TPLO with DePuy Synthes

The threads on the locking screw mate with the threads in the plate hole to form a rigid, fixed-angle construct. Unlike traditional (non-locking) systems, the fixed-angle construct does not rely on friction between the plate and the bone to maintain its integrity. Less friction here is intended to preserve blood supply and promote faster healing.
 
The expected outcome is significant improvement with a high potential for normal weight bearing.
