The prosthesis may be adapted for articulation with the natural head of the ulna or with an ulnar head prosthesis that has replaced the ulnar head.
The angle of the ulna is adjusted by cutting the ulna below the head.
A plate is attached to the ulna to set the new angle.
A plate with a desired angle is selected to achieve the necessary angle on the ulna.
The plate may be attached to the medial side or lateral side of the ulna.
Screws (S) are used in combination with the bone connector (D1), for example, in order to secure the inserted intramedullary nail (1) to the ulna (3).
An apparatus (10) for adjustably securing the humerus, which is on a proximal side of an elbow joint (12), relative to the ulna (16) on the distal side of the elbow joint (12).
The device utilizes a flexible substrate (34) to which are attached releasable compression elements (42, 44) for positioning at the distal end of the radius, and ulna at the lateral walls of the carpal tunnel.
The first band-like body is fitted to a hand joint part so as to surround the hand joint part in the longitudinal direction in the state of covering a radius and an ulnae and a carpus on the front arm side.
