5MS® Plantar Plates

In contrast to traditional fixation with intramedullary screws, plantar-lateral tension side plate fixation is designed for improved resistance to torsion and plantar gapping for highly active patients like athletes. This anatomically contoured plantar plate applies compression to the tension side of the 5th metatarsal fracture, which can help facilitate fracture union, improve healing, and reduce risk of refracture.1

The plates have bullet tips at both ends to allow for smaller incisions. Available in four and five hole versions, they work with regular (2.4/2.7mm) and large (3.0mm) locking and non-locking sterile plate screws.
