Anchorage CP plating systems animation
The Anchorage CP Plating Systems are single use bone fixation appliances intended to be permanently implanted. They are designed with different shape plates made of biocompatible titanium. The Bone Plate Systems use either 3mm or 3.5mm screws. The drill holes of the plates are aligned to assure the screws do not touch. The plates vary essentially through different curvatures, lengths, number of plate holes and shape.
