Rival Reduce

The RIVAL™ REDUCE™ Fracture Plating System includes titanium alloy, sterile packed T, L, Y, straight plates, H Plates and BOX plates along with sterile titanium alloy bone screws. Offered in a variety of sizes, the RIVAL REDUCE Plating System is used with the RIVAL non-locking and locking bone screws. The screws are available in a variety of diameters and lengths. The corresponding instrumentation necessary for insertion is found in Orthofix’s RIVAL Instrumentation.

RIVAL instrumentation
The RIVAL Instrumentation is a comprehensive set of instruments designed to be used across all three product lines within the RIVAL foot & ankle portfolio. The tray has two levels that incorporate everything that is needed to perform surgeries from specific osteotomies to fractures including, but not limited to, the anatomical segments of forefoot, midfoot and hindfoot.

Instrumentation features are designed to:


  • Low profile, 1.3mm plate thickness for all the REDUCE plates
  • The REDUCE plates are designed with an oblong compression hole
  • Locking screws lock flush into the REDUCE Fracture Plates
  • The REDUCE plates come in a wide range of implants and sizes


The REDUCE Fracture Plates:

  • Have been designed to reduce soft tissue irritation
  • Provide compression capability
  • Are designed to reduce screw prominence
  • Come in a wide range of implant sizes and designs to provide optimal implant selection
  • Compression feature of the oblong hole allows for joint or osteotomy compression
  • The REDUCE Fracture Plating System is designed to provide surgeons with optimal implant selection


RIVAL REDUCE Plating Systems is intended for use in stabilization and fixation of fresh fractures, revision procedures, joint fusion, and reconstruction of small bones of the hand, feet, wrist, ankles, fingers and toes. The plates are available for use with the RIVAL locking and non-locking bone screws.

Example of indications for which the RIVAL REDUCE Fracture Plating System may be used, but are not limited to:

  • Metatarsal or metacarpal fractures and osteotomies
  • Phalanges fractures and osteotomies
  • Lapidus Fusion
  • Lisfranc Arthrodesis
  • 1st MPJ Arthrodesis
  • Forefoot osteotomies

Plates and screws are intended for single use only. Screws are not intended for use in the spine.


Use of the RIVAL REDUCE Plating Systems is contraindicated in the following cases:

  • In the presence of an active infection, or suspected latent infection or marked local inflammation in or about the affected area, or in patients who are immunocompromised
  • In patients with conditions such as limited blood supply, insufficient quantity or quality of bone and /or previous infections that may tend to delay healing and increase the possibility of infection and/or rejection of the implant
  • In patients with foreign body sensitivity. Where material sensitivity is suspected, a test should be performed to rule out this possibility prior to implantation
  • Patients with previous sensitivity to titanium
  • Obesity. An overweight or obese patient can produce loads on the implant that can lead to failure of the fixation of the device or to failure of the device itself
  • In conditions that limit the patient’s ability and/or willingness to cooperate and follow instructions during the healing process
  • Patients with inadequate tissue coverage over the operative site
