Acumed Polarus Humeral Rod System
  • Polarus Screw\Cap
    This cap, used in conjunction with the Polarus Humeral Rod, is designed to minimize the screw from backing out and prohibit bony ingrowth.
  • Fracture Stability
    Low-profile, locking screws feature deep, cancellous triple-lead threads which can be beneficial for securing the soft bone of the humeral head and engaging the rod and lock smoothly.
  • Tapered Profile
    The tapered rod ends are designed to ease insertion and may mitigate stress concentrations reducing the potential of a peri-prosthetic fracture.
  • Calibrated Drills
    The drills ensure proper screw sizing and eliminate extra surgical steps.
  • Accurate Targeting
    A wire insertion device, laser marks on the guide wire, and a radiolucent X-ray template may assist the surgeon in pinpointing screw location and ensuring the rod is buried to the appropriate depth.

The Polarus Humeral Rod System is designed to provide fixation for 2-, 3-, and some 4-part fractures of the proximal humerus through a minimally invasive surgical technique. The Polarus Locking Humeral Rod and Polarus Plus Humeral Rod are cannulated intramedullary humeral rods that feature a tapered profile with a spiral array of proximal screws designed to target the best quality bone. Multi-planar fixation acts as a scaffold, aiding in fracture reduction and realignment. One of the additional values of intramedullary rodding compared to competing technologies is its percutaneous approach, designed to minimize soft tissue disruption and support periosteum healing.

  • Acumed Polarus 3 Solution

    Designed to provide multiple solutions for fractures, fusions, and osteotomies of the humerus, the Polarus 3 Solution provides plate and nail options in one comprehensive system. The system includes a Posterior Plate for capturing posterior greater tuberosity fragments as well as a Standard Plate for less complex fractures. Nail options include both a Proximal and Distal Nail depending on fracture patterns. The system also features the simplicity of using the same 4.3 mm screws for both implants for a more straightforward approach.

  • Acumed Polarus Plus Humeral Rod - 260mm

    The Acumed Polarus Plus Humeral Rod is designed to provide fixation for 2-, 3-, and some 4- part fractures of the proximal humerus through a minimally-invasive surgical procedure. Multi-planar fixation may help to restore the proper anatomic alignment of the humerus through a percutaneous approach. A patented spiral array of locking screws offers optimal solutions for a variety of fracture patterns. The innovative targeting guide system provides visibility to confirm precise rod and screw placement, and helps ensure the rod is buried to the appropriate depth. 

  • Acumed Polarus Modular Shoulder System

    The Acumed Polarus Modular Shoulder System is designed to address the challenges and complications associated with shoulder arthroplasty. Designed as a hemiarthroplasty solution specifically for fractures, the implants aim to provide an anatomic solution while the instrumentation addresses the difficulty of accurate implant positioning.
