2.0 mm Biological Healing Plate 8 Hole 70 mm Long [BHP2008070]
These plates are designed to bridge a section of shattered long bone. It effectively acts as a buttress plate. No attempt is made to reconstruct. The fracture site is not disturbed to minimise de-vitalisation and contamination. The plate maintains length and permits weight bearing. Use of these plates avoids leaving empty screw holes over the fracture site which significantly weakens the construct.
