The Acumed Ankle Plating System 3 is designed to provide a variety of fixation options for simple fractures of the distal tibia and fibula. Seven indication-specific plate families address fracture patterns of the medial, lateral, and posterior malleoli. Two of these plate families specifically address posterior malleolus fractures, as recent literature suggests an increase in open reduction and internal fixation of posterior malleolus fractures. Additionally, One-Third Tubular Plates, as well as L-shaped, T-shaped, and straight Fragment Plates are included within the Acumed Small Fragment Base Set, which is paired with the Ankle Plating System 3 to provide comprehensive solutions for ankle fractures. Coupled together, these systems not only provide eleven plate family options, but also multiple screw and pin options including 4.0 mm fully threaded and partially threaded cancellous hexalobe screws, Tension Band Pins, and AcuTwist Compression Screws. 4.0 mm cannulated screws in lengths of 36 mm, 42 mm and 48 mm are included in the tray for the treatment of medial malleolar fractures. This wide array of fracture-fixation devices provides a variety of surgical treatment options for ankle fractures, streamlining the surgical experience.
