Designed to perform.

The Medartis Olecranon System 2.8 offers a range of plates with innovative fixation concepts that may help reduce soft tissue irritation and therefore reduce the rates of hardware removal surgeries. [1]

Fixation Options

The low profile 2.8 TriLock Olecranon Double Plates are designed to fix complex olecranon fractures without interfragmentary support. Their innovative lateral positioning allows for muscular soft-tissue coverage and an increased amount of screws to hold small proximal fragments. [2]

The 2.8 TriLock olecranon tension plate was developed as a replacement of the classic tension band wiring. The low-profile plate is very thin entailing limited hardware prominence [3] and can withstand tensile forces. It is indicated for fractures and osteotomies of the proximal ulna with interfragmentary support.

TriLock Olecranon Curved Double Plates 2.8

Highlights

  • Low plate profile and high rotational stability due to biomechanically favourable posterolateral and posteromedial plate position

  • Plates can be covered with soft tissue (anconeus muscle und flexor carpi ulnaris muscle), thereby reducing the occurrence of wound healing problems and the likelihood of hardware removal [1,2]

  • High number of screw options enables stable fixation particularly of small proximal fragments [2]

  • High primary stability due to screw position orthogonally to the direction of the pulling force of the triceps brachii muscle [2]

  • Easy bending to adapt to the individual anatomy of the patient

TriLock Olecranon Straight Double Plates 2.8

Highlights

  • Distal plate position spares the triceps tendon insertion

  • Low plate profile and high rotational stability due to biomechanically favourable posterolateral and posteromedial plate position

  • Plates can be covered with soft tissue (anconeus muscle und flexor carpi ulnaris muscle), thereby reducing the occurrence of wound healing problems and the likelihood of hardware removal [1,2]

TriLock Olecranon Tension Plate 2.8

Highlights

  • Developed as a replacement of the classic tension band wiring

  • The low-profile plate is very thin entailing limited hardware prominence [3] and can withstand tensile forces

  • Two cross-fracture lag screws provide primary compression and fixation [3]

  • Uniform and controlled compression of the fracture with lag screws allows for mobilization as early as possible [3]

  • Solid anchoring of the tension relief even in osteoporotic bone reduces the risk of fracture dislocation [3]
