About Hinge Pediatric Plating System (Prod 10172)
The Hinge Pediatric Plating System is designed to correct deformities in growing children. This innovative plate is intended to fix pediatric mal-alignment through a less-invasive, gentle correction. The rationale behind the design of the Hinge Plate is to achieve the ideal placement of a true hinge at the growth plate, which allows for a guided manipulation of the deformity with less risk of implant failure. Unrestrained angular correction around the hinge diminishes structural stresses on the device. The Hinge Pediatric Plating System is an articulated plate used to guide growth and deformity correction. Indicated in children and adolescents with deformities such as genu varum and genu valgum. it includes one plate and two screws. By fixing the plate on either side of the physeal plate, axial growth can be controlled and angular deformity corrected.
