Forearm Rod System
Acumed’s Forearm Rod System offers unique features for the rotational stabilization and fixation of a variety of diaphyseal forearm fractures in minimally invasive procedures.
Flexible fluted rods are inserted through a small incision with minimal canal reaming. A targeted interlocking screw and blade tip secure bone segments to promote fracture union and rotational stability.
- Both-bone forearm fractures.
- Comminuted diaphyseal fractures.
- Segmental fractures.
- Fixation for fractures above or below an existing plate.
- Revisions (existing hardware failure).
- Concerns about excess scarring.
- High-contact sports athletes.
- Patients unable to tolerate highly invasive procedures.
- Rotational stability: The fluted rod’s blade tip engages the metaphysis and the rod interlocks with 3.5mm bicortical screws. Anatomically contoured rods closely match the geometry of radial and ulnar canals for easy insertion.
- Minimally invasive: Reduced scarring and anesthesia time make forearm rodding an excellent option for elderly patients and patients with both-bone fractures and polytrauma.
- Straightforward application: Calibrated drill and drill guide, radiolucent targeting jig and canal reamers for templating length and appropriate rod diameter translate to reduced OR time and reduced costs.
- Sizes: Radius Rods (190mm – 230mm, 3.0mm and 3.6mm diameter); Ulna Rods (210mm – 270mm, 3.0mm and 3.6mm diameter).
