Locking Compression Plate
Locking Compression Plate (LCP) Implants are taken for temporary ﬁxation, correction or stabilization of bones in various anatomical regions. The plates come in different sizes and shapes according to the anatomy and the intended purpose. Screws are locked in the plate, and the physiological load (F) is transferred from the bone to the plate. Locking screws can reduce the risk of screw loosening and the force applied to the cortical bone is not that excessive. Locking screws may be an advantage in osteoporotic bone and in multiple fragment fractures.
