Fore-Mid-Hindfoot Plating System

A comprehensive forefoot, midfoot and hindfoot plating system merges modern technology with plating basics. This system is truly balanced by a comprehensive selection, providing surgeons with plates of all sizes and shapes to match the anatomical structures of the foot while not overloading the tray with unnecessary options.

  • Each plate features MVA (multiple variable angle) locking technology that allows screws to lock into the plate up to 25 degrees.
  • Plates range in thickness from 1.3 to 1.8mm, depending on the procedure needs, and feature chamfered edges to minimize soft tissue irritation.
  • Manufactured from grade 4 titanium with type II anodization, the plates have greater wear resistance, higher fatigue strength, and improved biocompatibility.

2.0mm Universal Plates

The 2.0mm Universal Plates feature 10 total plate options and are available in Straight, Y, and T shape designs. These low-profile plates are only 1.3mm thick and range from 17-50mm in length. The plates are offered in 3 to 8-hole designs, making them an ideal solution for metatarsal fracture fixation. 

2.8mm Universal Plates

The 2.8mm Universal Plates feature 14 total plate options and are available in Straight, T, Y, L, and Cloverleaf shapes. These low-profile plates are 1.5mm thick and range in length from 32-50mm. The variety of options and increased strength over smaller plates make them ideal solutions for Lisfranc injuries, forefoot, and midfoot arthrodesis. 

3.0/3.5mm Universal Plates

The 3.0-3.5mm Universal Plates feature 21 total plate options ranging from 23-67mm in length. The Straight, T, L, and Cloverleaf plates are 1.6mm thick while the chamfered edges minimize soft tissue disturbance. The T, L, and Cloverleaf plates feature an oval compression slot available for providing in-line compression. These universal plates were designed to be used in a variety of applications, but the larger screw diameters are ideal for midfoot applications such as TMT-1 arthrodesis where additional strength may be needed. The Rectangular and X plates are 1.8mm thick and range in size from 21x17mm up to 36x20mm. These plates were engineered for strength and are ideal for midfoot fusions. 

TMT Fusion Plates (Lapidus) 

The system offers a low-profile Medial TMT-1 plate for the fusion of the first tarsometatarsal joint. The Medial TMT-1 plate accepts 2.8mm screws and is designed to function as a neutralization plate with accompanying lag screw(s) on the lateral side of the TMT-1 joint. This construct was chosen due to its inherent strength and ability to prevent plantar gapping through primary lag screw compression. The low-profile plate features a 4-degree contour that fits the curvature of medial cuneiform while avoiding the anterior tibialis tendon insertion. The 3-degree plate bend maintains the metatarsal corrected position while minimizing the possibility of under-correction during the distal screw placement. Lastly, the screw directions are pre-determined at a convergent angle and multi-direction to maximize pull-out strength. 

MTP Fusion Plates 

The system offers both standard and revision MTP plates which are available in left/right orientation for the fusion of the first metatarsophalangeal joint. The standard construct was designed to act as a neutralization plate in combination with a lag screw across the joint while revision plates feature an oval compression slot for inline compression as lag screw placement may not be possible. The standard plates are 1.6mm thick and pre-contoured with 10 degrees of dorsiflexion. The distal cluster allows for the placement of three 2.8mm screws in the narrow phalanx, while the proximal shaft accepts 3.0mm or 3.5mm screws for improved strength. 

Opening Wedge Plate (Basal Osteotomy) 

The BioPro Foot Plating System offers a total of six Opening Wedge plates for the correction of hallux valgus. Opening Wedge plates are available in 0, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6mm wedges each accepting 2.8mm screws. The Opening Wedge Plates were designed to provide 2 degrees of correction per 1mm wedge while lengthening the metatarsal. The plates are engineered with dual proximal screw holes and a narrow shaft to minimize plate prominence often found in rectangular plates. The 4, 5, and 6mm plates all feature a 5-degree bend to maintain the metatarsal corrected alignment during insertion of the two distal screws. 

Evans Plates 

The system offers a total of ten Evans Plates to allow surgeons to restore the arch of the foot by lengthening the lateral column in cases of flatfoot. Evans plates are available in a left/right orientation with 4, 6, 8, and 10mm wedges and accept either 3.0 or 3.5mm screws. Unlike traditional designs, our plates are designed following the curve of the posterior facet which allows the wedge to rest on the hard cortical bone while minimizing contact with the peroneal tendons. 

Calcaneal Slide Plates

The system offers a total of four Calcaneal Slide Plates and may be used in both lateral and medial sliding osteotomies to allow for correction of hindfoot varus or valgus. Calcaneal Slide Plates are available in 4, 6, 8, and 10mm steps and accept either 3.0 or 3.5mm screws. The plate was engineered for strength at 2mm thick and features an oval screw slot that allows the surgeon to deliver compression through dorsiflexion of the foot. 

Calcaneus Plates

The system offers low-profile ORIF Calcaneus Plates to address fractures of the calcaneus through a minimally invasive approach. The plates are 1.6mm thick, accept 3.0 or 3.5mm screws, and are available in short (60mm), medium (69mm), or long (79mm). The plates are engineered around a three-point fixation principle, which allows for improved strength to where the surgeon can draw the calcaneal tuberosity into the plate. 

Medial 3 Column

 Medial 3 Column plates span from the talus to the cuneiform in left/right orientations and are available in short (51mm) and long (60mm) lengths. The plates are 1.8mm thick and accept 3.0 or 3.5mm screws.

Medial 4 Column

Medial 4 Column plates span from the talus to the metatarsal in left/right orientations and are available in short (82mm) and long (94mm) lengths. The plates are 1.8mm thick and accept 3.0 or 3.5mm screws.

Medial Distal Column

Distal Medial column plates span from the navicular to the metatarsal and are available in short (66mm) and long (75mm) lengths. The plates are 1.8mm thick and accept 3.0 or 3.5mm screws.
