Proximal humerus plate eight 4.0/3.5 vas

Art. no. 5.790.XX

This implant was designed with a focus on providing a precise anatomical fit and the ideal diverging screw position in the area of the humeral head.

Treatment of proximal humeral fractures

Proximal humeral fractures represent 5% of all fractures in humans. Treating these fractures is challenging in terms of bone reconstruction due to the anatomical features of the shoulder joint, which is stabilised by soft tissue only.
The variable angle-stable proximal humerus plate with 8 head holes for 4.0/3.5 screws allows surgeons to treat both simple and complex proximal humerus fractures.



  • Guide block for the head area, for easy fitting
  • Suitable for deltopectoral and deltoid-splitting approach
  • Optimal adjustment of plate height using the guide block
  • Temporary fixation of plate and guide block regardless of screw application
  • Improved ability to fix the tubercle to the plate through optimised penetration with surgical needles
  • Removal of metal made easier by the TiOB® surface coating on the plates (type II anodising)
  • The surgeon can choose between three angle-stable screw types for the head holes in the plate head – Ø 3.5 mm cortical/ Ø 4.0 mm cortical and Ø 4.0 mm cancellous
  • No additional risk to vital ventromedial blood supply
  • Access to greater tubercle, frequently subject to dorso-cranial dislocation
  • The reduction result can easily be reviewed by means of craniocaudal X-ray images
  • Easy to manipulate fragments using sutures
  • Can also be used to treat existing (partial) rotator cuff tears
  • 8 head holes
  • Variable angle-stable
  • Titanium
  • For screws Ø 4.0/3.5 mm
  • Plate thickness: 3 mm
  • Shaft width 13 mm with 2, 3, 4 and 5 holes in the plate shaft to reduce bone support (to protect the periosteum)
  • Shaft width 17 mm from 6 holes in the plate shaft
  • Variable angle-stable combination holes in the head region for angle-stable cancellous bone
  • or cortical screws Ø 4.0 mm or angle-stable cortical screws Ø 3.5 mm
  • Combination holes in shaft for standard or Ø 3.5mm angle-stable cortical screws
  • Elongated hole for intra-operative alignment of the plate
  • Fixation holes for Kirschner wires
  • Fixation holes for rotator cuff refixation
  • Uniform plate versions for left and right
  • Anatomical fit for the humeral head
  • Divergent screw position in the head area
  • The guide block can be used to assist with angle-stable fixation in the head holes
  • Available lengths: 63 mm to 253 mm (2-hole to 14-hole)
