The Marquardt L-plate Locked Plate offers an innovative, stable method of fixation for fusion of the 1st tarsometatarsal (TMT) joint.
Advantages of Lapidus Procedure are:
Extremely stable locked-screw fixation.
The stepped design of the plates allows accurate planarization of the metatarsal to counter shortening.
Low profile, anatomically contoured plate minimizes soft tissue irritation.
Pre-determined locked screw positions eliminate screw collision.
Designed for the unique challenges of Lapidus
