Each plate offers a low-profile, lateral extensile solution with screw holes that accept 2.7 mm, 3.5 mm and 4.2 mm locking and non-locking polyaxial screws allowing surgeons to target each fracture site of the calcaneus. The Perimeter plate boasts 15 screw holes to allow placement around comminuted bone. The Sinus Tarsi plate provides a stable construct designed to buttress the posterior facet with three holes under the subtalar joint. The Sinus Tarsi Support plate supplies the configuration of the Sinus Tarsi plate with additional screw holes situated posteriorly. System specific instrumentation includes Shanz Pins and a T-handle, a Blunt Dissection Tool for the posterior tuberosity, a Sinus Tarsi Plate Inserter and a Sinus Tarsi Incision Guide.
