YDFIX Distal Tibia

YDFIX Plate System – Advantages overview

• Polyaxial angle-stabilized (AS) locking system which allows surgeons +- 15 degree (step-free) devation from the anatomically preset direction (30 degree freedom of motion for fixing fracture fragments)
• Innovation-award-winning plate-system consisting of over 30 plates with which the entire body can be operated on using only 3 screw diamaters
• As a result of having to use only 3 screw diamters surgeones can work with straightforward, easy-to-use insrtument sets which contain identical tools that can be used the same way in each YFDIX instrument set 
• Soft tissue protection ensured by rounded contours and blunt headed screws
• Minimal invasive surgical technique supported


For the treatment and optimal healing of ankle area fractures the YDT (YDFIX Distal Tibia) system is necessary with its polyaxial fixation and minimally invasive surgical technique.


Main characteristics and advantages:

– Polyaxial angle stabilized system in step – free ±15 deg angulation of insertion from base directions

– Maximum 3 times of correction possibility when misidentifying the correct screw direction

– Optimal, anatomically pre-determined screw directions in the holes

– Thinned head, the implant does not interfere with the soft tissues

– Rounded edges to protect nearby soft tissues

– Plate thickness optimized for load conditions

– Ability to perform minimally invasive surgery

– Oval hole for plate positioning

– Bendable distal tab for medial malleolar fractures

– Self tapping but blunt ended screws to avoid tissue irritation

– Anodized Titanium raw material

– The system can be locked in the anatomically preset directions and polyaxial as well.

– Radiolucent targeting system for minimally invasive targeting of the tail of the plate
