Coronoid rupture fractures are
observed at a rate of 5% to 10%; Rare fractures usually associated with elbow dislocations or fracture-dislocations. These
fractures typically result from the shear force the coronoid is exposed on the
distal humerus as the elbow protrudes into the posterior.
Coronoid Anatomic Locking Plate is designed to stabilize coronoid fractures and deformities. It is indicated for fractures on the anteromedial side of the coronoid. It acts as a support for the coronoid and counteracts the tendency of the elbow to subluxation (partial distance of the joint surfaces).
The plate can be used with Ø2.7mm, Ø3.5mm and Ø4.0mm locking cortical or cancellous screws according to the surgeon's preference.
It is anatomically shaped. It is designed to minimize soft tissue irritation.
