Volar Distal Radius (VDR) Plate

The Acumed Acu-Loc Volar Distal Radius (VDR) Plate has been a market leader since 2004. Designed to provide a more distal fit than many other volar plates, the Acu-Loc Volar Distal Radius (VDR) Plate offers an innovative solution for complex intra-articular distal radius fractures and osteotomies. The Acu-Loc instrumentation supplies surgeons with everything necessary to implant all of the distal radius and volar distal ulna plates. The system features clamps, retractors, and soft tissue protectors, as well as drivers, drills, and targeting assemblies.

Case Study: Fixation Of a Distal Radius Fracture

Patient History: This is an 85 year-old, right hand dominant female who sustained a ground level fall on an outstretched hand. She sustained a Frykman IV, Melone class I closed distal radius fracture that had three intra-articular components. The ulnar column component was split transversely. The Frag-Loc Compression Screw was ideal for this type of fracture that is classified as unstable.
