Acumed offers the Total Wrist Fusion Plating System for wrist arthrodesis due to deformities associated with degenerative arthritis, brachial plexus palsies, and spastic disorders. This five plate system features both innovative and traditional designs. Specifically, four of the five plates are positioned on the second metacarpal. These left and right specific designs are positioned on the second metacarpal which may reduce extensor tendon irritation. Additionally, the fifth plate is a neutral option that is placed on the third metacarpal and developed for use with a proximal row carpectomy. All plates have a 15° dorsal bend, established as a balance between anatomic resting position, hand function, and grip strength. Our Hexalobe MultiScrew technology allows for the same screw to be placed in both a locking hole and a nonlocking slot, eliminating the need for traditional locking and nonlocking screws. This, combined with a range of instrumentation designed to assist the surgery, creates a comprehensive standalone system for total wrist fusions.
