• TriLock – variable angle of ± 15° in all directions in each screw hole*
  • TriLockPLUS screw holes combine compression and angular stability in one step
  • Rounded edges and a smooth surface for soft tissue protection
  • Oblong hole for variable positioning of the plate
  • K-wire holes to assist with temporary plate fixation
  • Buttressing of the RCJ and DRUJ due to the possibility of converging screw placement
  • Anatomically pre-contoured plate design in the shaft and distal area available in three different lengths
  • Offset screw holes in the shaft avoid screw collisions

* Exception: oblong hole


  • Stable fixation with a variable plate profile in the shaft of 3.2 mm to 1.8 mm distally
  • Two-row screw arrangement in the distal area for subchondral support


Purple: APTUS 2.5

APTUS® Wrist

The wrist is a multi-articular joint. It consists of the carpus, distal ulna and distal radius. Fractures of the distal radius are the most common fractures in the human body. In recent years, great changes have taken place both in the treatment options of the distal radius and the patient demands which have increased. As socioeconomic factors have become more relevant, a perfect anatomic reconstruction and a permanent reduction have been targeted together with virtually no postoperative immobilization and very early rehabilitation.

With the APTUS Distal Radius System 2.5 Medartis offers a multidirectional and angular stable product line with implant plates in different designs, lengths and widths for a volar, dorsal and/or lateral approach. The APTUS Distal Radius System 2.5 plates with TriLock technology are anatomically adapted for an optimal stabilization of distal radius fractures and correction osteotomies as well as for arthrodesis.
