Standard & Short MTP Plates
The screw hole design of the MTP plates keep the overall thickness to less than 1.4mm. The anatomic plates are designed with 0° dorsiflexion, delivering 15° of metatarsophalangeal dorsiflexion while preserving 10° anatomical phalangeal valgus.
The standard and long plates have a proximal oblong hole for an additional point of fixation and compression.
Long (revision) MTP plate
The long plate was designed to preserve soft tissue structures surrounding the MTP joint, by tapering the distal.
For improved strength, the long MTP plate increases in thickness to 1.6mm along the joint line.
The long plate includes a porthole for the insertion of graft into the fusion site once the plate is secured.
Un plot central peut également accueillir une vis Nexis® sécable, afin de fixer le greffon. This hole can also accommodate a Nexis® Snap-off screw, to secure any cancellous graft in place.
Low profile design > Plate thickness optimized according to the indications to limit subcutaneous discomfort.
Standard compression hole:
- Accomodates with 3 non-locking screws
- Delivers 1.5 mm of additional compression
- Corresponds to areas with high bone density
For locking or non-locking 3 or 3.5 mm screws

Monoaxial & Polyaxial System
The Airlock® Ø3mm and Ø3.5mm locking and non-locking screws may be used in all Airlock plate fixation threaded holes. However the standard compression hole only accomodate Ø3mm non-locking screws, and the Presslock® compression hole only accomodate Ø3.5mm locking screws.
- Monoaxial locking screws
- Polyaxial non-locking screws
- Tapered head
- Self-tapping design
- Self-retaining driver / screw interface
Additional compression can be achieved with a combined Nexis Ø4mm headless compression screw, beveled PECA Compressive Ø4mm screw, or Nexis Ø5mm headless compression screw.
All instrumentation is conveniently organized and color coded.
