Acute Innovations has developed U-shaped plate technology to provide stability with anterior and posterior locking screws while avoiding the neurovascular bundle. The RibLoc system does not rely on the rib cortex alone for fixation; instead, the screw locks into the anterior and posterior aspects of the plate and rib to provide added stability1. Using this technology, the U Plus system provides a solution for rib fracture repair that is stable, efficient, versatile, and customizable to each patient and situation. The low-profile instrumentation of U Plus 90 facilitates fixation of subscapular, posterior, and anterolateral fractures through minimally invasive approaches.   1.
