Universal Drill Guides (For all plates)


 Universal Drill Guide

The Universal Drill Guides are the only drill guides which function in all DePuy Synthes plate holes. When a cortex screw or cancellous bone screw is used, a Universal Drill Guide should be used to guide the drill bit. If the screw is intended to achieve interfragment compression, the Universal Drill Guide should be placed in the load position, as shown. If the screw is intended to hold the plate, the Universal Drill Guide should be placed in the neutral position.

  
 

 

 CompressionCompression

Compression is achieved by placing the Universal Drill Guide in the eccentric position, and maintaining the drill guide body above the plate as shown.

  
  
 NeutralNeutral Position

Neutral position is achieved by placing the Universal Drill Guide in the eccentric position, then compressing the drill guide body into the hole, which will shift the drill guide into the neutral position as shown.

Note: For illustrative purposes, a Combi hole has been depicted. The same methodology applies to LC-DCP and DCP holes.

 

 

  
Torque Limiting Attachment 


Torque Limiting Attachment 

The Torque Limiting Attachment (TLA) is used to ensure the propriate amount of torque is applied to minimize the risk of a locking screw backing out of the plate and cold welding the screw to the plate. The screw is securely locked to the plate when a "click" is heard.
