The ISO™ Plate with PocketLock™ Technology is a unique and creative solution for distal sliding osteotomies of the first metatarsal. The ISO Plate is a partially intraosseous plate that uses the axis of the pocket to direct the compression screw into the proximal metatarsal.
The ISO Plate with PocketLock™ Technology is intended to be used in cases where distal Chevron/Austin osteotomies are typically indicated. The ISO Plate combines the bending strength and rotational control of a plate with the compression generation of an interfragmentary.
PocketLock Technology provides the advantage of allowing the placement of an interfragmentary screw through a plate, using the plate to lock the construct in place to achieve optimal compression.
This indication specific plate is designed to utilize the blade of the plate intraosseously to create a strong construct with excellent rotational and bending strength. This allows for more stable fixation of distal osteotomies.
The custom bone prep instrumentation and the bottom-side pocket create a low profile construct with no exposed screw heads to cause soft-tissue irritation.
The system contains Tribrid™ Technology which can accommodate non-locking, fixed-angle locking, and mini variable-angle locking screws. The screws have a HexStar™ drive that may reduce the chance of stripping, a blunt tip that may reduce tendon abrasion, and a hybrid screw thread design that maximizes purchase and bite.
The Mini MaxLock Extreme Plating System is intended to stabilize and aid in the repair of fractures, fusions, and osteotomies for small bones and bone fragments.
