FIXUS 66 - Elbow
The FIXUS 66 Elbow fixator extends the range of the FIXUS 66 System to treat post-traumatic elbow stiffness as well as some acute elbow trauma. The benefit for this system is that it relies on the advantages of the FIXUS 66 system with its lightweight, versatile and easy to use system. As all the Fixus External Fixation systems, the FIXUS 66 Elbow can be used either as a monolateral or bilateral configuration.

The Elbow hinge for the FIXUS 66 is designed in a way that it absorbs all force during flexion and extension while securing a stable system around the pin sides and stable axis.

The FIXUS 66 Elbow fixator has a unique way to target the anatomical joint axis in the humerus. Where conventional systems rely on one target device, Fixus has designed a double targeting device for even better and quicker placement. This allows for quicker placement and less adjusting to find the right axis for smooth rotational motion.


Benefits
• FIXUS 66 stability, versatility and easy to use basic frame
• Double (radiolucent) targeting device to find the anatomical joint axis
• Allows for controlled distraction of the joint
• Full range of motion to place the Humerus and Ulna pins to avoid nerves
• Allows for fully controlled rotational motion
Range of motion from 0 (stretched arm) to 125 degrees flexion
Indications:
Intra-articular fractures
Post-traumatic stiffness
Delayed treatment of dislocated
   and rigid elbows
Persistent joint instability
Unstable elbow fractures
Distal humerus fractures
