Implants trauma Ulna Osteotomy Locking Plate

 Open the catalogue to page 1

All ITS plates are preformed anatomically as a matter of principle. If adjustment of the plate to the shape of the bone is required, this is possible by carefully bending gently in one direction once. Particular care is required when bending in the region of a plate hole, as deformation of the plate may lead to a failure of the locking mechanism. The plate must not be buckled or bent several times. This is particularly important in the case of titanium implants, to prevent material fatigue and subsequent failure. The method of bending is the conscious responsibility of the operating doctor; I.T.S....

Preface The Ulna Osteotomy Locking Plate provides a plate system (hybrid system) to be fixated with locking screws and compression screws, which is specially adapted to the anatomic and biomechanic requirements after a shortening osteotomy of the distal ulna. In a single device, the Ulna Osteotomy Locking Plate allows for a unique coplanar orientation of the incision with rotation-stable shortening and the option for compression. The standardization of multiple surgical procedures into a single device system improves the quality of the surgical procedure.

Pre-operative patient preparation Place the patient in a supine position, cover the arm to be freely mobile and place it on an X-ray transparent table at a shoulder abduction of 90°. Perform the operation under regional or general anaesthesia with or without using a tourniquet on the upper arm. The shape of the implant allows for palmar, ulnar or dorsal positioning of the plate. The plate should be completely fitted to the bone without protruding. As the the distal palmar section of the ulna is usually curved, more proximal positioning of the plate or pre-bending of the implant are recommended....

Plate insertion After opening the forearm fascia, mobilize bluntly the belly of the FCU (M. flexor carpi ulnaris) at its insertion point at the ulna and retract it medial using Hohmann retractors. Define the optimal position of the plate and incise the dorsal forearm fascia in the designated osteotomy area.

Placement of the tension bolts Place the assembled osteotomy system jig upon the ulna osteotomy plate, which is attached to the ulna using the plate holes alternating from the outside centrer; distally with D=3.0mm locking cancellous screws (37302-XX) or D=3.0mm locking cortical screws (37301-XX) (spiral drill, D=2.0mm, L=100mm, AO Connector (61203-100) for locking cancellous screw / spiral drill, D=2.4mm, L=100mm, AO Connector (61243-100) for locking cortical screw), proximally with 2 tension bolts (680859) after inserting the drill guide, D=2.0mm (62208) for the tension bolt and a D=2.0mm bore...

Shortening Incise the periosteum at the osteotomy site and minimally retract it before starting. Using the transection gauge and producing as little heat as possible, make two atraumatic, parallel cuts according to the measured shortening. The maximum recommended osteotomy length is 6mm. Caution: In osteoporotic bones, traction bolts may tilt due to high traction forces (malformation of drilled holes in osteoporotic bone). The thickness of the saw blade is a maximum of 0.7mm. We recommend a saw blade 0.5 – 0.7mm in thickness, to achieve a precise cut.

Reduction After removal of the dissection, the osteotomy surfaces must be cleaned meticulously of bone or soft tissue remnants. After loosening the tension bolts (1/2 to 3/4 turn), shortening is performed using the set screw. If there are excessive tensions and shortening difficulties, this is usually the consequence of bone or soft tissue remnants. After contact of the osteotomy surfaces, prior to a desired compression, the reduction may additionally be secured using holding forceps. Finally, tighten the tension bolts firmly.
