The Orthopaedic Implant Company Launches DRPx Wrist Fracture Plate

The Orthopaedic Implant Company announced FDA 510(k) clearance and U.S. launch of its DRPx wrist fracture plate. DRPx is the only distal radius plating system that features an enhanced ergonomic design to meet the technique preferences of surgeons while significantly increasing cost savings to help improve the financial viability of ambulatory surgery centers and hospitals.

Designed with Type II anodized titanium, the DRPx features:

  • Pre-contoured anatomic plates
  • Low-profile plate and screw design to minimize soft tissue impingement
  • Variable angle and fixed angle locking screws, locking pegs, and non-locking screws provide optionality for any technique
  • Distal window for graft and/or fracture visualization
  • Indicator lines for improved guidance and adjustment
  • A full spectrum of targeting instrumentation that facilitates precise and fast drilling trajectories
