Baby Gorilla® Y-Plates

  • 3 double ended Y-plates
  • 2 single ended locking plates
  • 2 single ended compression plates

These plates were designed to span over multiple areas from forefoot to hindfoot. The smaller 7-hole Y-Plates are offered with and without compression slots to ease 1st TMT procedures. Larger options, such as the double ended 18-hole locking plate, were designed to span the 4th and 5th metatarsal to the calcaneus.

Product Description

The Baby Gorilla® Mini Plating System includes 16 specific plates and 52 universal plates.

All plates are either 1.1 mm thick (57 plates) or 1.4 mm thick (12 plates).

Each circular screw hole accommodates a 2.0 and 2.5 mm non-locking and locking screw in sizes ranging from 8 to 50 mm. Compression slots are available on some of the plates and are compatible with non-locking screws. The locking screws are designed to allow for up to 15° off-axis locking placement.

The Baby Gorilla® locking screws have the capability to lag the plate down to the bone, reducing prominence and creating a rigid construct.
