Paragon 28 launched the Baby Gorilla® Mini Plating System, designed to suit procedures that require narrower plates and smaller screws for small bones in the foot and ankle.
Based on the modularity of the company's original Gorilla® system, this version offers 65 unique plating options from 13 plating families. All are designed to accept both 2.0mm and 2.5mm locking and non-locking variable angle plate screws.
Plate options within the Baby Gorilla Plating System include straight; L-, T- and Y-plates and oblique or double versions of same as appropriate; navicular; cuboid, mesh, etc. Instrumentation is engineered specifically for use in the foot/ankle for small bone fractures and reconstruction.
