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 surgical approaches around the ankle including specific MIPO instrumentation.

TriLock Distal Fibula Plates 2.8/3.5, Lateral


  • Plate is available with and without flap for Wagstaffe 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.

  • Eight screw holes in the distal end of the plate offer fixation options for comminuted fractures or extra fixation in osteoporotic bone.


TriLock Distal Fibula Plates 2.8


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

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

  • The plate has three screw insertion options in the distal section of the plate.


3.5 TriLock Straight Plates


  • 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


  • Screw combination in the distal end of the plate allows for the capture of small comminuted as well as large fragments.

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

  • Plate can also be used for supramalleolar osteotomy with 2–3 mm axial compression through the compression hole.


TriLock Distal Tibia Plates 2.8/3.5, Anterolateral


  • 2.8 flap for capture of Chaput fragment if required.

    highlight Image
  • Double row of screws in the distal end of the plate allows for reconstruction and realignment of the plafond (rafting effect).


TriLock Distal Tibia Plates 3.5, T and L


  • Distal holes are angled 10° proximally to enable further angulation of the screws.

  • 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 Instrument for Tunnel Preparation

In percutaneus tibia or fibula procedures, the MIPO instrument prepares a path for the plate next to the periosteal tissue.

3.5 Drill Sleeve, Self-Holding

The drill guide or self-holding drill sleeve prevents damage to the screw hole and protects the surrounding tissue from direct contact with the drill. The drill guide also serves to limit the pivoting angle.


Customized system arrangement and modular concept.

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