Rival View

The RIVAL™ VIEW™ Plating System includes titanium alloy, sterile packed Lapidus, First Metatarsophalangeal (MTP), Calcaneal-Cuboid (CC), Evans Osteotomy and Talonavicular (TN) plates along with sterile titanium alloy bone screws. Developed to utilize a perimeter loading design, the RIVAL VIEW Plates creates a “window”, enabling monitoring of the healing process of the fracture or osteotomy. The system is offered in a variety of sizes for use 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 incorporates 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 plate design
  • Locking screws lock flush into plates
  • Wide range of implants and sizes
  • Plates with perimeter loading design with central window


  • VIEW Plates are designed to reduce soft tissue irritation
  • VIEW Plates are designed to reduce screw prominence
  • VIEW Plates are designed to help surgeons with monitoring healing of fractures, osteotomies and joint fusions


RIVAL VIEW 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 RIVAL locking and non-locking bone screws.

Examples of these procedures for which the RIVAL VIEW Plating System may be used, but are not limited to:

  • First metatarsal osteotomies for hallux valgus correction including:
    • Opening base wedge osteotomy
    • Closing base wedge osteotomy
    • Crescentic osteotomy
    • Proximal Chevron osteotomy
    • Distal Chevron osteotomy (Austin)
  • First metatarsal fracture fixation
  • Arthrodesis of the first metatarsal-cuneiform joint (Lapidus Fusion)
  • Arthrodesis of the first metatarsophalangeal joint (MTP) including:
    • Primary MTP Fusion due to hallux ridgidus and/or hallux valgus
    • Revision MTP Fusion
    • Revision of failed first MTP Arthroplasty Implant
  • Calcaneal-Cuboid Fusion
  • Talonavicular Fusion
  • Evans Osteotomy

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


Use of the RIVAL VIEW 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
