Acu-Loc Volar Distal Radius VDR Plate
  • Distal Screws
    Distal screws are angled forward six degrees from the plate and are designed to maximize purchase in the subchondral bone to increase pull-out strength.
  • Fixed-angle Screws
    Fixed-angle screws are designed to target the densest subchondral bone in the radial and intermediate columns of the distal radius.
  • Anatomic Design
    The anatomic curvature of the plate is designed to facilitate the restoration of the bone’s natural geometry.

The Acumed Acu-Loc Volar Distal Radius (VDR) Plate has been a market leader since 2004. Designed to provide a more distal fit than many other volar plates, the Acu-Loc Volar Distal Radius (VDR) Plate offers an innovative solution for complex intra-articular distal radius fractures and osteotomies. The Acu-Loc instrumentation supplies surgeons with everything necessary to implant all of the distal radius and volar distal ulna plates. The system features clamps, retractors, and soft tissue protectors, as well as drivers, drills, and targeting assemblies.

  • Acu-Loc Wrist Plating System

    To address the complications of a wide range of wrist fractures, fusions, and osteotomies, the Acumed Acu-Loc Wrist Plating System offers four titanium plate families. These anatomically contoured plates with precise screw positioning are designed to create a strong and stable construct to help restore the natural anatomy of the wrist bones.

Case Study: Distal Radius Fracture

Edward Reece, M.D., M.S., uses the Acumed Acu-Loc Volar Distal Radius (VDR) Plate and Frag-Loc Compression Screw to repair a Frykman IV, Melone class 1 closed distal radius fracture with three intra-articular components in an 85-year-old fall victim.
