Medoff Sliding Plate
The Medoff Sliding Plate is a well-proven concept in the treatment of unstable trochanteric and subtrochanteric fractures of the hip. Unlike other devices, which allow dynamic compression only along the axis of the femoral neck, the Medoff Sliding Plate is designed to provide dynamic compression along the axis of the femoral shaft as well.
The Medoff Sliding Plate consists of a compression slide and a side plate. The implant is available with 4 or 6 holes and a plate barrel angle of 135°.
The Medoff Sliding Plate is used in combination with the Hansson Twin Hook or the Swemac Lag Screw. All plates can be used in combination with the Lateral Support Plate.
The implants are made from 316 LVM stainless steel and are delivered sterile for immediate use.
Indications for the Medoff Sliding Plate
- Unstable trochanteric hip fractures
- Subtrochanteric hip fractures
- Combined trochanteric and subtrochanteric hip fractures
- Trochanteric and subtrochanteric non-unions
