Designed to Perform

The APTUS Ankle Trauma System 2.8/3.5 is designed to provide all the low profile straight and anatomically pre-contoured plates for all surgical approaches, fractures and osteotomies around the ankle.

Anatomical Design

All anatomical pre-contoured plates are designed according to an extensive database to accommodate different patient anatomies.

Anatomical Flaps

Flaps in the Lateral Fibula and Anterolateral Tibia plates allow for capture of the Wagstaffe-LeFort fragment and Tillaux-Chaput tubercle. 

Specialised Instrumentation

Controlled reduction of the syndesmosis.


Patented TriLock locking technology provides multidirectional locking of the screw in the plate.


The APTUS Ankle Trauma System 2.8/3.5 is designed for plate insertion in all the surgical approaches around the ankle including specific MIPO instrumentation.

TriLock Distal Fibula Plates 2.8/3.5, Lateral

Design Highlights

  • Plate is available with and without flap for Wagstaff fixation.

    highlight Image
  • 20° posterior-anterior oblong hole and single syndesmotic hole for placement of syndesmotic screws or suture button implants (single hole).

    highlight Image
  • Plate position can be adjusted on the bone before final fixation.

  • Bone plates can be temporarily held in position during screw fixation of the plate.

  • 1.6 mm thick plates with offset screw geometry in the shaft​.

  • Eight distal screw fixation options for fixation of comminuted fractures or extra fixation in osteoporotic bone.

TriLock Distal Fibula Plates 2.8, Straight

Design Highlights

  • The oblong hole allows for the plate position to be adjusted before final fixation.

  • Plates are 1.6 mm thick with an offset screw geometry.

  • Standard plate has three screw placements in the distal section of the plate when extra fixation is needed.

TriLock 3.5, Straight

Design Highlights

  • Fibula fractures with syndesmosis injuries can be stabilized using the 2-, 3- and 4-hole 3.5 TriLock straight plates.

  • Holes are designed to fit the lateral button of a syndesmosis suture implant, allowing the button to sit flush within the plate.

TriLock Distal Tibia Plates 2.8/3.5, Medial

Design Highlights

  • Head of plate has multiple 2.8 mm and 3.5 TriLock and Cortical screws for the capture of small and large bone fragments.

    highlight Image
  • Thin distal metaphyseal section accepts 2.8 mm screws for malleolar fracture fixation.

  • Plate can also be used for SMO with 2 - 3 mm axial compression through the compression hole.

TriLock Distal Tibia Plates 2.8/3.5, Anterolateral

Design Highlights

  • 2.8 flap for capture of Chaput fragment if required.

    highlight Image
  • Double row of screws in the distal head accept 2.8 mm and 3.5 TriLock and Cortical screws for rafting of the tibial plafond.

TriLock Distal Tibia Plates 3.5, T and L

Design Highlights

  • Distal holes are angled 10° proximally to prevent penetration of the joint.

  • Reconstruction plate design allows for the plates to be bent 3D.

Instrument Highlights

Large Reduction Forceps

Reduction of the syndesmosis can be achieved using the reduction forceps 230 mm.

MIPO Tunnel Instrument

In a percutaneous procedure of the tibia or fibula, the MIPO instrument for tunnel preparation can be used to prepare the path for the plate next to the periosteal tissue.

Technological Milestones in Osteosynthesis


Multidirectional and angular stable locking, screws can pivot freely by ± 15° in all directions


TriLockPLUS screw holes offer the advantage of locking and compression in one step


Simplified screw pick-up due to self-holding system


Customized system arrangement and modular concept.

  • Easy to use and sterilize
  • Lightweight components 
  • Validated cleaning and sterilization of the implants
