Osteotomy System
  • Osteotomy Guide
    This cutting guide offers continuous adjustment from 1 mm to 10 mm, allowing a resection of the amount desired.
  • Built-in Osteotomy Reference Guide
    Measurement lines — in 2 mm increments — reference the amount of shortening desired.
  • Advanced Instrumentation
    The reduction clamp’s speed-lock wheel is designed to allow hands-free compression and the multipurpose temporary reduction peg stabilizes the ulna to maintain rotational alignment while creating the osteotomy.

The Acumed Osteotomy System features the Ulnar Shortening Plate, with built-in osteotomy reference lines and a cutting guide. The system offers screws that sit below the plate surface when fully seated, and the interfragmentary lag screw can be placed in one of two locations to securely compress the osteotomy.

The Ulnar Shortening Plate is indicated for use in osteotomies of the ulna.  The osteotomies may be done for Ulnar Impaction Syndrome due to ulnar-positive variance, DRUJ incongruity due to shortening of the radius, and traumatic and degenerative tears of the TFCC associated with positive ulnar variance.
