A.L.P.S.® Hand Fracture System

Mimics the anatomy of small bones

1000x1000_insetimage_Trauma_ALPSHand
  • Anatomic, Low-profile Plate Design
  • TiMAX® Proprietary Surface Treatment designed for a Smooth, Uniform Surface
  • Three-dimensional Contouring and Flexible Sizing to Match the Complex Bone Surfaces
  • Multiple Screw Options for Locking, Non-locking, and Multidirectional Fixation

The A.L.P.S. ® Hand Fracture System combines low profile titanium plate metallurgy with multiplanar locking screw technology. The wide variety of plate shapes are designed to be contoured and sized intra-operatively to provide options for many fractures of the foot, from simple fractures to those with high levels of comminution and bone loss. The plates can be cut intraoperatively, aiming to allow custom sizing without increasing inventory.

The locking screws establish a fixed-angle construct designed for strong fixation or when optimal screw purchase is required. The multi-directional locking screws allow for angulation from a fixed angle axis. Multiple screw options allow the screws to be placed as close to the bone as possible to facilitate challenging fracture cases.

  • Low profile aiming to minimize discomfort and soft tissue irritation
  • Plates can be contoured in the axial, coronal, or sagittal planes
  • F.A.S.T. Guide® inserts protect the integrity of the locking hole threads
  • Instrument set modules are color-coded for easy instrument selection
  • 1.5mm or 2.5mm screw sizes
  • Screws with washers provide compression at fracture site
  • Wide range of plate shapes, including:
    • Straight plates for simple transverse, 2-part mid-shaft fractures
    • T plates for simple 2 or 3 part fractures, especially on bi-condylar head fractures to capture fragments mediolaterally
    • Y plates designed to minimize potential tendon irritation in the joint space by securing fragments mediolaterally while avoiding the dorsal aspect of the bone
    • One arm of the Y plates can be removed to create a semi-lateral buttressing plate
    • Web plates for fractures with a higher level of comminution, including bone loss
    • The arms of the web plates can be used to secure fragments or to act as a cage to contain fragments or bone graft without the use of a screw
    • TY plates offer a T end and a Y end for fractures with a higher level of comminution
