The Acumed Medial Column Plates are designed to offer fixation and compression of fractures of the distal humerus by extending down distally, or wrapping around, the medial epicondyle and extending up the condylar ridge. This fixation is maximized when the screws in the articular fragments interdigitate with the screws from the Acumed Lateral Column Plate on the lateral side.
The Acumed Elbow Plating System has revolutionized the way orthopaedic surgeons treat and manage elbow fractures. This system offers multiple fixation options for fractures of the distal humerus, olecranon, and coronoid, and osteotomies of the olecranon, in order to address a variety of patient anatomies.
