The Rhausler Anterior Cervical Vertebrae Plate System is intended for use in single and multi-level anterior cervical intravertebral internal stabilization and arthrodesis surgeries from C3 through C7. Surgical indications include:
Surgical indications and techniques of augmentation of bony stabilization with anterior
plate and screw in the cervical spine have been the subject of multiple clinical publications
The Cervical Plate System offers three cervical plate options:
All three low-profile medical grade titanium alloy cervical plates are available in one-, two-, and three-level designs in a range of sizes. The Dynamic and Semiconstrained plates also come as four-level plates. All three use the same bone screws, providing ultimate operative flexibility allowing the surgeon to modify the type of cervical plate used depending on intraoperative pathology and bone quality.
With Rhausler’s Cervical Plating Set you have the options of using the Dynamic, Semiconstrained or QuickPlate Cervical Plates, and Bone Screws with all the same associated insertion instruments, while utilizing the same proven bone screw locking mechanism for each plate design. By changing one attachable Drill Guide, all three plates can be implanted with the same Rhausler instrumentation.
The Bone Screw is retained inside the plate’s screw holes with one simple 1/16 turn of
the CAM-Lock mechanism. The CAM-Lock keeps the shoulders of the screw retained, but free to translate and rotate, in the recess in the undercut shoulders of the screw hole in the plate. This allows the bone screw to have both linear dynamic and axial rotational movement in the Dynamic Plate, and axial rotational movement in the Semiconstrained and QuickPlate. These dynamic motions allow the intra-discal bone graft to be mechanically loaded, according to Wolff’s Law.
