Kite malleolus

Diaphyseal and metaphyseal fractures of the distal fibula.
Intra and extra articular fractures of the distal fibula.
Consolidation delays.

The O’nil Kyte system allows a perfect reduction of the lateral malleolus and includes plates of 3 different lengths.
The elliptical hole in the diaphyseal area allows fibular malleolus sindesmosis using a standard screw.
The unique conical screw-plate locking mechanism ensures fracture stability whist avoiding pressure on the bone, preserving vascularity and accelerating the return of the patient’s previous mobility and function.
Anatomically pre-shaped plates reduce soft tissue irritation and do not require additional modelling.

Benefits and advantages
  • The patented screw-plate locking system allows easy locking of the screws, eliminates the risk of cross threading between the screw and plate, and ensures a simple operative technique.
  • Available in three different lengths
  • Plates made of steel AISI 316 LVM – ISO 5832-1, to allow MRI, screws and bushings made of titanium Ti6AI4V – ISO 5832-3
  • Bicortical fixation
  • Simple and intuitive Instruments for reduced surgery times
