MetaCun™ II and DuoMetaCun™ II Plates

The MetaCun™ II and DuoMetaCun™ II plates are osteosynthesis locking plates for dorsal fixation of mid and rearfoot arthrodesis procedures. Merete’s updated system utilizes a novel long-hole compression slot mechanism that compresses the fusion site through the displacement of bone fragments underneath the plate. A DIA 3.0 mm compression screw that glides along the ramp in the distal long-hole slot during insertion causes the fusion site to compress.
