MetaFix™ LS fixed-angle screws

A screw system for Merete® Foot Plates

Fixed-angle MetaFix™ LS Screws are a screw system that can be used to secure Merete® Foot Plates. Each screw diameter is compatible with multiple fixed-angle Merete Foot Plate holes. This not only reduces clinic storage and replacement costs, but also offers doctors a high degree of intraoperative flexibility.
