DiPHOS R plate is the first application of Peek (CFR Peek 30%) in trauma, even if the material has already been proved in clinical use since several years in spine surgery. We use Peek (CFR Peek 30%) for the plate and Ti6AI4V for the angular stability screws. Advantages are the following: The screw will tap the hole, allowing the surgeon to insert it in the ideal axis; Peek is inert. We avoid the very common galvanic corrosion phenomenon between the screw and the plate typical of angular stability system, thus an easier removal; The plate is transparent, allowing a more precise positioning and a very easy follow up of the healing process.
