Tornier offers a variety of low profile, anatomic plates designed with the Foot & Ankle Specialist in mind. Ankle fracture solutions include the DTX Medial Distal Tibia plates and DFX™ Distal Fibula plates. The implants are part of the comprehensive MaxLock Extreme™ system, with Tribrid™ Technology for fixed angle, variable angle, and non-locking capability.
The DFX Distal Fibula plate is fully contoured to match the anatomical contour of the fibula’s lateral malleolus for fixation of Weber type A, B and C fractures. Better anatomical fit equals more secure fracture fixation and return to natural bony anatomy and function.
The DTX Medial Distal Tibia Plate is an anatomically contoured plate that is designed to sit anteriorly in order to avoid impingement of the posterior tibial tendon across a range of patients.
All plates contain Tribrid™ Technology which can accommodate non-locking, fixed angle locking, and variable angle locking screws to provide fixation without compromise.
The MaxLock Extreme Universal Module is indicated for use in adult or pediatric patients as indicated for pelvic, small and long bone fracture fixation and fixation of bones that have been surgically prepared (osteotomy) for correction of deformity or arthrodesis. Indication for use include internal fixation of the tibia, fibula, femur, humerus, ulna, radius and bones in the hand, wrist, foot and ankle.
