The Baby Gorilla® 5th Metatarsal Plating System includes three unique styles of 5th metatarsal fracture specific plating options including two styles of hook plates (avulsion and Jones) as well as a compression style non-hooked plate. The hook plates contain sharp hooks allowing the plate to grab the proximal fragments and help secure them back to the bone. Additionally, this system includes instrumentation such as templates and tamps allowing optimal plate placement to help seat hooks if needed for reduced prominence, and to ensure hook engagement with bone. These plates compliment the Baby Gorilla® Mini plating System.
The Baby Gorilla® Mini Plating System is a comprehensive foot and ankle specific plating system that includes an expansive offering of over 65 unique plates all accommodating both 2.0 mm and 2.5 mm locking and non-locking variable angle plate screws. In addition, the Baby Gorilla® system includes a robust assortment of instrumentation specific to foot and ankle procedures including small pin compression and distraction tools, curettes, reduction forceps as well as straight and curved osteotomes.
