The VA-LCP™ Condylar Plate 4.5/5.0 is part of the VA-LCP Periarticular Plating System which merges variable angle locking screw technology with conventional plating techniques.
The VA-LCP Condylar Plate 4.5/5.0 system has many similarities to standard locking fixation methods, with a few important improvements. Variable angle locking screws provide the ability to create a fixed-angle construct while also allowing the surgeon the freedom to choose the screw trajectory prior to “fixing” the angle of the screw.
A fixed-angle construct provides advantages in osteopenic bone or multifragmentary bridge-plated fractures where screws do not rely on plate-to-bone compression to resist patient load, but function similarly to multiple, small, angled blade plates.
The Variable Angle Locking Compression Plate (VA-LCP) has variable angle combi-holes in the plate shaft that combine a dynamic compression unit (DCU) hole with a variable angle locking screw hole. The variable angle combi-hole provides the flexibility of axial compression and variable angle locking capability throughout the length of the plate shaft.
