DVR® Anatomic Plate - A landmark in orthopaedics

The Distal Volar Radius (DVR®) Anatomic Volar Plating System is designed to address dorsal and volar displaced fractures of the distal radius through a volar approach. It has an impressive story with robust positive clinical experience and over 200,000 plates implanted. 

A landmark in orthopaedics ...
…a growing base of evidence

  • Open reduction and internal fixation with a volar fixed angle plate is effective for the treatment of dorsally displaced unstable distal radius fractures1
  • Secure fixation consistently demonstrated in both case series and comparative studies2– 6, 8–10
  • Subchondral support pegs firmly maintain bone alignment and support the healing capability of the distal radius1,2
  • Rapid learning curve – intuitive, easy to use3
  • Successful management of fractures in osteopenic bone, with a low complication rate2
  • Patient comfort encourages rehabilitation exercise,4 with a fast return to function2,4
  • Excellent outcomes in older as well as younger patients, with high levels of satisfaction in both groups5

…a 10-year anniversary

A landmark in anatomical design ...

  • Natural shape, natural fit, natural choice
  • Contoured to match the natural shape of the distal radius, creating an anatomic fit and preventing tendon irritation
  • Fixation implants should be placed proximal to the watershed line and their profile must not project above it, to avoid contact with flexor tendons9

A landmark in efficiency ...

  • F.A.S.T. Guide™ technology, streamlined technique
  • Pre-loaded, ultra-compact, disposable drill guides; colour-coded for easy plate identification (red: right, lime: left)
  • No intra-operative assembly, designed to optimise procedure time

A landmark in stability ...

  • A three-dimensional scaffold, a confident implantation
  • Distal shape of the anatomic plate and the peg confi guration provide optimal central, dorsal and volar subchondral support and added stabilityfor the distal radius

– Two intersecting proximal and distal rows form a unique three-dimensional scaffold to support the articular surface

– The asymmetrical design of the anatomic plate’s distal aspect supports the volar marginal fragments

– Radial styloid peg helps capture radial styloid fragments

A landmark in accuracy ...

  • Precise surgical technique to minimise post-operative complications
  • Fixed-angle K-wires simplify correct plate placement
  • K-wires maintain reduction and anticipate the fi nal peg position prior to drilling, ensuring pegs do not penetrate joint space
  • K-wires can be used in revision procedures using the Distal Fragment
  • First technique to ensure accurate restoration of volar tilt
