One third Tubular – Dimensions are 9mm wide, 1.1mm pre contoured. Use with 3.5mm Cortical Screws.
Used as a compression plate for smaller bones or metatarsals and metacarpals in larger breeds. The pre-contoured shape of the plate adds to the strengths even though it remains dimensionally thin. Compression is applied by eccentric positioning of the screw against the side of the screw hole furthest from the fracture line.
The relative thinness of this plate facilitates closure of soft tissue over the plate and due to the tubular contoured plate design it lends itself well to high torsional and bending strengths.
