Supracondylar Plate 2.4 mm 62 mm Long Left [152711L]
Supracondylar femoral fractures in mature animals can be very difficult to repair. Small fragment size makes placement of sufficient implants a challenge. In medium and large dogs there are often multiple small fragments in the supracondylar area. The forces acting on the distal femur are complex requiring a special plate to neutralise them. The 2.7 and 3.5mm plates were developed by Mark Glyde using finite element analysis. Available in a range of sizes and lengths. 2.0, 2.7, 3.5 broad & 3.5 narrow (two lengths). Use bending templates to pre-contour plates.
