The Orthopaedic Implant Company released its Proximal Humerus Plate today, completing its high value solution for upper extremity fractures. The plate’s design addresses two key challenges specific to proximal humerus fractures; prevention of subacromial impingement and varus collapse of the humeral head. Additionally, suture holes allow surgeons to place sutures addressing tuberosity repairs post humeral-head fixation.
OIC’s Proximal Humerus, Distal Radius and Clavicle Plates are supported by a single set of instrumentation and screws. The modularity of the set reinforces physicians’ familiarity and comfort with the instrumentation, while providing facilities with a simple approach to set management for a broad spectrum of cases.
The system provides lag screw fixation for comminuted patterns, non-locking screws to obtain compression across simple patterns and locking fixation in osteopenic bone and multi-fragmentary fracture patterns.
“The response to our high value upper extremity plates has been overwhelmingly positive,” says Itai Nemovicher, OIC President and CEO. “We are proud to offer our customers the ability to now save on proximal humerus plates as well.” The OIC Anatomic Locking Plate and Screw Line will continually expand in the coming months.
