EdgeLock™ Calcaneal Slide Osteotomy Plate

The EdgeLock™ plating technique creates a firm buttress to prevent redisplacement of a sliding type calcaneal displacement osteotomies. The low profile construct does not violate the the heel pad or disrupt the growth plate.

EdgeLock™ Calcaneal Slide Osteotomy Plate

General Information

The EdgeLock is a partially intraosseous plate which is inserted through a single lateral incision eliminating the possibility of scar tissue build up in the heel pad. The EdgeLock can be used for either medial or lateral calcaneal sliding osteotomies.

Features & Benefits

  • The small footprint minimizes the amount of soft tissue stripping required compared to typical lateral plates
  • The intraosseous design eliminates any possible irritation with the peroneal tendons on the anterior segment of the calcaneus
  • The technique may reduce OR time by eliminating the need for fluoroscopy during insertion.
  • The plate “hood” aids in optimal compression of the posterior fragment and the 14° of angulation allows the surgeon the opportunity to capture the sustentaculum.
  • The plating technique does not violate the growth plate of the calcaneus in pediatric patients
