  • Non-union or Malunion Correction : Corrects non-union or malunion of distal humerus fractures by securely stabilizing the bone fragments.

  • Revision Surgeries : Used in revision surgeries to address failed previous fixations or complications in distal humerus fractures.

  • Trauma Cases : Suitable for traumatic injuries involving the distal humerus, offering dependable fixation to restore function and stability.

  • Orthopedic Reconstruction : Integral in orthopedic reconstruction procedures aiming to restore the integrity and function of the elbow joint.
Product Specification
  • Size Options : Available in 2.7 mm and 3.5 mm thickness options to accommodate different bone densities and fracture patterns.

  • Material : Available in 2.7 mm and 3.5 mm thickness options to accommodate different bone densities and fracture patterns.

  • Anatomical Design : Features an anatomically contoured shape to match the distal humerus anatomy, minimizing soft tissue irritation and optimizing bone contact for enhanced stability.

  • Screw Holes : Multiple screw holes along the plate allow for versatile screw placement, enabling customized fixation based on fracture patterns and bone quality.

  • Locking Mechanism : Incorporates locking screw technology for enhanced stability and angular stability, reducing the risk of screw loosening or backing out.

Distal Humerus Plate (VALP)- 2.7 / 3.5 Medial Sizes

  • Patient Evaluation : Review the patient's medical history, perform a physical examination, and assess imaging studies (X-rays, CT scans) to evaluate the distal humerus fracture.

  • Surgical Planning : Analyze the fracture pattern and determine the appropriate size of the 2.7 / 3.5 Distal Humerus Medial Plate - VALP, as well as the number and placement of screws required for fixation.

  • Informed Consent : Discuss the surgical procedure, potential risks, benefits, and alternatives with the patient, ensuring informed consent.

  • Pre-operative Optimization : Optimize the patient's medical condition, including managing comorbidities, adjusting medications, and addressing any nutritional deficiencies.

  • Antibiotic Prophylaxis : Administer prophylactic antibiotics according to institutional guidelines to reduce the risk of surgical site infection.

  • Skin Preparation : Cleanse the surgical site with antiseptic solution to minimize the risk of contamination.

  • Anesthesia : Collaborate with the anesthesia team to determine the appropriate anesthesia technique for the patient.
  • Patient Positioning : Position the patient supine or in a lateral decubitus position, with the affected arm on a hand table or arm board.

  • Incision : Make an appropriate incision over the distal humerus to expose the fracture site while preserving soft tissue integrity.

  • Fracture Reduction : Carefully manipulate the fracture fragments into proper alignment using bone clamps, reduction forceps, or other reduction techniques.

  • Plate Placement : Select the correct size and shape of the 2.7 / 3.5 Distal Humerus Medial Plate - VALP and position it on the medial aspect of the distal humerus.

  • Screw Fixation : Secure the plate to the bone using locking or non-locking screws, ensuring adequate fixation and stability.

  • Wound Closure : Close the incision in layers, ensuring hemostasis and meticulous closure of the subcutaneous and skin layers.

  • Dressing Application : Apply a sterile dressing over the surgical site to protect the wound and minimize the risk of infection.
  • Pain Management : Provide appropriate pain relief to ensure patient comfort.

  • Early Mobilization : Encourage early mobilization and range of motion exercises under the guidance of a physiotherapist.

  • Wound Care : Instruct the patient on proper wound care, including keeping the incision site clean and dry, and monitoring for signs of infection.

  • Follow-up : Schedule follow-up appointments to monitor the patient's progress, assess healing, and remove sutures or staples as necessary.

  • Rehabilitation : Implement a comprehensive rehabilitation program focused on restoring strength, mobility, and function of the elbow joint.

  • Activity Restrictions : Advise the patient on activity restrictions to prevent implant failure or complications.
