Advanced Locking Plate System

“Biological internal fixation” involves the use of locked internal fixators, which have minimal implant-to-bone contact, long-span bridging and fewer screws for fixation. The Advanced Locking Plate System (ALPS)* is a biological internal fixation system that was designed from the beginning to protect the bone, provide stability and promote rapid healing.

The ALPS plating system builds on research and development work done on the PC-Fix (Point Contact Fixitor) in the 1980’s and 1990’s at the AO Research Institute, Davos, Switzerland. Numerous publications have documented the PC-Fix design and clinical results. Please see the Reports section for references.

Increased resistance to infection and faster, more consistent healing are all but certain benefits to come from clinical applications. Versatility of the plates with bending in both planes, as well as their geometry optimized for strength and soft tissue cover, are also considered worthwhile improvements over state of the art in internal fracture fixation.

Tibial Tuberosity Advancement 

Since the invention of TTA by KYON founder, Slobodan Tepic, the procedure has been evolving. Unlike TPLO, a procedure strongly patented and closely curated during its early clinical development, TTA and the implants and instruments required to perform the procedure were not patented.

The result has been a significant variation in the quality and thoroughness of TTA instruction and, therein, surgical application. Several of the companies copying TTA offered abbreviated courses with little or no attention to planning and soft tissues. If you learned TTA at another training event, from a colleague, or online, it is highly likely that your TTAs are less than ideal.

As the inventor of TTA, we have a unique insight and commitment to, not only the device, but also the procedure. KYON has supported over 20 in vitro tests, several publications, and many posters and presentations. Our emphasis on preoperative planning and surgical execution is like no other TTA course. Our exceptional faculty of TTA instructors have contributed enormously to the refinement of the technique, conquering of challenging patients and understanding of clinical outcomes.
