Lock Bone Screw (Titanium)

Orthopedic locking bone screws made of titanium are specialized implants used in orthopedic surgery for the fixation and stabilization of fractures, osteotomies, and other bone-related procedures. These screws feature a unique design that allows them to engage with a compatible locking plate, providing additional stability and preventing relative motion between the screw and the plate.

Material Composition:

Titanium Alloy: Locking bone screws are typically made of titanium alloy, which offers a combination of high strength, corrosion resistance, and excellent biocompatibility. Titanium’s biocompatibility reduces the risk of adverse reactions and facilitates bone integration.

Locking Mechanism:

Unlike traditional screws, locking bone screws have a threaded portion near the head designed to engage with a corresponding threaded hole in a locking plate. This creates a fixed-angle construct, preventing the screw from toggling within the plate.

Types of Locking Screws:

Cortical Locking Screws: Designed for fixation in the dense outer layer (cortex) of bone.
Cancellous Locking Screws: Suited for fixation in the spongy or trabecular bone.
Variable Angle Locking Screws: Provide flexibility in screw placement angles.
Variable Pitch Screws: Offer variations in thread pitch along the length for optimal engagement with bone.

Thread Design:

Locking bone screws may have specialized thread patterns to optimize their engagement with the bone and the locking plate.

Head Types:

Locking screws may have various head designs, such as flat, round, hexagonal, or Torx heads, depending on the specific application and surgeon preference.

Length and Diameter:

Available in various lengths and diameters to accommodate different anatomical structures and clinical scenarios.


Titanium’s biocompatibility is crucial for orthopedic implants as it reduces the risk of inflammation or rejection by the body, promoting better healing.


Titanium locking screws are often radiopaque, allowing for easy visualization on medical imaging such as X-rays.


Like other orthopedic implants, locking bone screws are sterilized before use to maintain aseptic conditions in the surgical environment.


Locking bone screws are used in various orthopedic procedures, especially in cases where additional stability and fixed-angle constructs are necessary, such as periarticular fractures or osteoporotic bone.

Advantages of Titanium:

High strength with a relatively low density.
Corrosion resistance, contributing to long-term stability.
Favorable biocompatibility for reduced risk of complications.
