Angled Blade Plates

For the fixation of proximal and distal femoral fractures, osteotomy plates with different angles were introduced. Angled blade plates, which are of one-piece construction with a fixed angle between shaft and blade, were developed subsequently. The increased strength of the implant due to the fixed angle makes it less susceptible to corrosion. An added advantage of the fixed angle is the possibility of accurate placement of the plate in osteotomies. The blade of the Angled blade having U cross-section and with 95° and 130° angles are mainly used for fracture fixation. This provides high strength with minimum bone displacement.
