Intraoperative flexibility and efficiency

The A.L.P.S. Proximal Humerus Plating System is an integral part of the Zimmer Biomet continuum of care for shoulder treatment. Zimmer Biomet offers a diverse portfolio of options for the life-cycle of patients, from sports-related injuries to fracture fixation to shoulder replacement. It features the next generation in humeral plating, offering the surgeon two plating options based on preference and fracture pattern and TiMAX® surface treatment for strength1 and biocompatibility. 

Anatomy

  • Shoulder and Elbow

Product Type

  • Plates and Screws

Benefits

Contourable Plates

  • Using the ‘feet’ of the benders, the plates can be contoured to conform to the patient’s unique anatomic needs. Pre-contoured anterior plate curvature is designed for insertion, to reduce the possibility that a deltoid release will be necessary. 

Implant Stability

  • Using the medial calcar screw provides additional stability in the inferior medial cortex. Pegs with blunt tips minimize screw penetration of the articular surface. 

Education

Literature

Surgical Approach:

This system offers an extensive selection of anatomically contoured plates, which are available in a variety of lengths and in two styles to accommodate surgeon preference for either high or low application on the greater tuberosity. Long plates curve anteriorly around the deltoid insertion, and can be further contoured in situ for better anatomic fit.
