MetaFix™ Plantar BG10 Plate

Plantar arthrodesis after lapidus

Developed in collaboration with Dr. med. Bernd Gaudin, Waldfriede Hospital Berlin, the MetaFix™ Plantar BG10 Plate is suitable for hallux valgus correction with medium to large intermetatarsal angles. Plantar plate placement provides two advantages: For one, such placement has a biomechanical effect based on the tensile principle, i.e., loading closes the osteotomy gap. For another, soft-tissue coverage (e.g. by the abductor hallucis), is so effective that spot pressure loading cannot cause soft-tissue irritation.
In combination with angular stability, this results in high primary stability, which enables quick weight-bearing and patient mobilisation.
