The complex anatomical features of the distal humerus and of the elbow articulation require advanced fracture plates, morphologically suitable for a successfully osteosynthesis in this region. Intrauma has developed a wide range of internal fixators for the distal humerus, including various shapes and anatomically pre-shaped and supporting the lateral and medial humeral epiphyses.
Suitable for poly-fragment fractures, O’Nil plates are also indicated for the treatment of elderly patients with poor bone quality: the lack of pressure on the bone and the limited invasiveness help to preserve the vascularisation of the periosteum. The unique locking mechanism also ensures fracture stability whilst avoiding pressure on the bone, preserving vascularity and accelerating the return of the patient’s previous mobility and function.
