The Total Wrist Fusion Plating System was designed for wrist arthrodesis due to deformities associated with degenerative arthritis, brachial plexus palsies, and spastic disorders. This five plate system features both innovative and traditional designs.
• Approach-Specific Plate Options
• The system offers left and right specific plates as well as a neutral plate. All plates have a 15-degree bend that is intended to maximize grip strength.
• Second Metacarpal
The system includes four plates designed specifically for second metacarpal placement to avoid flexor tendons.
• Ulnar Deviation
Second metacarpal plate placement puts the wrist into ulnar deviation. This is intended to allow better grip strength.
• Converging Screw Design
The plates’ converging distal screw design is intended to assist with pullout resistance.
• Neutral Plate Option
The Neutral Plate was designed to be used with a proximal row carpectomy.
