indications for use
The ACUTE Innovations® RibLoc® U Plus Chest Wall Plating System is intended to stabilize and provide fixation for fractures, fusions, and osteotomies of the ribs, and for reconstructions of the chest wall.
Features & Benefits
Custom Fit to the Rib
Plate and screws fit a broad range of rib sizes and fracture patterns. The plates range in length from 50mm-215mm, which allows the surgeon to address a broad range of fracture patterns. The plate design offers a compressible U-clip for a perfect fit to a broad range of rib thicknesses (6mm-14mm).
2.7mm Dual-Threaded screws are provided in lengths from 6mm to 14mm, in 2mm increments and are color-coded for accurate and efficient installation.
Once the U-clips are compressed, screws lock anteriorly and posteriorly into the U-clip, creating a robust fixation that does not rely on bone quality alone.
They aid in fracture reduction once clamped onto the rib. This innovative instrument indicates the correct screw size and has a built in drill guide and stop.
Acts as a clamp for securing segmental fractures, maintain fracture reduction as well as a sizing tool for intermediate screw placement.
The two-sided Hand Bender is specifically designed to contour the U Plus plate to match the curvature of the rib. The teardrop features (1) are used for in-plane bending. The unique design allows for bending the plate without deforming the screw holes, as well as an angle approach to bend the plates in-situ. The roller features (2) are used for out-of-plane bending.
