Results Measurements showed a mean dorsal hook angle of 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.

Email Updates Yes, please send me updates by email. 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. 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.

Lateral Column Plate The Lateral Column Plates improve upon the biomechanics of posterior plating by enabling longer screws in olecfanon articular fragments to interdigitate with the screws from the medial side. 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 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.

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

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.

Previous biomechanical studies of olecranon fracture fixation have compared methods of fracture fixation, but to date there have been no studies defining olecranon acu,ed fixation strength for standard versus extended olecranon plates. 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.

Methods Sixteen matched pairs of fresh-frozen human cadaveric elbows were used. 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.

The plate design, coupled olectanon the instruments in the Elbow Plating System, provide multiple fixation options for a variety of fracture patterns. Olecranon Plate Provide fixation for both fractures and osteotomies in the proximal ulna. 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.

J Shoulder Elbow Surg. 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.

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

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 intraclass correlation coefficient was between 0. 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. Posterolateral Plates Specifically designed for isolated capitellar fractures and for surgeons who prefer a 90 degree degree plate application.

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

The Acumed Posterolateral Plates are specifically designed for isolated capitellar fractures and for surgeons who prefer a 90 degree degree plate application. When used in conjunction with Acumed Medial Column Plates, the construct acts as a template for complex fractures of the distal humerus.

Biomechanical evaluation of standard versus extended proximal fixation olecranon plates for fixation of olecranon fractures. Olecranon-specific plates with proximal extensions olecrann widely thought to offer superior fixation of small proximal fragments but have distinct disadvantages: Three-Dimensional Morphometry of the Proximal Ulna: Designed to provide an anatomic fit, the plates contour proximally and along the shaft.

These plates are designed to act as a buttress to the coronoid and help 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. Journal Abstract Objective Small olecranon fractures present a significant challenge for fixation, which has resulted in development of plates with proximal extension.
