MetaFix™ MTP Plate

Arthrodesis of the metatarsophalangeal joint

Designed in collaboration with Steven K. Neufeld, M.D., at the Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Center in Washington, the anatomically shaped MetaFix™ MTP plate is used for arthrodesis of the metatarsophalangeal I joint. The plate features 6 fixed-angle screw holes that can be used with either 3.0 or 3.5 mm fixed-angle screws, depending on bone structure. The plate has a compression hole to enable axial compression of the osteotomy gap using an eccentrically placed cannulated compression screw. The combination of anatomically shaped plate and fixed-angle screws provides exceptional primary stability that can allow patients to put weight on the foot quickly.
