Function of the polyaxial plate family In case if the smaller fractures of the bones - particularly the ruined fractures - the optimal fixing direction can be widely varied. In this case, neither the conventional AO-screws, nor the locking screws do not provide any satisfactory results. Foot and hand surgery cases, but up to the shoulder and other small bones, the polyaxial plates are excellent alternative. Toothed lamellas are built according to the functional principle in the holes. The geometry of the lamellas are function along with the specially designed screws. The connection between the screw and the hole allows the surgeon (up to the case of fracture) with the freedom of + / - 15 ° degrees to choose the direction of the screw recovery. This polyaxial range ensures the connection of the special screw head and the lamellas. In case of some plates are generally cannulated fastening techniques may be used. Distal radius plate The priority member polyaxial family is the distal radius plate. They could provide a comprehensive facility of the radius fractures, for which left and right side plate versions are available. We can choose the right fixing points from the 9 pieces of holes of the plate head. The position of the plate and the reposition accuracy can be made by Kirschner-wires. Beside the 2.7-mm screw - if the bone is porotical - 3.5-mm polyaxial screws can also be used. Different sizes of plates are available according to theirs length of the stem. For the operation a complete surgical instrument set is available, filled up with plate and screw holders.
