Small Distal Radius Plates (Volar)
Dorsally displaced fractures, intra or extra-articular fractures with metaphyseal defect, open joint reconstruction, combination of distal radius with carpal and metacarpal fractures, corrective osteotomies. Distal Radius Locking Volar Plates are indicated for fractures, osteotomies and nonunions of distal radius.
Thickness: 2.7 mm, Width: 10.0 mm, Distance between holes: 10.5 mm. Use 2.4 and 2.7 mm small screw in the distal portion of the plates. 2.4 and 2.7 mm peg screw can be used in any small locking hole. 3.5 mm cortex screw can be used only in the shaft of the plates.
Wide Distal Radius Plates are precontoured for anatomic fit on the volar aspect of the distal radius. Multiple locking screw holes in the head of the plate provide additional fixation of the radial and intermediate columns, with screw trajectories designed to address a wide variety of fracture types. Specifically, two screws are angled to capture the radial styloid and prevent rotation of these fragments.
The plate window offers fracture visualization as well as access to metaphyseal comminution.
The Two-Piece Cannulated Compression Screw is designed to reduce difficult dorsal fragments to the Distal Radius Volar Plates. A unique two-part cannulated screw works by providing compression to the dorsal fragments through a small dorsal incision. It is recommended that a second 2.4 mm screw be placed in an adjacent screw hole to prevent rotation of the dorsal bone fragment.
Distal radius extension plate is designed to lock to distal radius plates to provide rigid fixation of segmental fractures of the distal radius that extend into the diaphyseal region.
