  • Publication number: 20210220033
    Abstract: A bone plate bending tool includes a substantially rod-shaped first member having a first sandwiching surface, a substantially rod-shaped second member slidable along a side part of the first member and having a second sandwiching surface, and a connection tubular member connected to the second member and enclosing a peripheral surface of the first member. A projection on one of the sandwiching surfaces is insertable into a through-hole of the bone plate and does not prevent the bone plate from being sandwiched between the sandwiching surfaces. The connection tubular member is axially movable on the peripheral surface of the first member while the second member is disposed on the first member's side part. The connecting tubular member that has moved axially forward restricts expansion between the sandwiching surfaces. The sandwiching surfaces, together with the forward-moved connecting tubular member, sandwich and immovably hold a peripheral edge of the bone plate through-hole.
