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.

Designed for fractures of the anteromedial facet of the coronoid, the Acumed Coronoid Plates are acumeed to act as a buttress to the coronoid and llate counteract the tendency of the elbow to subluxate. 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 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. When used in conjunction with Acumed Medial Column Plates, the construct acts as a template for complex fractures of the distal humerus. Email Updates Yes, please send me updates by email.

Olecranon Plates – Acumed

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. Biomechanical evaluation of standard versus extended proximal fixation olecranon plates acumfd fixation of olecranon fractures. Three-dimensional morphometry of the proximal ulna: These plates are designed to act as a buttress to the coronoid and help counteract the tendency of the elbow to subluxate.

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

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

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

Conclusion Standard fixation plates are sufficient for the fixation of small transverse fractures, but caution should be utilized particularly with comminution aacumed nontransverse fracture patterns. Medial Column Plate Designed to offer fixation oledranon compression of fractures of the distal humerus by extending down olectanon, or wrapping around, the medial epicondyle and extending up the condylar ridge.

The ulnae were cyclically loaded and subsequently loaded to failure, with ultimate load, number of cycles, and gap formation recorded. Some currently used anatomically preshaped proximal ulna plates differ significantly from these morphologic findings.

Acumer 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. The Acumed system was the first elbow plating system to offer precontoured, parallel distal humerus plates. Coronoid Plate Designed for fractures of the anteromedial facet of the coronoid. 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.

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 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. The Acumed Posterolateral Plates are specifically designed for isolated capitellar fractures and for surgeons who prefer a 90 degree degree plate application. Results Measurements showed a mean dorsal hook angle of One elbow from each pair was randomly assigned to olecraanon standard-length plate, and the other elbow in the pair received the extended-length plate, for fixation of the fracture.

Three-Dimensional Morphometry of the Proximal Ulna: The screw trajectory is designed to allow screws to capture fracture fragments and avoid other screws regardless of the screw length selected. J Shoulder Elbow Surg. Coronoid Plate Family These plates are designed to act as a buttress to the coronoid and help counteract the tendency of the elbow to subluxate.

Specifically designed for isolated capitellar fractures and for surgeons who prefer a 90 degree degree plate application. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the biomechanical utility of the extended plate for treatment of olecranon fractures. Click Here to Request More Information. Afumed biomechanical studies of olecranon platw fixation have compared methods of fracture fixation, but to date there olfcranon been no studies defining olecranon plate fixation strength for standard versus extended olecranon plates.

Conclusion The proximal ulna has a gender-specific acmued variable morphology. In addition, the screw trajectory allows screws to capture fracture fragments and avoid other screws regardless of the screw length selected. 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 olwcranon on the capitellum.

Elbow Plating System

Designed to provide an anatomic fit, the plates contour proximally and along the shaft. Olecranon Plate The screw trajectory is designed to allow screws to capture fracture fragments and avoid other screws regardless of the screw length selected. 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.

Methods Sixteen matched pairs of fresh-frozen human cadaveric elbows were used. Olecranon-specific plates with proximal extensions are widely thought to offer superior fixation of small proximal fragments but have distinct disadvantages: 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.

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.

Industry First The first-to-market comprehensive, precontoured elbow plating system.

The intraclass correlation coefficient was between 0. Posterolateral Plates 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.
