Distal humerus fractures make up 2% of all fractures and approximately one third of humerus fractures.
Distal Humerus Lateral Anatomic Locking Plate is designed to stabilize fractures and deformities occurring in the lateral part of the humeral distal.
It has 2 types, right and left, and has 5 different hole numbers from 6 to 14. The plate can be used with Ø2.7mm, Ø3.5mm and Ø4.0mm locking cortical or cancellous screws according to the surgeon's preference.
The plate has an anatomical shape and profile. Thanks to the pre-shaped plates, the bending process of the surgeon to match the patient's anatomy during the surgery is eliminated.
It allows axial compression thanks to its combi holes, while thanks to the kirschner wire holes, the plate can be temporarily fixed to the humerus, fractures can be reduced and the position of the plate relative to the bone can be adjusted.
