The Volar Bearing plate is part of the Total Wrist Fixation System from TriMed. This system also includes the unique fragment specific options, wedge screws as well as a volar fixed angle plate.
The variable angle screws gives the surgeon the flexibility to place distal screws within a wide range of insertion angles and then lock each peg into the desired position. The gives the possibility to get fixation matched to the specific anatomy and with a technique that is easier. A distal screw can be inserted but not locked before reduction of volar tilt is obtained. The fracture can be manually reduced and the screw locked into position.
The unique wedge screws are available in 4 and 6mm and they provide set volar angulation depending on which proximal screw hole is utilized.
