Since its introduction as the orthopaedic industry’s first
precontoured resource for clavicle fixation, surgeons have utilized
the versatility of the Acumed Clavicle Plating System to treat
simple and complex fractures, malunions, and nonunions.
Our objective at Acumed is to provide a comprehensive solution
for repairing clavicular fractures.
Designed in conjunction with William B. Geissler, M.D., the
Clavicle Plating System is distinct and recognized for offering
an array of low and narrow-profile plate solutions, precontoured

affords surgeons the opportunity to choose the most appropriate

This system also features either hex or hexalobe screws. The
Hexalobe Screw System is designed to have increased strength
when compared to Acumed Hex Screws.
The Acu-Sinch Repair System was designed to complement the
Clavicle Plating System by treating Coracoclavicular (CC) ligament
injuries associated with clavicle fractures. The Acu-Sinch Repair
System is used in conjunction with an Acumed Superior Midshaft
or Distal Clavicle Plate to aid in the repair of clavicle fractures.
