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.
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 a Long Nail.
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.
