Product Description

What is Proximal Femoral Locking Plate?

The Proximal Femoral Locking Plate is part of the LCP Periarticular Plating System, which merges locking screw technology with conventional plating techniques.  The LCP Periarticular Plating System is capable of addressing complex fractures of the proximal femur with the 4.5 mm LCP Proximal Femur Plates and Proximal Femur Hook Plates, complex fractures of the distal femur with the 4.5 mm LCP Condylar Plates, and complex fractures of the proximal tibia with the 4.5 mm LCP Proximal Tibia and LCP Medial Proximal Tibia Plates.

Proximal Femoral Locking Plate: A Comprehensive Guide

Introduction

The proximal femoral locking plate (PFLP) is a widely used orthopedic implant used for the treatment of femoral fractures. This article aims to provide a comprehensive guide on the PFLP, including its design, indications, surgical technique, complications, and outcomes.

Anatomy of the Proximal Femur

Before delving into the details of the PFLP, it is important to understand the anatomy of the proximal femur. The proximal femur is the uppermost part of the femur bone, extending from the hip joint to the femoral neck. It consists of the femoral head, neck, and greater and lesser trochanters.

Design of the Proximal Femoral Locking Plate

The PFLP is a type of internal fixation device used to stabilize fractures of the proximal femur. The plate is made of titanium or stainless steel and has multiple screw holes that allow for the insertion of screws to secure the plate to the bone. The plate has a locking mechanism that provides stability by locking the screws to the plate, preventing the screw from backing out.

Indications for Proximal Femoral Locking Plate

The PFLP is used for the treatment of various fractures of the proximal femur, including intertrochanteric fractures, subtrochanteric fractures, and femoral neck fractures. It is also used in cases of failed fixation with other devices or in cases of non-union.

Surgical Technique

The surgical technique for PFLP placement involves an open reduction and internal fixation approach. The plate is contoured to fit the patient's anatomy, and screw holes are drilled into the bone. The plate is then fixed to the bone using screws, and the locking mechanism is engaged to secure the screws to the plate.

Complications of Proximal Femoral Locking Plate

Like all surgical procedures, PFLP placement has its share of complications. The most common complications include infection, screw cutout, malalignment, and non-union. These complications can lead to implant failure and the need for revision surgery.

Outcomes of Proximal Femoral Locking Plate

Despite the risks of complications, the PFLP has been shown to have good outcomes in the treatment of proximal femur fractures. Studies have reported high rates of fracture union, improved hip function, and decreased pain in patients who undergo PFLP placement.

Conclusion

The proximal femoral locking plate is a valuable tool in the treatment of proximal femur fractures. Its design and locking mechanism provide stability and allow for early mobilization of the patient. While complications can occur, the PFLP has been shown to have good outcomes and remains a popular choice among orthopedic surgeons.
