The RibLoc® Rib Fracture Plating System is designed to provide stable fixation that is less invasive for fractures, non-unions and rib repair post thoracotomy.
Most rib fractures are treated conservatively using pain management. Some patient with severe fractures, non-unions or post thoractomy pain benefit from open reduction internal fixation. ACUTE has developed a system that provides stable fixation and a quick and straightforward technique.
The RibLoc® Plating System:
- Less invasive: the system provides for preservation of the neurovascular bundle
- Straightforward technique: the innovative targeting guides aid the surgeon installing the plates in a straightforward, precise and repeatable manner
- Stable Fixation: the plate's innovative U-shape and locking screws allows fixation to be independent of bone quality and/or screw purchase in the bone.
