Evolution of Anatomic Distal Fibula Plate

There are many ways to surgically repair a fracture of the distal fibula. One such technique is to utilize an anatomic distal fibula plate to hold the correct aligned or reduced fracture fragments in place. These plates are anatomically contoured to specifically fit to the natural or native alignment of the distal fibula.

The plates are most commonly applied to the outer surface of the fibula bone and are fixed to the bone using screws. This commonly used construct allows for anatomic reduction of the fracture portion of the fibula as well as allowing for a variety of options with regard to type and size of screw, plate length, and fracture location.
