Locking Proximal Femur
The Locking Proximal Femur (LPF) plate system is designed for long bone fractures and osteotomies in children and adolescents, and is indicated for derotational and angular osteotomies, where a bone is cut to shorten, lengthen, or change its alignment. The system’s implants and instruments are used to perform varus and valgus osteotomies for patients with varus, or bow-legged, deformities or valgus, or knock-kneed, deformities.
All plates offer the ability to insert three screws into the femoral neck and dynamically compress the osteotomy site, thereby creating a stable construct. Also, instruments and implants are cannulated to enable the surgeon to maintain control of bony fragments throughout the entire procedure.
