The Paragon 28® Gorilla® MTP Plating System was designed to provide surgeons versatility in plate selection for MTP Arthrodesis
procedures, assistance with joint preparation and the ability to position the hallux in all 3 planes during temporary fixation.
The system has 32 anatomically contoured plating options to address primary, revision and graft-spanning arthrodesis.
The primary and short arthrodesis plates are offered in 0°, 5° and 10° of dorsiflexion to account for differences in anatomy.
The revision arthrodesis plates are thicker and provide more holes proximally to avoid previous screw placement.
The graft-spanning plates allow for placement of the Paragon 28® PRESERVE™ MTP Length Restoring Graft. All Gorilla® MTP
plate holes accommodate Gorilla® R3CON™ 2.7, 3.5 and 4.2 mm locking and non-locking screws.
The instrumentation provided in the Gorilla® MTP Plating System was designed to address joint preparation while facilitating
compression and/or stability at the arthrodesis site. The patented Precision® Guide mates with the desired MTP plate to provide
five trajectories of guide wire paths to allow for insertion of a 3.0 or 3.5 mm cannulated Mini-Monster® crossing screw across
the arthrodesis site, while avoiding on-axis locking and non-locking plate screws within the construct. Spin Guard Reamers are
available in the set to assist the surgeon in cartilage removal and joint preparation prior to plate and screw fixation.
