Custom Locking Blade Plate for Periarticutar Fractures and Nonunions

Andrew H. Schmidt, David C. Templeman

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Customized blade plates fashioned from standard plates can be applied to a number of challenging situations involving fresh or ununited metaphyseal fractures. By placing a long screw across the long and short axes of the custom blade plate after it is inserted, the implant is effectively locked into the metaphyseal fragment with excellent fixation. This technique is illustrated in several case examples.
