compression plate

compression plate

a plate for internal fracture fixation with screw holes so designed that insertion of screws draws bone fragments more firmly together.

compression plate

Orthopedics A plate used to stabilize fractures, used with lag screws to provide dynamic compression on the tension side of bone; dynamic CPs are the most common types of plates, and have special oval screw holes with a beveled floor and an inclined surface, to approximate the ends of the bone as the screws tighten. See Plate.
