Acu-Loc 2 Volar Distal Radius Plate Surgical Technique Overview Animation
The standard Acu-Loc 2 Volar Distal Radius Plate is designed to closely replicate the anatomical contours of the distal radius and may assist in restoring the original geometry. In this animation, the surgical steps for installation of a standard volar distal radius plate are overviewed incorporating the 2.7 mm Low-Profile Hexalobe Screw.
Acu-Loc 2 Volar Distal Radius Plate and Volar Tilt Correction Cadaveric Surgery with Dr. Ruch
The Acu-Loc 2 Wrist Plating System offers various plate families and screw technologies to treat multiple fracture patterns of the distal radius and distal ulna regions. In this cadaveric surgery, Dr. Ruch, examines methods for approach, dissection, plate placement, and use of the Acu-Loc 2 KickStand Posts, designed to correct distal radius volar tilt.
Acu-Loc 2 Frag-Loc Compression Screw Surgical Technique Overview Animation
The Frag-Loc Compression Screw is a two-part cannulated compression screw for dorsal comminution that gives surgeons the option for steadfast dorsal compression through a small dorsal incision. In this animation, steps for implantation of the Frag-Loc Compression Screw are overviewed.
