Proximal Ulna Plate

Designed to effectively fix the proximal tip of the olecranon and prevent avulsion of the triceps insertion

Optimized home run screw trajectory

  1. Olecranon Fixation
  2. Home Run Screw
  3. Coronoid Fixation

PROXIMAL ULNA PLATE

Alternate constructs with multiple horizontal proximal screws

Suture anchor points incorporate triceps for added stability4

  1. Deepened Central Concavity: To accommodates PUDA and dorsal ulnar ridge
  2. Suture Holes: For soft tissue repair
  3. Single Home Run Tab: For preserving the triceps insertion
  4. Suture Anchor Points: Incorporate triceps for added stability4
