About Distal Femoral Osteotomy System
The Distal Femoral Osteotomy System (“DFOS”) system includes implants to correct several distal femoral conditions, such as flexion contractures and varus/valgus deformities. Offset plates help maintain the mechanical axis. The instrumentation includes a pin guide and cut guides to assist with more precise osteotomies and implant placement.
About Locking Cannulated Blade
The Locking Cannulated Blade (“LCB”) plate system offers comprehensive treatment options for pediatric hip deformity, fixed knee flexion deformity, and trauma. The system provides enhanced fixation in bone by using locking screws in the proximal and distal fragments. It also restores the mechanical axis of the lower limb through the use of multiple offsets, giving surgeons the ability to achieve reproducible results with uniquely designed instrumentation. The LCB system is offered in three size ranges - infant, child, and adolescent. Each offers the ability to insert a locking or nonlocking screw into femoral neck to dynamically compress the fracture and osteotomy sites to create a stable construct.
