Trimed dynamic compression plate shows improvements in radiographic ulnar variance

March 6, 2015

Patients who underwent ulnar shortening with the Trimed dynamic compression plate experienced consistent objective improvements in radiographic ulnar variance, according to study results.

Researchers obtained radiographic analysis preoperatively and at an average 24-month follow-up for 27 patients who underwent ulnar shortening using the Trimed dynamic compression plate. The DASH inventory, Patient-Rated Wrist Evaluation (PRWE) and VAS for pain were completed by a subset of 12 patients. The subset also underwent clinical evaluation for range of motion and strength.
