Acumed Elbow Plating System Lateral Column Plate
  • Tap-Loc Technology
    Surgeons can choose the optimal locking screw trajectory—up to 20° in each direction — to maximize fixation in the distal fragments.
  • Variety
    The plates are available in a wide range of lengths so surgeons can optimize patient fit.
  • Size
    The plates are 11 mm in width and 2.0 mm at the thickest point. They are offered in both left-specific (blue) and right-specific (green). -Length range: 58 mm to 206 mm

The Acumed Lateral Column Plates improve upon the biomechanics of posterior plating by enabling longer screws in the articular fragments to interdigitate with the screws from the medial side. When used in conjunction with Acumed Medial Column Plates, the construct acts as a template for complex fractures of the distal humerus.
