Locking Compression Plate (LCP) System

The Synthes Locking Compression Plate (LCP) System is part of a stainless steel and titanium plate  and  screw system  that  merges locking screw technology with conventional plating techniques.​​​​​​​​​​​


Key Features & Benefits

  • Combi hole allows the s​urgeon to choose between conventional plating techniques, locked plating techniques, or a combination of both
  • Threaded hole section for locking screws provides ability to create fixed-angle constructs
  • Smooth dynamic compression unit (DCU) hole section for conventional screws allows utilization of familiar AO plating techniques
  • Limited-contact plate design reduces plate-to-bone contact, thus limiting vascular trauma


Modular Mini Fragment LCP pates: Intended for fixation of fractures, osteotomies, nonunions, replantations, and fusions of small bones and small bone fragments, particularly in osteopenic bone. Examples include, but are not limited to, the hand, wrist, foot and ankle.

Small Fragment LCP Plates: Intended for fixation of fractures, osteotomies and nonunions of the clavicle, scapula, olecranon, humerus, radius, ulna, pelvis, distal tibia, and fibula, particularly in osteopenic bone.

Narrow and Broad LCP Plates: Intended for fixation of various long bones, such as the humerus, femur and tibia. They are also for use in fixation of periprosthetic fractures, osteopenic bone, and nonunions or malunions.

4.5 mm LCP T-Plates: Intended to buttress metaphyseal fractures of the proximal humerus, medial tibial plateau and distal tibia. They are also for use in fixation of osteopenic bone and fixation of nonunions and malunions.
