TRUMATCH® CMF Solutions – Patient Specific Plates

Patient Specific Plates for Mandible

The design of the Patient Specific Plates for Mandible is customized to meet the individual needs of each patient and surgeon. By selecting plate design features, surgeons can customize the reconstruction plate to create a patient specific solution. The Patient Specific Plates are manufactured to the planned patient anatomy, eliminating the time needed for intraoperative adaption and creating a stronger plate* with a lower overall profile.



Key Features & Benefits 


Derived from patient CT Data

Design fits the planned outcome for easy positioning of the grafts at the planned location.
Integration with ProPlan CMF** services for seamless transfer of the surgical plan into the OR, using Surgical Guides** with built-in drill guides that align with the plate holes (optional).

Customizable design features

Screw hole positions and angulations defined individually to avoid screw interference with nerves, tooth roots, osteotomies, existing or future implants.
Screw length prediction and pre-visualization of screw trajectories to ensure a collision free construct.

Strength with low profile

2.0 mm and 2.5 mm plate thicknesses for improved fatigue strength* with lower profiles compared to standard reconstruction plates.

Intended use

Patient Specific Plates are intended for oral, maxillofacial surgery.


Reconstructive surgery

Clinical applications may include

Comminuted fractures
Fractures of edentulous and atrophic mandibles
Unstable and/or infected mandibular fractures
Primary and secondary mandibular reconstruction (used with vascularized or non-vascularized bone graft)
Temporary bridging with delayed secondary
* Patient Specific Plates fatigue testing data shows increased fatigue life of both 2.0 and 2.5 mm profiles in comparison with MatrixMANDIBLE 2.5 mm thick plates. Test data does not indicate clinical performance. Test data on file at DePuy Synthes.
