Locking Screws and Plates
Locking Screws and Plates

Standard DCP or round hole plates are held into position by being trapped between the head of the screw and the bone.  Tightening the screw pulls the bone up to the plate. When the screw is tight the threads of the screw pull against the bone holding the plate in position.

The situation with locking screws and plates is very different. Although the threads of the screw shaft engage the bone, the interface between bone and screw is not related to attachment of the plate.

In locking plates and screws it is the interface between the screw head and the plate which attaches the plate to the screw. As the screw is tightened the bone maintains its position relative to the plate, it is not drawn up to it. The screw head engages with the plate.
