About this product

Division: Trauma
Category: Plating Systems

The VA-LCP™ Elbow Plating System signals the start of a new era in the treatment of elbow fractures. The development of the new system is founded upon the established principles of LCP technology, inspired by the success of the first generation anatomically precontoured elbow plates, and focused on improving patient care.

  • Further reduce the risk of soft tissue irritation by taking into account the poor soft tissue coverage of the elbow, thereby improving the plate profile, optimizing the anatomical plate contours and enabling the screw heads to sit flush in the plate hole.
  • Offer simplicity and adaptability. Variable angle locking technology combines the simplicity of the established LCP screw insertion technique with the possibility of adapting screw angulations. Safety is enhanced during screw insertion by offering optimized predefined screw angles while allowing +/-15° off-axis angulation, if needed.
  • Respond to the specifics of proximal ulna fractures by recognizing the particular biomechanical requirements of each fracture type and therefore offering specific implants with optimized shapes and screw configurations.
  • Provide multiple distal humerus plate configurations, including parallel and perpendicular plating, thereby allowing surgeons to choose their preferred solution.
 

Intended Use

For full information on indications, contraindications, warnings and precautions please see the product specific IFU and surgical techniques VA-LCP™ Distal Humerus Plates (036.001.366) and VA-LCP™ Olecranon Plates (036.001.367).

 

 

Features & Benefits

 

Features Benefits
Fracture-specific proximal ulna plates Enable the surgeon to address the specific biomechanical requirements of each fracture pattern while minimizing irritations of the adjacent soft tissue.
Variable angle locking technology Variable angle locking screws 2.7 mm give the surgeon the ability to create a fixed-angle construct with the freedom of up to 15° off-axis screw angulation.
Plate configurations Three main double-plating configurations for the distal humerus: perpendicular, perpendicular with lateral support, and parallel.
Plate design Optimized metaphyseal plate profile, together with rounded edges and an improved anatomical plate fit minimize the prominence of the construct without compromising stability.

 

Features Benefits
VA-LCP™ Distal Humerus Plates Offer multiple screw configurations for the medial and lateral columns, and the articular block.
Further reduce the risk of soft tissue irritation Taking into account the poor soft tissue coverage of the elbow, thereby improving the plate profile, optimizing the anatomical plate contours and enabling the screw heads to sit flush in the plate hole.
