Paragon 28 continues to honor this tradition with the launch and release of the Baby Gorilla Mini Plating System.
The Baby Gorilla Mini Plating System leverages the modularity, optionality, and specificity used in the classic Gorilla Plating system and offers a comprehensive set of implants for procedures that may require narrower plates and smaller screws matching the size and anatomy of small bones within the foot and ankle.
The system provides 65 unique Baby Gorilla plating options from 13 plating families. All plates are designed to accept both 2.0 and 2.5 mm locking and non-locking variable angle plate screws.
The system offers the most extensive array of universal utility, fracture, and procedure specific plates which require minimal manipulation to achieve satisfactory results.
Plate options found within the Baby Gorilla Plating System include:
- Straight Plates
- Oblique L-Plates
- Oblique T-Plates
- Navicular Plates
- Cuboid Plates
- Mesh Plate
- Jones Fracture Compression and Hook Plates
- 5th Metatarsal Avulsion Fracture Hook Plates
- Akin Osteotomy Plates
The Baby Gorilla Mini Plating System also includes an assortment of specially designed instrumentation including curettes, reduction clamps, osteotomes, plate bending tools and compression and distraction devices engineered specifically for use in the foot and ankle for small bone fractures and reconstruction procedures.
Paragon 28 is grateful for the significant contributions Dr. Patrick Yoon, MD Hennepin County Medical Center Minneapolis, Minn. and Dr. Thomas Harris, MD UCLA-Harbor Medical Center, Torrance, Calif. made as surgeon designers of this system.
