“The Tamina TF proximal humerus plate is not just another angular stable implant, rather it introduces a new concept for the treatment of complex proximal humerus fractures. The tubercular arms allow an ideal positioning of the polyaxial screws in relation to the lesser and greater tuberosities as well as to the humeral head. In our experience this increases the stability of the reconstruction and thus the probability of success in these challenging fractures.”

DIRECT TUBEROSITY FIXATION

src

The TAMINA TF (Tubercular Fixation) Plate offers an improved approach to ORIF of three- and four-part proximal humerus fractures. The plate is designed to allow for direct stabilization of the head fragment and both tuberosities. The anatomically designed arms for the lesser and greater tuberosity assist in accuracy of reduction, allow for direct tuberosity fixation and the creation of a multiplanar screw construct for retention of the fracture reduction.

OPTIMIZED SHAPE

src

The plate offers a varus-avoiding shaft-metaphysis design to prevent secondary varus dislocation of the humeral head. Furthermore, all holes enable variable angle screw positioning, permitting tailored placement of all screws depending on the specific fracture pattern.

SIMPLE AND STANDARD

src

In addition to the TAMINA TF the TAMINA standard plate is a versatile proximal humerus plate for open reduction and internal fixation of simple proximal humerus fractures.

  • Variable Angle Locking Screws

    Thanks to the TIC™-technology our 3.5mm Variable Angle Locking Screws can be locked with an audible click to the TIC™-Screw holes. Using the same diameter as the Cortical Screws only one screw driver is necessary in the OR. For the TAMINA plates, the VA Locking Screws are available in lengths from 20-60mm with an increment of 2mm.

    slide-img
  • Cortical Screws

    Thanks to a consistent diameter throughout the system, our 3.5mm Cortical Screws can be placed in all TIC™-Screw holes. For the TAMINA plates, the Cortical Screws are available in lengths from 20-36mm with an increment of 2mm.
