OrthoLine™ Fracture System

The OrthoLine fracture management system allows the surgeon to perform a fracture repair with the same screws used in the TPLO System. The 70-plate, state-of-the-art fracture line includes sizes 1.6 mm, 1.6 mm broad, 2.0 mm, 2.4 mm, 3.0 mm, and 3.5 mm for straight and T-style plates and 3.5 mm broad straight plates for both feline and canine patients.

Designed with the surgeon in mind, the plates have many features to help create a more reproducible procedure: The locking straight plates include a slide hole, which allows slight movement across the fracture line to facilitate the best plate placement. The low-profile design reduces prominence under the skin and features, limiting bone-to-plate contact. Plate size and length were specifically designed to include hole-to-hole spacing.

Tight screw density on the distal and proximal ends with larger bridges near the center of the plate allows surgeons to fit more screws in the same footprint than competitive plates. Additional features designed to aid in proper plate placement include K-wire holes, variable-angle locking screws for the titanium lines, slide holes, and compression holes. OrthoLine plates can be contoured using size-specific bending irons and cannulated bending plugs, which can also function as K-wire holes in any locking screw hole.

In addition to the new OrthoLine fracture plates, the fracture management system includes a variety of screw options, including fully threaded headless compression screws, partially threaded screws, cannulated lag screws, low-profile screws, and QuickFix™ cannulated screws.
