Designed to Perform

The APTUS Radial Head Plates 2.0 provide two plate options for treatment of complex multifragment fractures of the radial head. The Radial Head Rim Plate is designed to fix complex and/or comminuted fractures of the radial head requiring subchondral support. The Radial Head Buttress Plate is designed to fix osteotomies and fractures in the neck region of the radial head, particularly impacted fractures requiring buttressing. This plate shape allows a combination with isolated headless compression screws (CCS) outside the plate for additional subchondral support. Due to their anatomical fit, low plate profile and the ease of bending, the plates may help to reduce soft tissue irritations compared to other systems. [1]

Products

TriLock Radial Head Rim Plate 2.0

Highlights

  • Positioning close to the rim of the joint surface of the radial head and underneath the annular ligament

  • Plate geometry allows for subchondral screw positioning

  • Anatomical design facilitates reduction of fragments to the plate

  • Grid structure of the plate with offset screw positioning provides rotational stability

Features
