The TPLO Curve is a 3-D contoured plate with a novel curved design which conforms to the natural shape of the tibia. The plate features both Polyaxial and Uniaxial locking screws. To achieve compression, the Angled Compression Slot cranially rotates the plate to compress the osteotomy, while the Axial Compression Slot compresses the osteotomy distally.
In addition to the antimicrobial HyProtect coating, the TPLO Curve also features a scalloped undersurface andpin holes for initial stabilization to bone. It is manufactured from 316LVM stainless steel (ASTM F139) and is packaged sterile with a five-year shelf life.
The MultiPurpose Bone Plate System is a series of plates which can be easily contoured to address multiple clinical needs with one bone plate. Multiple applications for this bone plate include, but are not limited to, pelvic osteotomy, ilial shaft fracture, proximal tibial osteotomy, distal radial fracture, and partial carpal arthrodesis. This versatility minimizes the need to inventory a wide selection of plates and pins in order to address these same clinical cases.
In addition to featuring the HyProtect antimicrobial coating, the plate is symmetrical, has a combination of angulation and compressionslots, and can be bent into left and right components. The MultiPurpose Plate is manufactured from 316LVM stainless steel (ASTM F139), which provides the highest degree of clinical success. The addition of HyProtect adds a new level of quality to the system. Each plate is packaged sterile with a five-year shelf life.
HyProtect® Antimicrobial Coating
HyProtect is a pure-silver based plasma coating which provides a continuous release of silver ions to inhibit the growth of bacteria on the surface of the implant. Without this antimicrobial protection, periprosthetic (implant site) infections may occur, generally within 12 weeks after surgery.
Though less common than surgical site (surface) infections, periprosthetic infections can hinder recovery, and may require medical treatment or surgical explantation and revision. The HyProtect antimicrobial coating provides protection from local infection for at least 100 days.
They active component of the HyProtect coating, MicroSilver is a biocompatible, chemical, mechanical and temperature stable pure elemental powder. It is produced of a combined physical vapor deposition (Silver particles) and chemical vapor deposition (SiOxCy) process.
This silver technology features broad spectrum antimicrobial efficacy, including multi-resistant germs and bacteria, and has been at use in the medical field for over 10 years.
