The principles of LC-DCP and PC-Fix are used to develop the locking compression plate (LCP).

Through a Pfannenstiel approach, a 4-hole Synthes 3.5 LC-DCP plate was placed anteriorly, and a 6-hole Synthes 3.5 pubic symphysis plate (Paoli, PA) applied superiorly.
The AO/ASIF group developed a second generation plating system called the limited contact dynamic compression plate (LC-DCP) to overcome the shortcomings of a DCP such as a flat undersurface, uneven plate hole distribution (extended middle segment) and a lesser angle of screw insertion of 25[degrees].
The concept of biological plating using the limited contact dynamic compression plate (LC-DCP).
Wenzl et al found that using the limited contract dynamic compression plate (LC-DCP) for internal fixation with locking screws demonstrated high consolidation rates as low complication rate, (13) we feel that the posterolateral distal humerus LCP plate is reliable implant for the treatment of distal humerus fractures.
Locking compression plate (LCP) was devised by combining the features of a LC-DCP and a Point Contact Fixator (PC-Fix).
The Limited contact dynamic compression plating (LC-DCP) was developed in the mid 1980's on the premise that Dynamic compression plate caused damage to the cortical blood supply of the bone due to its greater bone-plate interface.
(2) The present study is undertaken to provide satisfactory functional outcome and know the advantages and complication of the newer plate design the LC-DCP.
All the cases were openly reduced and internally fixed with 3.5mm LC-DCP. The age of these patients ranged from 16-60 years with fracture being most common in 2nd and 3rd decade and an average age of 32.26 years.
