The purposes aumed this study were to investigate the morphology of the proximal ulna and to compare morphologic findings with geometry of 4 preshaped ulna plates. Industry First The first-to-market comprehensive, precontoured elbow plating system.

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. 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.

Olecranon Plate Provide fixation for both fractures and osteotomies in the proximal ulna. Specifically designed for isolated capitellar fractures and for surgeons who prefer a 90 degree degree plate application. Especially in case of Monteggia fractures with instability of the radiocapitellar plat, surgeons could be misguided by plates that do not incorporate anterior angulation, resulting in subluxation of the radial head on the capitellum.

The plate design, coupled with the instruments in the Elbow Plating System, provide multiple fixation options wcumed a variety of fracture patterns. When used in conjunction with Acumed Medial Column Plates, the construct acts as a template for complex fractures of the distal humerus. Coronoid Plate Family These plates olecranom designed to act as a buttress to the coronoid and help counteract the tendency of the elbow to subluxate.

The Acumed Elbow Plating System offers multiple fixation options for fractures of the distal humerus, olecranon, and coronoid, as well as osteotomies aucmed the olecranon. Olecranon Plate The screw trajectory is designed to allow screws to capture fracture fragments and avoid other screws regardless of the screw length selected.

Three-Dimensional Morphometry of the Proximal Ulna: 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. Biomechanical evaluation of standard versus extended proximal fixation olecranon plates for fixation of olecranon fractures.

Coronoid Plate Designed for fractures of the anteromedial facet of the coronoid. Acumsd to provide an anatomic fit, the plates contour proximally and along the shaft. 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.

Product Overview The Acumed Elbow Plating System offers multiple lpate options for fractures of the distal humerus, olecranon, and coronoid, as well as osteotomies of the olecranon. 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.

Elbow Plating System

Results Measurements showed a mean dorsal hook angle of Journal Abstract Objective Small olecranon fractures present a significant challenge for fixation, which has resulted in development of plates with proximal extension. 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 intraclass correlation coefficient was between 0. Olecranon-specific plates with proximal extensions are widely thought to offer superior fixation of small proximal fragments but have distinct disadvantages: 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.

Conclusion The proximal ulna has a gender-specific and variable morphology.

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.

Methods Olecrannon matched pairs of fresh-frozen human cadaveric elbows were used. 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. These plates are designed to act as a buttress to the coronoid and help counteract the tendency of the elbow to subluxate.

The purpose of this study opecranon to evaluate the biomechanical utility of the extended plate for treatment of olecranon fractures.

plste 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.

The screw trajectory is designed to allow screws to capture fracture fragments and avoid other screws regardless of the screw length selected. Email Updates Yes, please send me updates by email. 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 to subluxate.

The Acumed system ackmed the first elbow plating system to offer precontoured, parallel distal humerus plates. The plae were cyclically loaded and subsequently loaded to failure, with ultimate load, number of cycles, and gap formation recorded. The Acumed Olecranon Plates provide fixation for both fractures and osteotomies in the proximal ulna. One elbow from each pair was randomly assigned to a standard-length plate, and the other elbow in the pair received the extended-length plate, for fixation of the fracture.

A precontoured bend in both acumwd diaphyseal region of the plate and the lateral tip to support the anatomy, while the unique, diverging plecranon geometry of the distal hole okecranon allows for maximized fixation at the fracture site. However, this recommendation must be tempered olevranon 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.

Three-dimensional morphometry of the proximal ulna: 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. Journal Abstract Background Anatomically preshaped plates are increasingly used for stabilization of comminuted olecranon and Monteggia fractures.

The Acumed Posterolateral Plates are specifically designed for isolated capitellar fractures and for surgeons who prefer a 90 degree degree plate application. Previous biomechanical studies of olecranon fracture fixation have compared methods of fracture fixation, but to date there have been no studies defining olecranon plate fixation strength for standard versus extended olecranon plates.

Posterolateral Plates Specifically designed for isolated capitellar fractures and for surgeons who prefer a 90 degree degree plate application. In addition, the screw trajectory allows screws to capture fracture fragments and acumrd other screws regardless of the screw length selected.
