It was not long ago that the MBD engineers began development of a superior clavicle fixation system based on an idea presented to them by Thomas D. Meade, MD.
As a result of the collaboration between the MBD staff and Dr. Meade, his concept is now a reality and available for all surgeons to use.
Consider the many attributes and benefits of this self-contouring plate and screw system.
- Patented self-contouring feature saves operative time… surgeries can be performed in one hour or less.
- Patented self-contouring feature improves plate-to-bone fit… allows for secure and low profile fixation and overcomes fit and cost issues common to pre-contoured anatomic locking plates.
- No more struggling to bend a plate to fit the complex and highly variable clavicle… the plate conforms to bone in situ as the specially designed screws are inserted and tightened.
- No more guessing the plate size… there are only six (6) plates that work for the right or left clavicle which translates to less inventory, easier application and better outcomes.
