DePuy Synthes launch single–use instrument kits to treat wrist fracture

DePuy Synthes have recently introduced the Distal Radius Sterile Kit, a pre-sterilised, single-use kit of instruments and implants to treat wrist fractures.

The kits provide customers with the company’s market-leading plate and screw implants as well as pre-sterilised, single-use instrumentation that helps improve operating room efficiency, streamlines the procedure and eliminates sterilisation costs. In fact, the Distal Radius Sterile Kit was designed to eliminate more than 60 per cent of steps associated with processing reusable sets.[1]

The Distal Radius Sterile Kit consists of one Variable Angle LCP Two-Column Volar Distal Radius Plate, a distribution of screws and the required instrumentation – commonly what is needed for up to 80 per cent of distal radius fracture cases currently treated with plates and screws.[2] The simplified composition of the kit is designed to drive repeatable, more consistent procedures.

The Distal Radius Sterile kit brings value to healthcare systems by eliminating costs and time for sterilisation. In fact, the Distal Radius Sterile Kit was designed to eliminate more than 60 per cent of steps associated with processing reusable sets.

“The Distal Radius Sterile Kit is an example of how we are responding to customer needs by providing value beyond the implant,” said IV Hall, global franchise leader, DePuy Synthes Trauma. “By combining our market-leading plate and screw solution with single-use instrumentation, we are supporting our customers, ranging from academic medical centres to community hospitals in providing high-quality care in an efficient, cost-effective way.”
