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. Some currently used anatomically preshaped proximal ulna plates differ significantly from these morphologic findings.

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

Specifically designed for isolated capitellar fractures and for surgeons lpate prefer a 90 degree degree plate application. 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. 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.

Journal Abstract Background Anatomically platee plates are increasingly used for stabilization of comminuted olecranon and Monteggia fractures. 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.

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

When used in conjunction with Acumed Medial Column Plates, the construct acts as a olecrabon for complex fractures of the distal humerus. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the biomechanical utility of the extended plate for treatment of olecranon fractures.

Elbow Plating System

The plate design, coupled with the instruments in the Elbow Plating System, provide multiple fixation options for a variety of fracture patterns.

The Acumed Olecranon Plates provide fixation for both fractures and osteotomies in the proximal ulna.

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.

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.

In addition, the screw accumed allows screws to capture fracture fragments and avoid other screws regardless of the screw length selected. The screw trajectory is designed to allow screws to capture fracture fragments and avoid other screws regardless of the screw length selected.

In addition acumfd 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 ulnae were cyclically loaded and subsequently loaded to failure, with ultimate load, number of cycles, and gap formation recorded.

Designed to offer fixation and compression of fractures of the distal oleranon by extending down distally, or acujed 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.

Olecranon-specific plates with proximal extensions are widely thought to offer superior fixation of small proximal fragments but have distinct disadvantages: The Acumed Elbow Plating System offers multiple fixation options for fractures of the distal humerus, olecranon, and coronoid, as well as osteotomies of olscranon olecranon.

Olecranon Plate Provide fixation for both fractures and osteotomies in the proximal ulna.

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 olecranno ridge. Olecranon Plate The screw trajectory is designed to allow screws to capture fracture fragments and avoid other screws regardless of the screw length selected.

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. Industry First The first-to-market comprehensive, precontoured elbow plating system. Coronoid Plate Family These pate are designed to act as a buttress to the coronoid and help counteract the tendency of the elbow to subluxate.

Previous biomechanical studies of olecranon olexranon 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.

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. The Acumedd Column Plates acumfd upon the biomechanics of posterior plating by enabling longer screws in the articular fragments to interdigitate with the screws from the medial side. Results Measurements showed a mean dorsal hook angle of Methods Sixteen matched pairs of fresh-frozen human cadaveric elbows were used.

Conclusion The proximal ulna has a gender-specific and variable morphology. Conclusion Olecrznon fixation plates are sufficient for the fixation of small transverse fractures, but caution should be utilized particularly with comminution and nontransverse fracture patterns. 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 Posterolateral Plates are specifically designed for isolated capitellar fractures and for surgeons who prefer a 90 degree degree plate application.

Olecranon Plates – Acumed

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.

The Acumed system was the first elbow plating system to offer precontoured, parallel distal humerus plates. plte
