2.0 mm LCP Distal Ulna Plate

Division: Trauma
Category: Plates and Screws

The distal ulna is an essential component of the distal radioulnar joint, which helps provide rotation to the forearm. The distal ulnar surface is also an important platform for stability of the carpus and the hand.

Unstable fractures of the distal ulna therefore threaten both movement and stability of the wrist. The size and shape of the distal ulna, combined with the overlying mobile soft tissues, make application of standard implants difficult. The 2.0 mm LCP Distal Ulna Plate is specifically designed for use in fractures of the distal ulna.

Indications for Use

The 2.0 mm LCP Distal Ulna Plate is indicated for fixation of fractures, osteotomies, nonunions, replantations, and fusions of small bones and small bone fragments, particularly in osteopenic bone.
