2.4 DCPs and Screws. On a regular basis we find that for many fractures in feline and small canine patients the regular 2.0 DCP is too small and the 2.7 CDP is too large. The difference between these plates is enormous compared to the difference between 2.7 and 3.5 CDPs. The AMI (resistance to bending) of the 2.7 CDP is 20 times stiffer than the 2.0 DCP. The AMI of the 2.4 DCP is 10 times that of the 2.0 DCP. The solution is a 2.4 series of plates and screws. The plates in both size and strength are midway between 2.0 and 2.7 DCPs. The range and specifications are shown below. The standard 1.5mm hex screwdriver (used for 1.5 and 2.0 screws) is required. The pilot drill is 1.8mm and dedicated instrumentation such as load/neutral guides are also available as shown.
