Proximal Humerus Plate - 2.7 / 3.5 mm GT (ASLP)

Product Overview

The 2.7 / 3.5 mm Proximal Humerus GT Plate (ASLP) is a cutting-edge orthopedic implant designed to provide reliable fixation and stability in proximal humerus fractures. Engineered with advanced materials and precision manufacturing, this plate offers surgeons a versatile solution for addressing complex fractures with confidence. Its anatomical design and variable locking options ensure optimal adaptation to bone morphology, promoting enhanced healing and patient recovery. The ASLP plate's low-profile construct minimizes soft tissue irritation while maintaining robust mechanical strength, supporting early mobilization and functional rehabilitation.

Product Uses
  • Proximal Humerus Fractures : This plate is specifically designed to provide stable fixation for fractures of the proximal humerus, including complex fractures and fractures involving the surgical neck.

  • Osteoporotic Bone : It is effective in cases where bone quality is compromised due to osteoporosis, providing secure fixation despite reduced bone density.

  • Non-union or Malunion : Used to address non-union (failed healing) or malunion (improper healing) of proximal humerus fractures, restoring stability and promoting proper bone healing.

  • Reconstructive Surgery : Utilized in reconstructive surgeries of the proximal humerus, such as after tumor resections or deformity corrections, to restore bone alignment and function.

  • Orthopedic Trauma : Applied in trauma cases involving high-energy injuries to the proximal humerus, ensuring reliable fixation and facilitating early mobilization and recovery.

  • Geriatric Fractures : Suitable for fractures in elderly patients, where stable fixation is crucial for maintaining mobility and reducing complications associated with prolonged immobilization.
Product Specification
  • Plate Size Options : Available in 2.7 mm and 3.5 mm widths.

  • Material : Typically made from high-grade stainless steel or titanium alloy for strength and biocompatibility.

  • Design : Anatomically contoured to fit the proximal humerus, enhancing stability and reducing soft tissue irritation.

  • Locking Mechanism : Offers variable locking options to accommodate different surgical techniques and bone conditions.

  • Surface Finish : Smooth or textured surface to promote osseointegration and minimize the risk of implant-related complications.

  • Holes and Slots : Multiple holes and slots for screw placement, allowing for precise fixation and alignment.

  • Profile : Low-profile design to minimize prominence and reduce soft tissue irritation.

  • Indications : Designed for proximal humerus fractures, including complex fractures, osteoporotic bone, non-union, malunion, and reconstructive surgeries.

Proximal Humerus Plate - 2.7 / 3.5 mm GT (ASLP) Sizes

  • Patient Evaluation : Conduct a thorough medical history review and physical examination.Assess the patient's bone quality and overall health to determine candidacy for surgery.

  • Imaging : Perform imaging studies such as X-rays, CT scans, or MRI to assess the extent of the injury or condition requiring the implant.Ensure precise measurements of the proximal humerus anatomy to select the appropriate size and placement of the implant.

  • Preparation :Inform the patient about the procedure, expected outcomes, and potential risks.Provide pre-operative instructions regarding fasting, medications, and any specific preparations.

  • Surgical Planning : Prepare the operating room with necessary equipment, implants, and instrumentation specific to the 2.7 / 3.5 mm Proximal Humerus GT Plate (ASLP). Plan the surgical approach and technique based on imaging and patient-specific factors.

  • Anesthesia : Administer appropriate anesthesia (general or regional) based on patient and surgeon preference.

  • Surgical Approach : Access the proximal humerus through an appropriate surgical approach (e.g., deltopectoral, anterolateral, or other approaches).Carefully dissect tissues to expose the proximal humerus and prepare the fracture or defect site.

  • Implant Placement : Position and secure the 2.7 / 3.5 mm Proximal Humerus GT Plate (ASLP) on the proximal humerus using screws or other fixation devices.Ensure proper alignment and stability of the implant to facilitate fracture healing or joint stability.

  • Closure : Close the surgical incision layers carefully, ensuring hemostasis and tissue approximation.Apply appropriate dressings or wound closure techniques.

  • Post-Operative Imaging : Confirm the placement and alignment of the implant with post-operative X-rays or other imaging modalities.
  • Recovery and Monitoring : Transfer the patient to a recovery area and monitor vital signs and post-operative pain.Initiate early mobilization protocols as appropriate.

  • Post-Operative Care : Provide instructions for wound care, activity limitations, and rehabilitation exercises.Prescribe medications for pain management and infection prevention as needed.

  • Follow-up : Schedule follow-up visits to monitor healing progress and functional recovery.Evaluate implant stability and patient satisfaction with the surgical outcome.

  • Rehabilitation : Initiate physical therapy and rehabilitation programs tailored to the patient's needs.Focus on restoring range of motion, strength, and functional independence.

  • Complications Monitoring : Educate the patient about potential complications such as infection, implant failure, or nerve injury.Monitor for signs of complications during follow-up visits and intervene promptly if necessary.
