The Gorilla® Calc Fracture Plating System offers surgeons 20 total plates in three families to address fractures of the calcaneus. The system is made up of low profile lateral extensile approach plates as well as low profile sinus tarsi approach plates which may be contoured intraoperatively to the surgeon’s preference. All of the plates accept 2.7 mm, 3.5 mm, and 4.2 mm locking and non-locking polyaxial screws allowing the surgeon to target the highest quality bone around the fracture site. Additionally, all holes have a built-in recess to reduce screw head prominence.
The Perimeter Plates are constructed from CP Grade 4 Titanium making them particularly malleable and capable of being contoured to surgeon preference. These plates are intended to be inserted through a lateral extensile approach as per surgeon preference
• Up to 15 holes in the plate allowing for placement of screws around comminuted bone
The Sinus Tarsi Plates are made from Titanium (Ti6AI4V-ELI) for improved strength and are available in two configurations to address fractures of the calcaneus through a minimally invasive approach.
• The Sinus Tarsi Plate has three holes under the subtalar joint to buttress the posterior facet and three anterior holes vertically in line with the calcaneocuboid joint designed to capture best bone and allow for stable fracture fixation
• The Sinus Tarsi Support Plate has the aforementioned hole configuration as well as a posterior arm which extends to the posterior tuberosity of the calcaneus to allow for additional fixation
