  • Revision surgery : Used in revision surgeries to address failed previous fixations or complications in olecranon fractures.

  • Trauma Cases : Suitable for traumatic injuries involving the olecranon, 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 : Available in 2.7 mm and 3.5 mm thickness options to accommodate varying patient anatomies and surgical needs.

  • Material : Constructed from high-quality medical-grade stainless steel or titanium alloy for durability, biocompatibility, and corrosion resistance.

  • Design : Features a low-profile, anatomically contoured plate design to minimize soft tissue irritation and optimize 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.

  • Compatibility : Compatible with standard orthopedic instruments and techniques, facilitating seamless integration into existing surgical protocols.

Elbow Plate (VALP)- 2.7 / 3.5 Olecranon Sizes

  • Patient Evaluation : Review the patient's medical history, conduct a physical examination, and order relevant imaging studies (X-rays, CT scans) to assess the olecranon fracture.

  • Surgical Planning : Analyze the fracture pattern and determine the appropriate size of the 2.7 / 3.5 Olecranon 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.
  • 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 a longitudinal or curvilinear incision overlying the olecranon, exposing the fracture site while preserving soft tissue integrity.

  • Fracture Reduction : Carefully mobilize the fracture fragments and achieve anatomical reduction using manual manipulation, bone clamps, or reduction forceps.

  • Plate Placement : Select the appropriate size of the 2.7 / 3.5 Olecranon Plate - VALP and position it over the dorsal aspect of the olecranon, ensuring proper alignment with the bone.

  • Screw Fixation : Secure the plate to the olecranon using locking or non-locking screws, ensuring adequate purchase in the bone while avoiding joint penetration.

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

  • Pain Management : Provide adequate pain relief using multimodal analgesia to ensure patient comfort.

  • Early Mobilization : Encourage early mobilization and range of motion exercises of the elbow joint 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, including limitations on heavy lifting and strenuous activities, to prevent implant failure or complications.
