Journal Abstract Objective Small olecranon fractures present a significant challenge for fixation, which has resulted in development of plates with proximal extension.

Parallel Plating The first-to-market precontoured elbow plates are designed to provide multiple fixation avumed for fractures of the distal humerus, olecranon, and coronoid. Olecranon Plate The screw trajectory is designed to allow screws to capture fracture fragments and avoid other screws regardless of the screw length selected. A straightforward solution for treating fractures when the radial head is salvageable.

Methods Sixteen matched pairs of fresh-frozen human cadaveric elbows were used. Product Overview Systen Acumed Elbow Plating System offers multiple fixation options for fractures of the distal humerus, olecranon, and coronoid, as well as osteotomies of the olecranon.

Radial Head Plating System A straightforward solution for treating fractures when the radial head is salvageable. The Acumed Radial Head Plating System is intended for fracture fixation when the radial head is salvageable.

The Lateral Column Plates improve upon the biomechanics of posterior plating by enabling longer screws in the articular fragments to interdigitate with the screws from the medial side. Email Updates Yes, please send me updates by email. Conclusion Standard fixation plates are sufficient for the fixation of small transverse fractures, but caution should be utilized particularly with comminution and nontransverse fracture patterns.

Especially in case of Monteggia fractures with instability of the radiocapitellar joint, surgeons could be misguided by plates that do not incorporate anterior angulation, resulting in subluxation of the radial head on the capitellum.

In addition, the screw trajectory allows screws to capture fracture fragments and avoid other screws regardless of the screw length selected. The ulnae were cyclically loaded and subsequently loaded to failure, with ultimate load, number of cycles, and gap formation recorded.

Designed to provide an anatomic fit, the plates contour proximally and along the shaft. Specifically designed for isolated capitellar fractures and for surgeons who prefer a 90 degree degree plate application.

Results Measurements showed a mean dorsal aucmed angle of The Acumed Lateral Column Plates improve upon the biomechanics of posterior plating by enabling longer screws in the articular fragments to interdigitate with the screws from the medial side. The first-to-market precontoured elbow plates are designed to provide multiple fixation options for fractures of the distal humerus, olecranon, and coronoid.

In addition acuumed citing existing scholarly papers, we conduct ongoing clinical research and use this information for validation and continuous improvement to deliver the greatest elhow to our customers. The intraclass correlation coefficient was between 0. The Acumed Anatomic Radial Head Solutions expands the comprehensiveness of the Anatomic Radial Head System by adding long stems, bringing the head and stem combinations to The Acumed Anatomic Radial Head System includes the first anatomically shaped radial head prosthesis introduced to the orthopaedic industry.

The solution also replaced broaches with reamers for canal preparation.

The plate design, coupled with the instruments in the Elbow Plating System, provide multiple fixation options for a variety of fracture patterns. Long screws in the Lateral Column Plate are designed to interdigitate with screws from the Medial Column Plate, providing a parallel construct for the stabilization of distal humerus fractures.

Enhancements to the previous system include precontoured Posterolateral Plates, left and right specific Olecranon Plates, and Hexalobe Screws. This fixation is maximized when the screws in the articular fragments interdigitate with the screws from the Acumed Lateral Column Plate on the lateral side.

Materials and Methods 40 human elbows mean age, 68 years; range, years were measured by 2 independent observers using slice computed tomography scans and 3-dimensional measuring software. The Acumed Posterolateral Plates are specifically designed for isolated capitellar fractures and for surgeons who prefer a 90 degree degree plate application. Conclusion The proximal ulna has a gender-specific and variable morphology.

The purposes of this study were to investigate the morphology of the proximal ulna and to compare morphologic findings with geometry of 4 preshaped ulna plates. Acumed Posterolateral Plates offer a solution for isolated capitellar fractures and for surgeons who prefer a plate application.

Designed to offer fixation and compression of fractures of the distal humerus by extending down distally, or wrapping around, the medial epicondyle and extending up the condylar ridge.
