Acumed offers two plate types for the radius, including volar and dorsolateral approach options.
Acumed | Acu-Loc 2 Volar Distal Radius Plating System
Herein, we evaluate the radiographic distao clinical outcomes of surgery using Frag-Loc compression screw with palmar locking plate fixation for distal radius fractures that include a displaced dorsoulnar fragment.
For added stability, three plate screws are designed to target the subchondral bone and support the lunate facet. This five-plate system features both innovative and traditional designs.

A limited-contact design may ease compression of the periosteum to minimize the decrease in blood supply to the healing zone.
A simple transverse fracture was then made at the apex of this bow in 23 cadaver arms. In addition, the undersurface geometry of the screw head allows for sub-osseous purchase into the dorsal fragment while designed for minimizing hardware prominence. The plate extends radially to support dorsal lip comminution and buttress dorsal fragments. Scumed Hand Fracture System.
Rupasinghe S, Poon P. Innovative instrumentation includes a swiveling plate clamp, an angled drill guide, and a soft tissue spreader to aid in plate implantation.
Acu-Loc Wrist Plating System
In addition, plate positioning and converging screw angulation target distal fragments of the ulnar head and neck for more stable fracture fixation. In addition, fixed-angle screw trajectories are designed to avoid the sigmoid fossa, minimizing penetration of the distal radioulnar joint. The system features clamps, retractors, and soft tissue protectors, as well as drivers, radus, and targeting assemblies. Locking Anterior Clavicle Plates Manufacturer: Patented radiopaque markers in the PEEK targeting guides assist with plate placement.
The system can be used to treat fractures, fusions, and osteotomies of ditsal radius and ulna. The Frag-Loc Compression Screw was ideal for this type of fracture that is classified as unstable. Two Contoured Radius Plate Options Acumed offers two plate types for the radius, including volar and dorsolateral approach options. The Dorsal Lunate Plate is designed to provide support to fracture patterns that involve the dorsal lunate facet of the distal radius and the sigmoid notch.
Email Updates Yes, please send me updates by email. Keep up to date Plaate to our newsletter. The Acumed Anatomic Midshaft Forearm Plating System offers marked hardware improvements over traditional straight plates. The system also includes instrumentation for plate placement and rxdius management.
This temporary fixator is designed to hold the wrist in distraction and provide ligamentotaxis to the wrist while the distal radius heals. The system includes extension plates where fixation of long segments is required, and complementary distal radius fragment specific plates. A distal ulna excision had previously been performed for ulnocarpal impaction Acumed Anatomic Midshaft Forearm Plates offer features not found in traditional straight plates. Acu-Loc 2 Wrist Plating System.
Low-profile Design Screws sit flush with the plate, which may minimize postoperative soft tissue irritation and patient discomfort.
To address a wide range of fractures, fusions, and osteotomies, the Acumed Acu-Loc Wrist Plating System offers four families of anatomically contoured titanium plates designed to create a strong and stable construct to help restore the natural anatomy of the wrist bones.
The mean post-surgical gap distances for group 1 were 1. A two-part cannulated compression screw for dorsal comminution that gives surgeons the option for steadfast dorsal compression through a small dorsal incision. User-friendly Instrumentation Innovative instrumentation, including a customized plate clamp, angled drill guide, and soft tissue spreader are intended to simplify plate installation.
Total Wrist Fusion Plating System. The Frag-Loc Compression Screw is a two-part cannulated compression screw for dorsal comminution that gives surgeons the distak for steadfast dorsal compression through a small dorsal incision.
To address the complications of a wide range of wrist fractures, fusions, and osteotomies, the Acumed Acu-Loc Wrist Plating System offers four titanium plate families. This study looks at radial morphology and the effect of plating the proximal radius with straight plates and then contoured plates bowed in the sagittal plane. Radius morphology and its effects on rotation with contoured and noncontoured plating of the proximal radius. However, hardware-related extensor tendon irritation, weak fixation power of the dorsal screw, and technical difficulties are major limitations of dorsal plate fixation [8—10].
Standard Volar Distal Radius Plates. Plating this with contoured plates in the sagittal plane improves rotation when compared with straight plates. We ask that our members register with us so that we can maintain rdaius unbiased and independent nature of our content.

From our distal radius fracture system, to our innovative small bone fixation and distraction units, each system has been designed to provide ease of application, stability, and fracture reduction. Journal Abstract Purpose The purpose of this study is to evaluate the radiographic and clinical outcomes of the Frag-Loc compression screw with palmar plate fixation on distal radius fractures that include a displaced dorsoulnar fragment.
Similar Devices of 8. The Acumed Total Wrist Fusion Plating System acjmed designed for wrist arthrodesis due to deformities associated with degenerative arthritis, brachial plexus palsies, and spastic disorders. Precontoured plates may act as templates to restore forearm geometry, decrease surgery time in comparison to non-precontoured plates, and re-establish pronation and supination.
The Acumed Modular Hand System offers a variety of straightforward fracture and fusion solutions designed to address osteoarthritis, carpal instability, revision of failed partial wrist fusions, and rheumatoid arthritis. A patented, two-part cannulated compression screw is designed to compress dorsal fragments.
This result suggests that the Frag-Loc compression screw is an effective and simple treatment option to immobilize a dorsoulnar fragment associated with distal radius fracture.
Conclusion This study shows that the Frag-Loc compression screw can reduce the gap distance between the dorsoulnar fragment and the distal radius, according to evaluation of post-surgical axial and sagittal CT scans.
