Amendia has launched the Ceres midline cervical plate.
The Ceres midline cervical plate system is intended for anterior screw fixation of the cervical spine (C2-C7) as an adjunct to fusion. It is indicated for degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, trauma, spinal stenosis, deformity, tumour, pseudarthrosis or failed previous fusion.
With a width of 10.5mm and low profile 2.3mm, the Ceres midline cervical plate is designed for one and two-level surgeries and is available in 18 different length sizes.
“The Ceres midline has a minimal terminal distance along the vertebrae to avoid impingement on the adjacent levels. It will be less likely to have to remove the hardware if the adjacent level has to be fused in the future” says Todd Smith, orthopaedic spine surgeon from Birmingham, USA.
