DePuy Synthes Launches Single Use Kits For Wrist Fracture Surgery

DePuy Synthes has introduced the Distal Radius Sterile Kit, a pre-sterilized, single-use kit of instruments and implants to treat wrist fractures. The streamlined kits provide customers with the company’s plate and screw implants with instrumentation designed to help optimize operating room efficiency and eliminate procedural sterilization costs.

The Distal Radius Sterile Kit consists of one Variable Angle LCP Two-Column Volar Distal Radius Plate, a distribution of screws, and the required fixation instrumentation – commonly what is needed for up to 80 percent of distal radius fracture cases currently treated with plates and screws. The simplified composition of the kit is designed to drive repeatable, more consistent procedures.

“It’s important in trauma cases for the instrumentation to be arranged in a way that the surgeon can focus on the patient without distraction from the back table,” said Marc Richard, M.D., Duke University Medical Center. “In my experience with these sterile kits, they have helped assure availability of the distal radius plates during unscheduled trauma cases. Additionally, I have found that the simplified set and instrumentation can help the scrub team preserve operating room efficiency.”
