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.

Explore Elbow Plating System. 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.

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.

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. 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.

Conclusion The proximal ulna has a gender-specific and variable morphology. Olecranon Plate The screw trajectory is designed to allow screws to capture fracture fragments and avoid other screws regardless of the screw length selected.

Sysfem Acumed Anatomic Radial Head System includes the first anatomically shaped radial head prosthesis introduced to the orthopaedic industry. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the biomechanical utility of the extended plate for treatment of olecranon fractures. Posterolateral Plates Specifically designed for isolated capitellar fractures and for surgeons who prefer a 90 degree degree plate application. The Systme system was the first elbow plating system to offer precontoured, parallel distal humerus plates.

An interlocking solution designed to provide low-profile, secure fixation for olecranon fractures or osteotomies without K-wire irritation or postoperative pin migration. The Acumed Posterolateral Plates are specifically designed for isolated capitellar fractures and for surgeons who prefer a 90 degree degree plate application.

Journal Abstract Background Anatomically preshaped plates are increasingly used for stabilization of comminuted olecranon and Monteggia fractures. Coronoid Plate Designed for fractures of the anteromedial facet of the coronoid. Explore Radial Head Plating System.

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 Lateral Column Plate 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.

Medial Column Plate Designed to offer fixation and compression of fractures of the distal humerus by extending down distally, or wrapping around, the medial elblw and extending up the condylar ridge. The plate design, coupled with the instruments in the Elbow Plating System, provide multiple fixation options for a variety of fracture patterns.

Some currently used anatomically preshaped proximal ulna plates differ significantly from these morphologic findings. Product Overview The Acumed Elbow Plating System offers multiple fixation options for fractures of the distal humerus, olecranon, and coronoid, as well as osteotomies of the olecranon. Enhancements to the previous system include precontoured Posterolateral Plates, left and right specific Olecranon Plates, and Hexalobe Screws. Journal Abstract Objective Small olecranon fractures present a significant challenge for fixation, which has resulted in development of plates with proximal extension.

Radial Head Plating System A straightforward solution for treating fractures when the radial head is salvageable. Olecranon Plate Provide fixation for both fractures and osteotomies in the proximal ulna. The system offers standard head and stem combinations, offering multiple options for varying patient anatomies. From Simple to Complex.

The Acumed Medial Column Plates are 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. However, this recommendation must be tempered with clinical judgment, particularly with comminuted and non-transverse fractures, where there may be continued utility for the extended plate or suture augmentation to increase the stability of the construct.
