The Gorilla® Ankle Fracture Pilon Plating System includes 26 plates all of which include a transitional thickness to ensure adequate strength at the fracture site and tapering away from the fracture site to limit soft tissue irritation. The system includes three plating families: Anterior Distal Tibia Plates, Anterolateral Distal Tibia Plates, and Medial Distal Tibia Plates.
All plates were designed to allow for adequate strength at and around the fracture site while ensuring the construct is not so rigid to cause stress fractures in the tibia following implantation. The distal clustering of the Anterior and Anterolateral Plates was optimized to match the surface area and contouring of the distal tibia to maximize capture of fragments. The Distal Anterior Plates offer nine holes of capture and an increased thickness directly above the plafond. The Anterolateral Plates offer seven holes of capture and an increased thickness at the plafond and as the plate transitions medially along the tibia. The distal clustering of the Distal Medial Tibia Plates matches the surface area of the medial malleolus and allows for up to seven points of fixation
