Set of Universal Drill Guides - Distal part of the humerus - Cat
The lateral part of the condyle of the humerus protects the humerus from the side and connects to the head of the radius bone. A fracture occurs when an animal jumps or falls. There is then a transfer of forces acting on the radius bone to the condyle. In parallel, the ulna behaves like a wedge splitting the bone into two or more fragments. Surgical treatment should achieve anatomical congruence of the articular surfaces and permanent stabilization of the fracture, which will allow the elbow joint to recover quickly and limit the development of osteoarthritis.
The guide allows precise guidance of the 1.8mm drill to achieve an anatomically correct treatment. The device can be fixed to bone with repositioning forceps or Kirchner wires with a diameter of 1mm.
Possibility of steam sterilization at 121*C - endurance of minimum 10 cycles.
Drill guide made of biocompatible material certified for blood contact.
Set includes two guides: one designed for the left humerus and the other for the right humerus.
