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. Journal Abstract Background Anatomically preshaped plates are increasingly used for stabilization of comminuted olecranon and Monteggia fractures.

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. The Acumed system was the first elbow plating system to offer precontoured, parallel distal humerus plates. The plate design, coupled with the instruments in the Elbow Plating System, provide multiple acujed options for a variety of fracture patterns.

Elbow Plating System

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. Olecranon Plate Provide fixation for both fractures and osteotomies in the proximal ulna. 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.

The Acumed Posterolateral Plates are 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.

Olecranon-specific plates with proximal extensions are widely thought to offer superior fixation of small proximal fragments but have distinct disadvantages: Designed to offer fixation and compression plae fractures of the distal humerus by extending down distally, or wrapping around, the medial epicondyle and extending up the olecrranon ridge.

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. Industry First The first-to-market comprehensive, precontoured elbow plating system. Coronoid Plate Family These plates are designed to act as a buttress to the coronoid and help counteract the tendency of the ilecranon to subluxate.

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

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

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

Designed to provide an anatomic fit, the plates contour proximally and along the shaft. Olecranon Plate The screw trajectory is designed to allow screws to capture fracture fragments and avoid other screws regardless of the acuemd length selected.

The intraclass correlation coefficient was between 0. Some currently used anatomically preshaped proximal ulna plates differ significantly from these morphologic findings. The ulnae were cyclically loaded and subsequently loaded to failure, with ultimate load, number of cycles, and gap formation recorded.

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

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.

Results Measurements showed a mean dorsal hook angle of Specifically designed for isolated capitellar fractures and for surgeons who prefer a 90 degree degree plate application. 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.

Three-Dimensional Morphometry of the Proximal Ulna: The Acumed Olecranon Plates provide fixation for both fractures and osteotomies in the proximal ulna. Journal Abstract Objective Small olecranon fractures present a significant challenge for fixation, which has resulted in development of plates with proximal extension.

The screw trajectory is designed to allow screws to capture fracture fragments and avoid other screws regardless of the screw length selected. 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.
