AFT™ Proximal Humerus Fracture Plate
The AFT™ Proximal Humerus Fracture Plate is an innovative fracture plating technology that builds upon the fundamentals of the CRP™ by being anatomically shaped and by providing the surgeon multiple suture tying points. AFT™, or short for “Anatomic Fixation Technology”, is distinguished in the market several ways, including the incorporation of 20 degrees of retroversion between the head and the shaft, thereby facilitating restoration of normal anatomy during fracture repair. Designed by a world-class team of shoulder surgeons, the plate is optimized to enhance the surgeon’s ability to employ suture for tuberosity management and fixation augmentation of the bony repair. Sutures may be placed through the plate before or after the plate has been secured to the bone.
