Orthopedic Radial Head System
Jindal Medi Surge's [JMS] Orthopedic Radial Head System is a medical device used in orthopedic surgery to treat injuries and conditions related to the radial head, which is the disc-shaped bone at the elbow joint that articulates with the humerus and ulna. Injuries to the radial head can result from trauma, such as falls or accidents, and can range from simple fractures to more complex fractures and dislocations. The Orthopedic Radial Head System is designed to replace or repair the damaged radial head. There are various types of implants and systems available, and the choice depends on the severity of the injury, the surgeon's preference, and the patient's individual needs. Some common components and techniques associated with this system include: Radial Head Prostheses: These are artificial implants designed to replace the damaged or fractured radial head. They are made from various materials, including metal and polyethylene, and come in different shapes and sizes to match the patient's anatomy. Radial Head Repair: In some cases, instead of replacing the radial head, surgeons may opt for repair techniques like open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) using screws and plates to stabilize the fractured bone. Arthroplasty: This is a surgical procedure that involves the replacement of the radial head with a prosthetic implant, which can be part of the Orthopedic Radial Head System. Rehabilitation: Following surgery, rehabilitation is crucial to restore range of motion and function to the elbow joint. Physical therapy and exercises are often recommended to aid in the recovery process. The choice of treatment depends on factors such as the type and severity of the injury, the patient's age and activity level, and the surgeon's expertise. The goal of using the Orthopedic Radial Head System is to restore the stability and function of the elbow joint, reduce pain, and improve the patient's quality of life.
