By Julie A. Vetalice

Acumed launched the Ankle Plating System 3, comprised of 7 plate families that span the lateral, medial and posterior malleoli.

The Ankle Plating System 3 is used in combination with the Acumed Small Fragment Base Set. The Small Fragment Base Set includes one-third tubular plates, and cut-to-length and bend-to-fit 2.7 mm L-shaped, T-shaped, and straight fragment plates that can also be used to address ankle fractures. Tension Band Pins and Acutrak® AcuTwist® Compression Screws are also included in the tray.

Additionally, the Ankle Plating System 3 includes Hook Plates and Locking Peg Hook Plates, to treat avulsion fragments with the option of hooks or a 2.3 mm cortical peg to capture the fragment distally, as well as 4.0 mm cannulated screws for the treatment of medial malleolar fractures.
