* Polyaxial system enables flexible treatment of ankle fractures

aap
Implantate AG ("aap"
) announces the market launch of the polyaxial LOQTEQ® VA Distal Tibia and
Fibula Plates 2.7/3.5. The system enables the flexible treatment of ankle
fractures, thereby addressing one of the most frequent fractures of
load-bearing joints. The LOQTEQ® VA Distal Tibia and Fibula Plates 2.7/3.5
belong to the LOQTEQ® VA (VA = Variable Angle) product family, which are
polyaxial implants that facilitate inserting angle-stable screws at different
angles. Polyaxial implants are required for treating areas such as the ankle
that in surgery require both angle stability and flexibility in the insertion
of screws.

Ankle fractures are among the most frequent fractures that receive trauma surgery treatment. To meet patients' growing demands, a fast, mobilization-stable treatment with a permanent retention of the repositioning result is required. The special combination of anatomically preformed and angle-stable plates in conjunction with freely selectable screw angles and user-friendly instruments fulfils all the requirements of modern fracture management.
The LOQTEQ® VA ankle system 2.7/3.5 consists of distal plates for the treatment of medial and anterolateral fractures of the tibia and plates for treating lateral fractures of the fibula. Variable, angle-stable round holes in the part of the plate that is close to the joint have been added to the monoaxial version of the LOQTEQ® ankle system that is already successful on the market and the profile of the tibia plates has been further optimised. The LOQTEQ® Fibula Plate 3.5 was additionally converted for 2.7 mm diameter screws in the distal part in order to fix small fracture fragments and minimise protrusion of screw heads in the event of deviations from the pre-set angle. The anatomical fit of the system as well as the low profile, the rounded edges and the smooth surfaces reduce the risk of soft tissue irritation.
aap
will shortly be launching further polyaxial variants of different LOQTEQ® products for various anatomical areas in the market.
