Bone density issues complicate the durability of proximal humerus repairs. Independent biomechanical testing compared the Conventus PHS Implant to the Philos Proximal Humerus Plate in a surrogate model using synthetic bone with a medial wedge representing severe comminution. The Conventus Cage proved that it is comparable in performance when measured against the Philos Proximal Humerus Plate in axial and torsional load modes. Unlike other fracture management systems such as plates/screws or rods, the Conventus Cage also provides intramedullary support to the articular surface with its 3-Dimensional design.

EQUIVALENT OR BETTER THAN LEADING PLATES
Independent biomechanical testing compared the Conventus DRS™ Implant to both the DePuy DVR Plate and the Synthes Volar T-Plate in a synthetic bone model with a simulated fracture. The Conventus DRS construct was found to be statistically equivalent in stability to the DVR plate construct, and significantly better than that with the T-plate.
