English to Latvian translations [PRO] Medical - Medical: Instruments / spine fixation device
Explanation: The bone screw apertures each include an integral locking mechanism to ensure that the bone screws do not back out of the plate member. The locking mechanisms and the bone screw apertures allow for angular freedom of insertion of the bone screws into a vertebral body or other bone portion.
