Joe Hauser, OrthoPediatrics’ vice president of Trauma and Deformity Correction, noted that titanium PediPlates provide an additional correction option to pediatric orthopedic surgeons worldwide. “Adding a titanium offering to OrthoPediatrics’ PediPlates physeal tethering franchise expands physicians’ treatment options, especially in patients who have a nickel allergy. The launch of our 24th surgical system strengthens our strategy to provide pediatric orthopedic surgeons with superior options for treating children.”
The PediPlates system, which includes the I-Plate, O-Plate, and Delta Plate, provides a physeal tethering technique that does not disrupt the integrity of the physis, or growth plate. It features simple plate and screw constructs that span the growth center and restrain the physis by inhibiting growth where the plates and screws are applied. The system also features stainless steel plates and screws, which provide excellent strength, resistance to breakage, and ease of removal.
