Results of ulnar shortening osteotomy with a new plate compression system
Clark SM et al. – The Acumed’s low–contact plate designed specifically for ulnar shortening osteotomy demonstrated 100 % union rate and no implant removal in the series. This is the largest study to the authors' knowledge of a series of ulnar shortening osteotomies and successful healing without the removal of any implants. Furthermore, the specifically designed ulnar shortening osteotomy plate significantly simplifies the procedure for the surgeon and improves patient outcomes with relief of ulnar–sided wrist pain.
