Gorilla Medial Column Plating System
The Gorilla® Medial Column Plating System is a versatile medial column plating system which includes 6 plating families which are optimized for anatomical fit, deformity correction, durability and strength.
The Full Arch plates span the talus to the 1st metatarsal. The Distal Arch plates span from the navicular to the 1st metatarsal. The Proximal Arch plates span the talus to the medial cuneiform. The Extended Arch plates span from the talus to the 1st metatarsal.
The Medial Column Rescue plates span either a portion or the entire medial column.
The Medial Column Straddle plates span from the talus to the 1st metatarsal.

The Medial Column Arch plates are sized for different applications and pathologies.
The Medial Column Rescue plates can be a primary option for medial column arthrodesis or can be used as an alternative to the Medial Column Arch plates. In some situations, the Rescue plates may be a better fit for a patient’s anatomy than the Medial Column Arch plates. The Rescue plates can also be used for a revision medial column arthrodesis to avoid previous implant holes by offering an abundance of uniformly-spaced holes.
The obliquity of the screw holes allow each side of the plate to have an “extra” screw hole which provides versatility in using the plate on the right or left foot, as well as switching the orientation of the plate to best fit the anatomy of the bones being fused. The 9 – 11 – 15 hole options allow for the plate to span either a portion or the entire medial column, depending on patient needs. The varying thickness of the plates allows for use on patients who may benefit from a thicker plate due to neuropathy or difficulty with non-weight bearing restrictions versus a thinner plate, which may benefit a patient with less soft tissue coverage available.
The Gorilla® Medial Column Plating System includes 46 specific plates available in Full Arch, Extended Arch, Proximal Arch, Distal Arch, Rescue and Straddle plates options.
All plates are 1.5 – 2.0 mm thick. The Full Arch plates and the Rescue plates are offered in both 1.5 or 2.0 mm thicknesses.
Each circular screw hole accommodates a 2.7, 3.5 and 4.2 mm non-locking and locking polyaxial screw. The locking screws feature “Cheaters Lag“.
