Three-Dimensional Morphometry of the Proximal Ulna: Designed to provide an anatomic fit, the plates contour proximally and along the shaft. 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.

The Acumed Posterolateral Plates are specifically designed for isolated capitellar fractures and for surgeons who prefer a 90 degree degree plate application.
Specifically designed for isolated capitellar fractures and for surgeons who prefer a 90 degree degree plate application. 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 llating medial side. 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.
Explore Anatomic Radial Head Solutions. The Acumed Olecranon Plates provide fixation for both fractures and osteotomies in the proximal ulna. Methods Sixteen matched pairs of fresh-frozen human cadaveric elbows were used.
Industry First The first-to-market comprehensive, precontoured elbow plating system. The intraclass correlation coefficient was between 0. Explore Anatomic Radial Head System.
These plates are designed to act as a buttress to the coronoid and help counteract the tendency of the elbow to subluxate. A straightforward olating for treating fractures when the radial head is salvageable. The system offers standard head and stem combinations, offering multiple options for varying patient anatomies.
The Acumed Radial Head Plating System is intended for fracture fixation when the radial head is salvageable. Enhancements to the previous system include precontoured Posterolateral Plates, left and right specific Olecranon Plates, and Hexalobe Screws.
From Simple to Complex.
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 epicondyle and extending up the condylar ridge. Explore Radial Head Plating System. Three-dimensional morphometry of the proximal ulna: Designed for fractures of the anteromedial facet of the coronoid, the Acumed Coronoid Plates are intended to act as a buttress to the coronoid and help counteract the tendency of the elbow platting subluxate.
A precontoured bend in both the diaphyseal region of the plate and the lateral tip to support the anatomy, while the unique, diverging screw geometry of the distal hole cluster allows for maximized fixation at the fracture site.
The solution also replaced broaches with reamers for canal preparation.
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. Journal Abstract Objective Small olecranon fractures present a significant challenge for fixation, which has resulted in development of plates with proximal extension. Email Updates Yes, please send me updates by email.

The acuned were cyclically loaded and subsequently loaded to failure, with ultimate load, number of cycles, and gap formation recorded. The screw trajectory is designed to allow screws to capture fracture fragments and avoid other screws regardless of the screw length selected. In addition to citing existing scholarly papers, we conduct ongoing clinical research and use this information for validation and continuous improvement to deliver the greatest value to our customers.
Olecranon Plate Eystem fixation for both fractures and osteotomies in the proximal ulna.
When used in conjunction with Acumed Medial Column Plates, the construct acts as a template for complex fractures of the distal humerus. Ststem 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 Radial Head Plating System.

J Shoulder Elbow Surg. 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.
An interlocking solution designed to provide low-profile, secure fixation for olecranon fractures or osteotomies without K-wire irritation or postoperative pin migration.
Olecranon-specific plates with proximal extensions are widely thought to offer superior fixation of small proximal fragments but have distinct disadvantages: The first-to-market precontoured elbow plates are designed to provide multiple fixation options for fractures of the distal humerus, olecranon, and coronoid.
Some currently used anatomically preshaped proximal ulna plates differ significantly from these morphologic findings. The Acumed Anatomic Radial Head System includes the first anatomically lebow radial head prosthesis introduced to the orthopaedic industry.
Journal Acummed Background Anatomically preshaped plates are increasingly used for stabilization of comminuted platinv and Monteggia fractures.
