Smith & Nephew Orthopaedics Division has introduced its VLP Foot Variable-angle Locked Plating system. The portfolio of innovative screws and low-profile plates expands the population of patients who can return to an active lifestyle after foot surgery. The broad range of screw types and plate designs in the VLP Foot system solves one of the key issues facing foot surgeons—matching the internal fixation technology to difficult bone types, such as osteopenic or neuropathic. The system features low-profile versions of both classic plate designs and newer anatomic ones, many of which can be used for multiple indications.
