Acu-Loc Extra-Articular EX Plates
  • Locking Variable Angle Screw Design
    Locking Variable Angle screws are provided to aid in the capture of specific fragments or to accommodate variations in patient anatomy.
  • Advanced Radiolucent Targeting Guide
    The guide allows surgeons to drill, measure, and insert screws without having to remove the guide, possibly reducing surgery time.

The Acumed Acu-Loc Extra-Articular Plate is designed for extra-articular distal radius fractures and osteotomies. The plate sits more proximally than the standard Acu-Loc Volar Distal Radius Plate, and its distal locking screws are angled to support the dorsal lip of the radius, maximizing purchase in the subchondral bone. The 2.3 mm Variable Locking Screws can also be used in the distal holes of this plate family.

Component of This System

Variable Angle Screw

Acumed Variable Angle Locking Screws can aid in the capture of specific fragments or accommodate variations in patient anatomy. They can be used in any distal hole of any of the gold colored Acu-Loc 2 Proximal VDR Plates or Acu-Loc Extra Articular (EX) Plates. The screws allow for a total variance of 5 mm or 15 degrees.
