Zimmer Biomet A.L.P.S.® Proximal Tibia Plating System
The Zimmer-Biomet ALPS proximal tibia plating system is one of the next evolutions of locked plating. The plates included in this system are low profile and are designed to minimize discomfort to the patient. There are several different sizes and style of plate included in order to provide as many fixation options as possible to meet the unique anatomy of each patient’s plateau.
Each style is designed to be contoured to the speciﬁc anatomy of a different part of the plateau. Plates are made of titanium and provide multiple screw hole options for optimal fixation. Each of these screw holes also comes with special guides in order to allow for locked screws to be inserted into the plate.
