distal radius

The information presented is intended for use as a demonstration for products contract manufactured by Orthomedic. The appropriate treatment, technique(s) and product(s) for each individual patient are to be determined by the treating surgeon.

Providing a comprehensive solution for distal radius fracture management.

Intended Use

The plate and screw implants included in the Locking Plate System are intended for temporary fixation, correction or stabilization in the radius anatomical region.

Features and Benefits

Locking Plate System eases the challenge of treating distal radius fractures by incorporating a low-profile, up-to-date and anatomic design with advanced fixation alternatives and streamlined instrumentation. A comprehensive offering of distal radius plates are available in large, small and wide head as well as multiple shaft lengths. A variety of screw fixation options allows for customization according to the surgeons’ needs and the complexity of the fracture.

All implants are available in stainless steel and titanium.

1

Oblong Hole

Aids in plate positioning on the bone by allowing placement of Cortex Screw 3.5 mm.
2

Bendable

The two columns permit independent fine contouring of the radial and intermediate columns.
3

Self-Tapping Screw

Self-tapping screws with blunt tips help to reduce the risk of tendon irritation and/or soft tissue disruption.
4

Anatomical Fit

The plates are anatomically contoured and may help to restore the bone’s natural anatomy from the distal ulnar side to the radial styloid.
5

Titanium Anodization

The screws are processed with Anodization, which gives colour, increases the strength of the surface of screws and may reduce the incidence of tissue adhesion. The distinctive colour makes the sizes and types of screws easily distinguishable.
6

Kirschner Wire Holes

Enable preliminary plate fixation. Act as a reference for screw trajectory and aid in optimal plate positioning.
7

Fixed Angle Locking Screw Holes with Pre-tilted “Lips”

The threads on the underside of each screw head are designed to engage the circular “lip” in each locking screw hole upon insertion and create a locked and stiff construct. This enhances insertion or removal characteristics even for demanding fracture patterns.
