The new Low Profile SOP 2.0mm system is designed for use in smaller cats and dogs with the smallest case so far being 1.8kg.
Low Profile SOP plates have a lower profile when compared to other plating systems and are especially useful in situations where there is little soft tissue cover or when periarticular tissue can impede tension free wound closure.
Made from Ti-A16-4V titanium allow, this system still uses SOP technology but requires dedicated screws which are custom made with unique screw head technology allowing an interference fit between the screw head and the plate hole.
Plates come in three sizes:
- 16 hole straight plate
- 17 hole T-plate
- 17 hole extended T-plate
All plates are cuttable
The dedicated screws are self-tapping and range in size from 6mm to 14mm in single millimetre increments
