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

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

The intraclass correlation coefficient was between 0. 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. Industry First The first-to-market comprehensive, precontoured elbow plating system. Olecranon-specific plates with proximal extensions are widely thought to offer superior fixation of small proximal fragments but have distinct disadvantages: The Acumed Medial Column Plates are designed to offer fixation and compression of fractures of adumed distal humerus by extending down distally, or wrapping around, the medial epicondyle and extending up the condylar ridge.

The plate design, coupled with the instruments in the Elbow Plating System, provide multiple fixation options for a variety of plaate patterns. Email Updates Yes, please send me updates by email. Lateral Column Plate The Lateral Column Plates improve upon the olceranon of posterior plating by enabling longer screws in the articular fragments to interdigitate with the ;late from the medial side. 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.

Posterolateral Plates Specifically designed for isolated capitellar fractures and for surgeons who prefer a 90 degree degree plate application. Biomechanical evaluation of standard versus extended proximal fixation olecranon plates for fixation of olecranon fractures.

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 olecrqnon subluxation of the radial head on the capitellum.

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

Coronoid Plate Designed for fractures of the anteromedial facet of the coronoid. 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.

Elbow Plating System

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

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. 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.

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

The ulnae were cyclically loaded and subsequently loaded to failure, with ultimate load, number of cycles, and gap formation recorded. A precontoured acumex in both the diaphyseal region of olecranno 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.

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 was the first elbow plating system to offer precontoured, parallel distal humerus plates. Olecranon Plate Acumwd screw trajectory is designed to allow screws to capture fracture fragments and avoid other screws regardless of the screw length selected.

The Acumed Olecranon Plates provide fixation for both fractures and osteotomies in the proximal ulna. 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. Specifically designed for isolated capitellar fractures and olecfanon surgeons who prefer a 90 degree degree plate application.

The screw trajectory is designed to allow screws to capture fracture fragments and avoid other screws regardless of the screw length selected. These plates are designed to act as a buttress to the coronoid and help counteract the tendency of the elbow to subluxate.

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

Designed to offer fixation and compression of fractures of the distal humerus by extending down distally, or wrapping olrcranon, the medial epicondyle and extending up the condylar ridge. 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.

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

J Shoulder Elbow Surg. Designed to provide an anatomic fit, the plates contour proximally and along the shaft. Olecranon Plate Provide fixation for both fractures and osteotomies in the proximal ulna.
