Locking compression plate in periprosthetic fractures

Maggi F., Lanzani E., Costa G.

Servizio Interdivisionale di Traumatologia Istituto Ortopedico Gaetano Pini, Milano

The locking compression plate (LCP) system, with angularly stabilized screws, admits monocortical screws specifically cut at their end: these screws, together with the cerclages, can enhance the stability of the implant.
