The MaxLock Extreme™ Plate and Screw System is a comprehensive foot and ankle system which contains a versatile set of universal and indication specific implants and instruments. The unique anatomical contour of the plates allows for an accurate fit. Low profile plates come in a variety sizes and shapes to meet the needs of a surgeons’ patient population. The implants incorporate compression slots and Tribrid™ Technology for a range of stability in several areas.
MaxLock Extreme can be used for multiple procedures including, but not limited to: 1st MTP fusions, naviculo-cunieform fusions, jones fractures, lisfranc injuries, lapidus, TMT fusions, fibula fractures, calcanealcubiod fusions, ankle fusions and talonavicular fusions. The modularity of this platform system has allowed for continued plate and screw innovation with supplementary plate caddies to meet your practice and patient needs.
The plates contain Tribrid™ Technology which allows the surgeon to base their screw choice on the patient needs and bone quality. The threaded holes of the plate can accommodate either a non-locking, fixed angle locking, and variable angle locking screw.
All the screws provided in the MaxLock Extreme system incorporate a hybrid thread form. The hybrid thread form has the smaller pitch of a cortical screw and the wide threads of a cancellous screw which is designed to optimize purchase and enhance pull-out strength. The screws feature a tapered minor diameter throughout the first few threads to increase the bending strength. The screws are blunt tipped and self-tapping, and contain a HexStar™ drive designed to maximize the surface contact of the driving mechanism and reduce the chance of stripping.
The MaxLock Extreme is indicated for fractures, fusions and osteotomies of bones in the hand, wrist, foot and ankle in pediatric and adult patients.
