APTUS® Elbow

The elbow is a complex joint with several articulating surfaces where the humerus, the radius and the ulna meet. Stability is achieved by a high number of ligaments and muscles attaching at the elbow. Fractures caused by direct or indirect trauma are quite frequent and often intra-articular. They may involve several bones and are frequently associated with ligamental injuries. In these cases, the restoration of the initial function of the articulation is very challenging.

Because the elbow has a strong tendency to stiffen after injury, early mobilisation is paramount. This can often only be achieved by open reduction and internal fixation. Medartis is developing a comprehensive range of plates, carefully matched to the complex anatomy of the elbow. These implants take advantage of Medartis' innovative TriLock technology providing multidirectional angular stability, which is beneficial for the treatment of intra-articular fractures of the elbow.
