Diaphysary fractures of the Humerus
Multi-fragmentary fractures of the diaphysary humerus
Fixation devices implanted in periprosthetic bone often have a high incidence of mobilisation caused by several factors; among the most frequent is the technical difficulty in stabilising the fracture due to the presence of the rod, which prevents easy positioning of the screws.
Secondly, the quality of the bone, which is often porotic, can facilitate “pull-out” of the screws, resulting in early breakdown of the fracture.
Intrauma has developed a range of plates especially for the treatment of periprosthetic fractures of the humerus.
The use of the O’nil periprosthetic plate guarantees early mobilisation of the patient and union of the fracture in a time frame comparable to a fracture without a prosthesis.
Thanks to the patented conical locking system between the screw head and the holes in the plate, the O’nil fixator guarantees primary stability by distributing the forces evenly over the entire plate.
