About MTP Plating System
The revision arthrodesis plates are thicker, with more holes available proximally to avoid previous screw placement. The graft spanning plate allows for placement of Paragon 28’s PRESERVE™ MTP Length Restoring Graft–a selection of pre-cut, sized, aseptically processed allografts used to restore length in a shortened 1st ray. Lastly, the distal screw holes are streamlined to improve fit in a wide diversity of patients as well as offering a two hole distal option.
Also included in the Gorilla® MTP Plating System is Paragon 28’s patented Precision™ Guide MTP, which allows a foot and ankle surgeon to place a lag screw across the arthrodesis site while avoiding all of the plate screws in the construct, with the intent to save time in the OR and reduce the amount of fluoroscopy used.
The MTP Plating system offers Spin Guard Reamers in the set to assist the surgeon in cartilage removal and joint preparation prior to plate and screw fixation. The Paragon 28 Spin Guard Reamers contain a cover over the spinning reamer, which is designed to help protect the adjacent joint surface while reaming the opposing joint surface.
