The problem with many distal radius fractures is that the distal segment is so small that it is difficult to place sufficient screws. ‘T’ Plates help but often the head portion is too bulky. Hybrid ‘T’ Plates provide a solution.The screw holes in the head are smaller and closer together than those in the shaft.
Three sizes are available; 1.5/2.0, 2.0/2.4/2.7, and 2.7/3.5.
Hybrid ‘T’ Plates will accept the same screw in the head as in the shaft but with reduced range of screw angle. The longer plate is useful for complex distal radius fractures and corrective osteotomies.
Use the smallest size Load/ Neutral Drill Guide for hole placement.
