Radius head fractures
constitute 1.7-5.4% of all fractures and 33% of adult elbow fractures.
Proximal Radius Anatomic Locking Plate is designed to stabilize fractures and deformities occurring in the radius bone.
There are 2 types as 3 and 5 holes.
The plate can be used with Ø2.7mm, Ø3.5mm and Ø4.0mm locking cortical or cancellous screws in the shaft part according to the surgeon's preference. In the distal part, 2.3mm locking cortical screws are used.
The plate has an anatomical shape and profile.
It is designed to minimize soft tissue irritation. Thanks to the conical end of the plate, its placement on the bone is easier.
Combi holes allow axial compression. Thanks to the Kirschner wire holes, the plate can be temporarily fixed to the radius, broken pieces can be reduced and the position of the plate relative to the bone can be adjusted.
