Canine Dorsal Pantarsal Arthrodesis Plate
The Canine Dorsal Pantarsal Range developed currently comprises two hybrid plates which covers the typical patient range. Each plate has the following features:
• Plate is much stronger around the bend to transfer stress away from vulnerable areas.
• Plate tapers distally to minimise stress riser on metatarsal at the end of the plate.
• Full hybrid. Metatarsal holes smaller than tibia holes.
• Slots above and below the bend to maximise screw angle options.
During MIPO application the distal end of the plate is fed from the
joint down through the distal keyhole. The proximal half of the plate is
pushed through and retrograded back up the tibia. All screw holes may be
accessed through keyholes.
