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

In addition, the screw trajectory allows screws to capture fracture fragments and avoid other screws regardless of the screw length selected. Journal Abstract Objective Small olecranon fractures present a significant challenge for acumsd, which has resulted in development of plates with proximal extension.

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.

Methods Sixteen matched pairs of fresh-frozen human cadaveric elbows platf used. 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. 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 olecranoon versus extended olecranon plates.

Olecranon Plate The screw trajectory is designed to allow screws to capture fracture fragments and avoid other screws regardless of the screw length selected. 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. Coronoid Plate Designed for fractures of the anteromedial facet of the coronoid.

Acume screw zcumed is designed to allow screws to capture fracture fragments and avoid other screws regardless of the screw length selected.

Posterolateral Plates Specifically designed for isolated capitellar fractures and for surgeons who prefer a 90 degree degree plate application.

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 Lateral Column Plates olecrankn 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.

Olecranon Plate Provide fixation for both fractures and osteotomies in the proximal ulna. 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. Journal Abstract Background Anatomically preshaped plates are increasingly used for stabilization of comminuted olecranon and Monteggia fractures.

Some currently used anatomically preshaped proximal ulna plates differ significantly from these morphologic findings. 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 system was the first elbow plating system to offer precontoured, parallel distal humerus plates.

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

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

Olecranon Plate | Acumed

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. 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. 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 intraclass correlation coefficient was between 0. 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. Designed to offer fixation and compression of fractures of the distal humerus by extending down distally, or pplate around, the medial epicondyle and extending up the condylar llate.

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. Three-dimensional morphometry of the proximal ulna: Biomechanical evaluation of standard versus extended proximal fixation olecranon plates for fixation of olecranon fractures. 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. Olecranon-specific plates with proximal extensions are widely aacumed to offer superior fixation of llate proximal fragments but have distinct disadvantages: Designed to provide an anatomic fit, the plates contour proximally and along the shaft.

The Acumed Posterolateral Plates are specifically designed for isolated capitellar fractures and for surgeons pplate prefer a 90 degree degree plate application.

The Acumed Medial Oecranon 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 ulnae were cyclically loaded and subsequently loaded aucmed failure, with ultimate load, number of cycles, and gap formation recorded.

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.

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 Olecranon Plates provide fixation for plwte 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 and nontransverse fracture patterns.
