The LCP™ Proximal Femoral Plate 4.5/5.0 is part of the LCP Periarticular Plating System, which merges locking screw technology with conventional plating techniques. The proximal portion of the plate is precontoured for the proximal femur. The two proximal screw holes are designed for 7.3 mm cannulated locking screws and the third locking hole is designed for 5.0 mm cannulated locking screws. The hole for 5.0 mm locking screws is angled so the screw trajectory converges with the proximal 7.3 mm screw. Improved proximal femoral fixation in osteopenic bone is achieved by the screw angulation and the locking interface with the plate. The remaining screw holes in the plate shaft are combi-holes. This provides the surgeon with the flexibility to achieve plate-to-bone apposition as well as axial compression or angular stability.
