The Acumed Ankle Plating System 3 is designed to provide a variety of fixation options fractures of the distal tibia and fibula. Designed in conjunction with Anish Kadakia, MD and Bruce Ziran, MD, the Ankle Plating System 3 includes seven plate families designed specifically for the treatment of ankle fractures. The indication-specific plates address fracture patterns of the medial, lateral, and posterior malleoli. Specialized plate features and unique instrumentation address disruption of the syndesmosis. 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. The Ankle Plating System 3 is used in combination with the Acumed Small Fragment Base Set. The Small Fragment Base Set includes One-Third Tubular Plates, as well as cut-to-length and bend-to-fit 2.7 mm L-shaped, T-shaped, and straight Fragment Plates that can also be used to address ankle fractures. The 2.7 mm and 3.5 mm nonlocking, locking, and variable angle hexalobe screws, 4.0 mm fully threaded and partially threaded cancellous hexalobe screws, and universal instrumentation are all housed within the Small Fragment Base Set. Additionally, a selection of Tension Band Pins and AcuTwist® Compression Screws are also included.
Fibula Rod System
The Acumed® Fibula Rod System offers an alternative approach to traditional fibular plating by providing fracture stability with a minimally invasive surgical technique. Utilising a targeting guide, the fibula rod and interlocking screws can be inserted through small incisions, which may help minimise valuable surgery room time.
The Acumed® Ankle Plating System is designed to be a minimally invasive solution providing surgeons versatility in patient care for Anterior Tibia, Medial Malleolar, and Distal Fibular fractures. With Lateral Fibula, Distal Fibula, Medial Tibia, and Anterior Tibia Plate option that accepts both locking and non-locking screws.
