Airlock® Basal Osteotomy / Open Wedge Plates

The Basal Osteotomy plates come in left and right configurations and are only 1.0mm thick to accommodate the limitations of the soft tissue envelope of the medial column. Three wedge sizes allow a range of opening angles, whereas the 0mm (no wedge) plate facilitates the fixation of closing osteotomies. All screw holes allow usage of Ø3.0mm or Ø3.5mm, locking and non-locking screws.
