ContourLock HTO Plate® System
The ContourLock HTO Plate® System is indicated for use as a fixation device during opening and closing wedge osteotomies of the proximal tibia. This next generation titanium plating system consists of three distinct plate variations, including a straight wedge, A/P sloped wedge and a flat plate with no wedge, that are compatible with the current titanium cortical and cancellous HTO Plate Screws. As the result of an improved locking bushing system, each of the screws lock tightly into the plate bushings without having to use the Locking Guide for Titanium HTO Plates, further simplifying the plate and screw insertion process. This plating system will be the focus of ongoing clinical studies that evaluate its potential for early weight-bearing postoperatively.
iBalance® HTO Implants and Anchors
An alterative to traditional metal plates and screws, the iBalance HTO system consists of nonabsorbable polyetheretherketone (PEEK) implant anchors that are inserted into the proximal tibial opening wedge osteotomy site during HTO procedures to maintain and fixate the osteotomy. The iBalance HTO implants and anchors are intended for permanent implantation and, in some cases, may negate the need for a second surgical procedure to remove hardware due to overlying soft-tissue irritation.
Two-Hole Osteotomy Support Plate Implant System
The Two-Hole Osteotomy Support Plate Implant System includes an anatomically contoured two-hole titanium plate and two 4 mm x 30 mm titanium self-tapping cancellous screws. It is indicated for fixation following proximal tibial or distal femoral opening and closing wedge osteotomies. These non-locking screws fit snugly into the plate in a recessed fashion to create a low profile construct, when inserted using a standard 2.5 mm hex driver.The two-hole plate is the perfect option for supporting a fractured lateral tibial cortex during HTO procedures, as well as supporting the anteromedial tibial cortex during slope changing HTO procedures. The plate has a built-in offset hole to accept small K-wires to facilitate positioning it over the osteotomy site. The plate can be slightly bent to conform to variations in bony anatomy easily using Universal Bending Irons from the Opening Wedge Osteotomy System Set.
