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.

Different implants have been used for MIPO from 4.5mm narrow Dynamic compression plate (DCP), 4.5 mm locking compression plate (LCP) to precontoured distal Tibial LCP (DT-LCP).

Fracture fixation using Locking Compression Plate (LCP) is a relatively recent technique in veterinary practice with limited time-honoured guidelines for their use, primarily extrapolated from human literatures.
Internal fixation got fame with development of biocompatible metals like Vitallium and titanium and transosseous wiring with intermaxillary fixation, at the superior border one non-compression mini plate, two non compression mini plates, at the border one tension band, two dynamic compression plates and one compression plate at the inferior border were applied for primary healing of bone.8
Socket also includes integrated compression plate that has a center opening for accessing device top surface.
The chondrocyte/agarose constructs were then allowed to gel at room temperature and punched to obtain cylindrical gels (5 mm in diameter and 3 mm in height) that were placed into the wells of a Biopress™ compression plate (Flexcell International Corporation, Burlington, North Carolina, USA).
Prone S-VABs are performed with the patient lying on the biopsy table with the breast inserted into an opening in the table and compressed between the image receptor and compression plate. The compression plate contains the biopsy window, typically 5x5 cm in size.
Surgical debridement, open reduction, and internal fixation of the humeral fracture with 4.5 mm locking compression plate were performed.
Once reduction was considered acceptable, a 2.7 mm locking compression plate (LCP) (DePuy Synthes Vet, Chester, PA) was placed using a MIPO technique to stabilize each of the fractures [24].
