Stability Redefined

The APTUS Clavicle system provides surgeons with a versatile and anatomical solution to treat midshaft and distal fractures, osteotomies, malunions and non-unions of the clavicle. The system includes for superior and anterior clavicle plating. A flexible suture retrieval and fixation system can be added to the superior lateral plates to address affected CC ligaments. The efficient and user-oriented system is backed up with easy to use instrumentation and innovative features to live up to its attention to stability.

Flaps

Plate slot to hold an insert for either a cortical screw or suture fixation. ​​

Two flaps for screws from anterior to posterior to increase stability.​​

Dimples

Dimples on plate surface – plate can be easily held in position with pointed forceps.

Drill Guide Blocks

Drill guide blocks for superior lateral plates – rapid and easy insertion of screws in a predefined angle.​​

TriLockPLUS

TriLockPLUS screw holes offer the advantage of compression and angular stable locking in one step.​​

Fracture Location

Clavicle fractures are common injuries, accounting for up to 10% of all fractures in adults. They often result from direct impact to the shoulder. Shaft fractures are the most frequent clavicle fractures followed by lateral and medial fractures. CC joint injuries are often associated with lateral clavicle fractures. [1] The Medartis APTUS Clavicle System 2.8 takes this into account, providing a portfolio designed to cover a variety of fracture positions. All plates have an anatomic plate design with a low overall profile height and specific design features, such as CC suture fixation directly through the lateral superior plates.

Clavicle Superior Midshaft Plates

Highlights

  • Anatomical fit developed based on CT data

  • 8-hole plates in three bend variations. Straightforward anatomical fit on variously shaped bones with reduced need for plate bending

Features

Anterior Midshaft Plates

Highlights

  • Symmetrical plate design based on CT data

  • Low plate profile with minimal screw head protrusion, rounded edges and a smooth surface

  • Chamfered and narrowed plate ends with preangled screw holes

Features

Clavicle Superior Lateral Plate

Highlights

  • Two flaps for screws from anterior to posterior allow for screw placement in two planes and increase the possibilities to address fragments

  • Multiple screw holes and increased pull-out strength in the lateral area for various fracture patterns

  • Plate slot to hold an insert offers the possibility to fix a suture through the plate or alternatively to place a cortical screw

  • The optional drill guide block facilitates rapid and accurate screw insertion at a predefined angle

Features

Clavicle Anterior Lateral Plates

Highlights

  • Chamfered and narrowed plate ends with preangled screw holes

  • Designed for less invasive plate placement and fixation method

  • Low plate profile with minimal screw head protrusion, rounded edges and a smooth surface for soft tissue protection

Features

Clavicle Superior Lateral Shaft Plate

Highlights

  • Specific anatomical fit offers the possibility to position the plate laterally, but away from the AC joint

  • Multiple options for screw placement to increase pull-out strength in the lateral area

  • Narrowed lateral plate end with reduced plate thickness

  • Preangled screw hole in the medial plate end

Design to Simplify

Technological Milestones in Osteosynthesis

TriLock

Multidirectional and angular stable locking, screws can pivot freely by ± 15° in all directions

TriLockPLUS

TriLockPLUS screw holes offer the advantage of locking and compression in one step

HexaDrive

Simplified screw pick-up thanks to self-holding system

Designed to Organize

Due to only one screw size used the system is user-friendly and efficient. The simple and easy to use instruments include finely adjusted ratcheting on the reduction instruments.

  • Compact system
  • Easy to use 
  • Lightweight components 
  • Validated cleaning and sterilization of the implants
