length of the plate shaft.

Introduction

A lateral tibial head buttress locking plate is a surgical tool used to stabilize fractures of the lateral tibial head, which is the top of the tibia bone on the outer side of the knee joint. This type of plate is often used in cases where a fracture is particularly severe or unstable, or when traditional methods of immobilization (such as casting) are not sufficient.

Anatomy of the Lateral Tibial Head

The lateral tibial head is the rounded, bony prominence on the outer side of the knee joint that articulates with the femur (thigh bone) to form the knee joint. Fractures of the lateral tibial head can occur due to trauma or overuse injuries, and can range in severity from hairline cracks to complete breaks that disrupt the entire joint.

How does a lateral tibial head buttress locking plate work?

A lateral tibial head buttress locking plate is surgically attached to the lateral tibial head using screws, with the aim of providing stable fixation and support for the fractured bone as it heals. The plate has a contoured shape that allows it to fit snugly against the outer surface of the bone, helping to prevent displacement and promote proper alignment.

The "buttress" portion of the plate refers to the fact that it has a raised ridge or edge that provides additional support to the fractured bone. This can be particularly useful in cases where the fracture is unstable or involves multiple pieces of bone.

Who is a candidate for surgery with a lateral tibial head buttress locking plate?

Candidates for surgery with a lateral tibial head buttress locking plate typically have a severe or unstable fracture of the lateral tibial head that cannot be adequately stabilized with non-surgical methods. Your doctor will determine if this type of surgery is appropriate based on factors such as the location and severity of the fracture, your overall health, and your activity level.

What are some potential risks and complications?

As with any surgery, there are potential risks and complications associated with the use of a lateral tibial head buttress locking plate. These may include infection, bleeding, nerve damage, and hardware failure (such as the plate or screws breaking or loosening over time). It is important to closely follow your doctor's instructions for pre- and post-operative care to help minimize the risk of complications.

Recovery and Rehabilitation

Recovery and rehabilitation after surgery with a lateral tibial head buttress locking plate typically involves a period of immobilization (such as with a cast or brace) followed by physical therapy to help restore strength and range of motion to the affected knee. The length of the recovery period will depend on the severity of the fracture and the individual patient's healing response.

Conclusion

A lateral tibial head buttress locking plate can be a useful tool in stabilizing severe or unstable fractures of the lateral tibial head. While there are some risks associated with the surgery, the benefits of stable fixation and support can make it a good option for many patients. If you are considering this type of surgery, be sure to discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor.
