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. 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.

Specifically designed for isolated capitellar fractures and for surgeons who prefer a 90 platinh degree plate application. 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. Long screws in the Lateral Column Shstem are designed to interdigitate with screws from the Medial Column Plate, providing a parallel construct for the stabilization e,bow 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. 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.

Results Measurements showed a mean dorsal hook angle of The intraclass correlation coefficient was between 0. Conclusion The proximal ulna has a gender-specific and variable morphology. Some currently used anatomically preshaped proximal ulna plates differ significantly from these morphologic findings.

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.

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: 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.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the biomechanical utility of the extended plate for treatment of olecranon fractures.

Methods Sixteen matched pairs of fresh-frozen human cadaveric elbows were used. 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 ulnae were cyclically loaded and subsequently loaded to failure, with ultimate load, number of cycles, and gap formation recorded. 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.

Biomechanical evaluation of standard versus extended proximal fixation olecranon plates for fixation of olecranon fractures. 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. The Acumed Olecranon Plates provide fixation for both fractures and osteotomies in the proximal ulna.

Designed to provide an anatomic fit, the plates contour proximally and along the shaft. In addition, the screw trajectory allows screws to capture fracture fragments and avoid other screws regardless of the screw length selected. 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 plate design, coupled with the instruments in the Elbow Plating System, provide multiple fixation options for a variety of fracture patterns. 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.

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

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. Coronoid Plate Designed for fractures of the anteromedial facet of the coronoid. Olecranon Plate Provide fixation for both fractures and osteotomies in the proximal ulna. 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.

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