Gorilla Lapidus Plating System
The Gorilla Lapidus Plating System includes several patented features: a medially positioned plate allows for improved resistance to bending compared to dorsal and dorsal to medial plates, a ramped plate proximally to avoid tendon irritation, anatomic curvature of the plate to provide a bent plate advantage, a plantar locking arm to better resist the tension side of the joint, and a Precision® Guide Lapidus for crossing screw insertion to avoid collision with the locking plate screws.
The Gorilla® Lapidus Plating System includes 18 specific plates: standard, graft-spanning and medial wall step-off.
All plates are 1.3 – 1.6 mm thick.
Each screw hole accommodates a 2.7, 3.5 or 4.2 mm non-locking and locking polyaxial screw. The locking screws feature “Cheaters Lag“.
A Precision® Guide Lapidus is provided in the system to allow for placement of a lag screw across the Lapidus Arthrodesis while missing all other screws in the construct.
