Types of threaded guides

Instrumentation

There are three types of threaded guides for the Condylar LCP.

  1. The 7.3 mm wire guide is cannulated for a 2.5 mm guide wire and screws into the central hole on the distal aspect of the plate.
  2. The 5.0 mm wire guide is cannulated for a 2.5 mm guide wire and can be screwed into any of the remaining holes in the head of the Condylar LCP.

    These guides may be screwed into the plate with a hexagonal cannulated screw driver.

  3. The 5.0 mm drill guide is used to center the 4.3 mm drill bit in the locking portion of the combi-hole.
