Medoff sliding plate

Medoff sliding plate

An orthopaedic plate designed to stabilise and fix subtrochanteric femoral fractures. Unlike other devices (e.g., the standard compression screw system), which allow dynamic compression only along the axis of the femoral neck, the Medoff sliding plate provides dynamic compression along the axis of the femoral shaft.
