The modern, comprehensive plating solution tailored to meet highly variable needs of the clavicle anatomy.
A.L.P.S.® Clavicle Plating System
Tailored Fit. Intuitive Instrumentation. Systematic Efficiency.
Low-Profile Plate Design
The A.L.P.S. Clavicle Plating System offers a low-profile design that allows for in-situ contouring and shortening to provide a tailored fit for the highly variable needs of the clavicle anatomy. These features are designed to minimize discomfort, soft tissue irritation and visual prominence in the clavicle where there is limited soft tissue coverage.
Offers three-point fixation for implant stability.
Flexibility in plate design
Plates can be bent, contoured, and in some places broken, to adjust length, providing numerous anatomical variations, eliminating the need for multiple implants and instrument trays.
Minimize Potential Damage
Instrumentation provides precise measurements and includes a short drill to limit the maximum drill depth, along with a Crego Elevator acting as a drill protector beneath the clavicle. All designed to help surgeons minimize potential damage to surrounding soft tissue structures and protect the neurovascular bundle.
One drill and one driver following plate selection aim to simplify the procedure for the surgical team, eliminating the need for multiple implants and instrument trays.
Tailored Fit for Complex Anatomy
The A.L.P.S. Clavicle Plating System is designed to allow for in-situ contouring and length adjustment due to F.A.S.T. Tabs® Technology. Plates can be bent, contoured and in some places broken to adjust length providing numerous anatomical variations with 18 plates. This design offers intraoperative flexibility allowing surgeons a tailored plate fit and optimal implant stability.
The system is designed to provide precise, user-friendly instrumentation and a simple surgical technique to help streamline workflow. Specialty safety features are built into the instruments design to minimize damage to adjacent soft tissue structures such as the subclavian vessels, nerves and lungs.
The A.L.P.S. Clavicle provides systematic efficiency due to the flexibility of the plate design and intuitive instrumentation. The implants and instruments required to perform a procedure are provided in one case for easy handling, storage and transportation, eliminating the need for multiple implant and instrument trays. Each aspect of the system is designed to streamline workflow to provide OR efficiency.
