VetKISS™ R-plates (rigid plates) should be used in most long bone fracture scenarios and are not designed to be contoured from side to side. When contouring R-plates one should use two forceps and direct the bend between screw holes as to avoid potential screw hole damage.
These cut-to-length plates are available in two options: straight and shaped. The shaped plate features a "T" and an "L" on opposite ends allowing the surgeon to choose appropriate plate geometry while minimizing inventory. Symmetrical design allows for use as a left- or right-handed plate. 316LVM stainless steel.
