The largest segment in the total plate and screw market was locking type. The relatively large size of this segment is due to the biomechanical advantages of the locking system over the standard system, which, among other things, provides better blood supply to the underlying bone (the plate is locked to the screws rather than the bone, as in the standard system) and does not require precise plate contouring.
Plating devices were pioneered by the Association for the Study of Internal Fixation (AO/ASIF) in Switzerland. Early sales and marketing was done by the Straumann Group, of which the companys osteosynthesis division eventually became Synthes, which was acquired by Johnson & Johnsons Depuy in 2012 to become DePuy Synthes.
