GEMINUS® Distal Radius Volar Plate


  • Dual head design protects flexor tendons
  • Screw options for optimal subchondral support
  • Unique hook plate extension for fixation of volar marginal fragments

Distal Radius Volar Plate

Pioneered by Dr Jorge Orbay, MD, volar plating has dramatically reshaped the treatment of distal radius fractures. In complex cases where surgery is required, the Geminus anatomically contoured plate can be fixed to the volar surface of the bone, its dual-head design reducing the chances of tendons rupturing. Patients benefit from almost immediate mobility with the innovative fixation options of the plate securing the bone fragments and providing stabilisation. 

The Geminus volar plate combines an innovative plate profile with anatomic head geometrics to minimise tendon ruptures. Each head on the plating system is designed to support the anatomy of the wrist and provides options for a hook-plate extension where required. Its distal fixation method uses smooth pegs, as well as screws with high-compression and cannulated polyaxial locking options.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    • Titanium allows plates, washers and screws 
    • Cannulated polyaxial locking screws 
    • GEMINUS® Volar Plates are available in various sizes 
    • Hook plate extension included to support a volar marginal fragment 

    Colles Fracture 

    The cause of a Colles fracture is usually from direct impact to the hand such as a fall on an outstretched hand where a ‘knock’ to the wrist results in a break to the distal radius. 

    Smith Fracture 

    Compared to a Colles fracture, a Smith fracture is less common and is not the result of direct contact to the palm of the hand but direct contact to the back of the wrist. Smith fractures occur when severe impact, such as falling on a bent wrist, causes the distal radius to shift down to the palm. 

    Intra-Articular Fracture 

    Intra-articular fractures refer to fractures that affect the wrist joint in which the break crosses into the surface of the joint. Due to multiple bones being involved in the fracture, they can typically be more complicated to treat. 

    Extra Articular Fracture 

    Extra-articular fractures are a form of wrist fracture that affects the wrist joint. Unlike an intra-articular fracture, an extra-articular fracture does extend into the joint. 

    Comminuted Fracture  

    Comminuted fractures typically occur when the distal radius suffers multiple breaks and can affect anyone, usually a result of a serious injury or accident such as a car accident. 

    Open Fracture 

    Open fractures usually require immediate medical attention due to the fracture being exposed through the skin and the soft tissue.
