Freedom of Choice

The NCB® Proximal Humerus Plating System allows controlled targeting of cortical and cancellous screws with polyaxial freedom. The system allows the surgeon to lock the screws at any time during the procedure by using locking caps that are threaded into the plate holes. This locking construct improves angular stability such as fractures in osteopenic bone.1*

Enhance Diaphyseal Fixation

  • Aims to provide divergent screw alignment for increased pull-out resistance in the diaphyseal region, even with the MIS Targeting Device.

Fracture Reduction

  • Before locking, NCB Screws can act as lag screws. Therefore, NCB Screws can be used for fracture reduction and apply interfragmental compression, a feature not offered with conventional locking systems.

Non-Contact Bridging

  • In the locked mode the NCB Plate acts as an internal fixator without contact between the plate and the bone surface, which is intended to minimize impairment to the periosteal blood supply. This Non-Contact Bridging concept can also be controlled through the use of 1, 2 or 3mm spacers, which are threaded into the plate holes prior to plate insertion.
