Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation has released the Integra Proximal Humeral Fracture Plate System in the United States.
The system features two different plates. The low profile plate is designed to be placed lower on the humerus to minimize subacromial and soft tissue impingement. The greater tuberosity plate, designed for higher placement, maximizes fixation coverage with 12 proximal screw holes. Both plates include four holes to provide stable fixation and protect against various tilt and settling of the humeral head, according to a company press release.
“Our new system complements the Titan Modular Fracture and Reverse Shoulder System, and allows us to further penetrate the growing shoulder market by providing surgeons with multiple options for fracture treatment,” Robert Paltridge, corporate vice president, president of extremity reconstruction, stated in the release.
