ACUMED DISTAL RADIUS PLATE PDF

A two-part cannulated compression screw for dorsal comminution that gives surgeons the option for steadfast dorsal compression through a small dorsal incision. Optimized design to closely replicate the anatomical contours of the distal radius and assist in restoring its natural geometry. The Acumed Acu-Loc 2 Plating System is a next-generation solution in plating fixation that focuses on complete implant options and a streamlined surgical process. This comprehensive system includes several plate families to give surgeons the freedom to choose between distal or proximal sitting plates, three different plate extension options and fragment specific plating options. 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].

The Acumed Acu-Loc 2 Plating System is a next-generation solution in plating fixation that focuses on complete implant options and a streamlined surgical process. This comprehensive system includes several plate families to give surgeons the freedom to choose between distal or proximal sitting plates, three different plate extension options and fragment specific plating options.

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]. This screw system was designed to immobilize the dorsal bone fragment of distal radius fracture using a palmar locking plate. Herein, we evaluate the radiographic and clinical outcomes of surgery using Frag-Loc compression screw with palmar locking plate fixation for distal radius fractures that include a displaced dorsoulnar fragment.

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. The effects of the frag-loc compression screw on distal radius fracture with a displaced dorsoulnar fragment. Arch Orthop Trauma Surg.

A distal ulna excision had previously been performed for ulnocarpal impaction The distal screw row is designed for subchondral support, while the two styloid screws target the radial column. The ulnar corner of the plate offers suture holes for addressing small volar fragments.

A patented, two-part cannulated compression screw is designed to compress dorsal fragments. Innovative instrumentation includes a targeting guide with radiopaque markings that allow visualization of anticipated screw trajectories. Kickstand posts are offered for distal first reduction and corrective osteotomy procedures. Offer surgeons the option to extend any of the long and wide Volar Distal Radius Proximal Plates up to mm.

The Divergent Radial Styloid Plate buttresses the radial column. Targeted distal screw placement is designed to provide subchondral bone support, with one screw targeting the dorsal rim of the sigmoid notch and the other targeting the volar rim. In addition, fixed-angle screw trajectories are designed to avoid the sigmoid fossa, minimizing penetration of the distal radioulnar joint.

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.

The Dorsal Lunate Plate can be inserted through a smaller incision than a standard dorsal approach. For added stability, three plate screws are designed to target the subchondral bone and support the lunate facet. The Dorsal Rim Buttress Plate , designed for distal radius fractures, is positioned on the dorsal ulnar side of the radius.

The plate extends radially to support dorsal lip comminution and buttress dorsal fragments. Three screws are designed to target the subchondral bone and support the lunate facet, while a screw can be inserted ulnar-to-radial for further radial styloid support. The Volar Lunate Suture Plate supports the volar ulnar corner of the distal radius. Built-in suture holes allow for sutures to be used with the plate to capture small articular fragments.

Distal plate placement may maximize volar ulnar lip support, while three screws target the subchondral bone to support the lunate facet. Acumed Acu-Loc 2 Standard Volar Distal Radius Plates have an optimized design to closely replicate the anatomical contours of the distal radius and assist in restoring its natural geometry. Other optimized features include a lower profile, polished finish which may help minimize soft tissue irritation, and converging ulnar screws, additional suture holes, and added K-wire holes for provisional fixation.

Customizable plate length and width options allow for sizing of varying patient anatomies. In addition, converging ulnar screws, suture holes, and K-wire holes have been incorporated to support the volar ulnar lip and lunate facet.

The 2. The proximal plate end is tapered and the undersurface is designed for limited contact with the bone. The Frag-Loc Compression Screw is a two-part cannulated compression screw for dorsal comminution that gives surgeons the option for steadfast dorsal compression through a small dorsal incision. In addition, the undersurface geometry of the screw head allows for sub-osseous purchase into the dorsal fragment while designed for minimizing hardware prominence.

Acumed Variable Angle Locking Screws can aid in the capture of specific fragments or accommodate variations in patient anatomy. The screws allow for a total variance of 5 mm or 15 degrees.

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.

Patients and Methods This retrospective comparative study enrolled 48 patients who had an unstable distal radius fracture and a dorsoulnar fragment that was more than 2 mm displaced and that had involvement of more than one-quarter of the articular surface. Twenty-six of the 48 patients were treated with a palmar locking plate without a Frag-Loc compression screw group 1 and the other 22 patients were treated with palmar locking plate with a Frag-Loc compression screw to fix the dorsoulnar fragment group 2.

First, we reviewed all pre-surgical computerized tomographic CT scans. Second, we used the gap distance between the dorsoulnar and palmar fragment as seen on post-surgical axial and sagittal CT scans to determine outcome. The gap distance was measured at the point of maximum distance perpendicular to the plane of the main fracture line. Clinical outcomes were evaluated based on the patient-rated wrist evaluation PRWE score; the disabilities of the arm, shoulder and hand score; wrist active range of motion; and grip strength.

Results There were no statistically significant differences in clinical outcome between the two groups. However, there were statistically significant differences in post-surgical gap distance. The mean post-surgical gap distances for group 1 were 1. 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. 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.

Nathan Edwin Lesley, MD uses the Acumed Acu-Loc 2 Wrist Plating System to treat a year-old female who presented with a chronic malunion of the distal radius from a fracture treated nonoperatively five years earlier. Fracture Support The distal screw row is designed for subchondral support, while the two styloid screws target the radial column.

Acu-Loc 2 Volar Distal Radius Surgical Technique

Designed to provide a more distal fit than many other volar plates, the Acu-Loc VDR Plate offers an innovative solution for complex intra-articular distal radius fractures and osteotomies. 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. These anatomically contoured plates with precise screw positioning are designed to create a strong and stable construct to help restore the natural anatomy of the wrist bones. An animated version of the suggested method for implanting the Acu-Loc Targeted Distal Radius Plate, designed to treat acute fractures, nonunions and malunions of the distal radius.
