ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a study to review the history of locked plates and provide recommendations for future trends in its clinical application. Fixation with conventional compression plates has its limitations. Locked plates have become an attractive alternative to conventional plates as they can be used as "bridge plates" to preserve fragmentary blood supply. Locked plates facilitate two-column support and have been clinically successful in situations in which dual compression plates.

    A 65-year-old woman presented with basilar invagination manifesting as neck pain, dysesthesia around the lips, and truncal ataxia. The radiological findings demonstrated invagination of the odontoid process into the medulla oblongata and vertical atlantoaxial subluxation with C1 assimilation....

    The LCP (locking compression plate) system is a new type of extramedullary fixation for the management of fractures. A special design allows the surgeon to use it as a standard plate or as an internal fixator. The combined hole permits the use of standard screws, such as «locking» screws,...

    In the presented study the problem of testing the plates for proximal tibia osteosynthesis was solved. Each specimen was loaded by repeated cyclic load. The required minimum number of cycles was 200 000, and minimum of required load was 2,5 kN. Tested specimens are in agreement with designated...

    Of all long bone fractures in adults, only 10% involve the proximal tibia. Despite of the advanced implants and surgical technique, proximal tibia fractures involving articular surface, especially AO/OTA C-types, still remain a great challenge for the surgeon. The purpose of the study was to...

    In recent years, the locked plating system has gained favour in the treatment of certain fractures in adults; however, there is not much information regarding its use in children. We think there could be some advantages and applications such as: an alternative to external fixation, the bridge...
