- Semi-constrained construct for restricted axial construct translation
- Unconstrained construct for unrestricted axial construct translation
- Constrained construct for rigid fixation at 0 degrees
The 3°™ Anterior Cervical Plating System simplifies anterior cervical spinal fusion by accommodating three philosophies in one streamlined device. Semi-constrained, unconstrained, and constrained options are all addressed within this single system. One set of instrumentation and implants allow for varying degrees of constraint at the screw-plate interface.
The 3° Anterior Cervical Plating System is a temporary implant intended for anterior fixation to the cervical spine from C2 to C7. The specific clinical indications include:
The 3° ACP System is contraindicated in patients with a systemic infection, with a local inflammation at the bone site, or with rapidly progressive joint disease or bone absorption syndromes such as Paget’s disease, osteopenia, osteoporosis, or osteomyelitis. Do not use this system in patients with known or suspected metal allergies. Use of the system is also contraindicated in patients with any other medical, surgical or psychological condition that would preclude potential benefits of internal fixation surgery such as the presence of tumors, congenital abnormalities, elevation of sedimentation rate unexplained by other disease, elevation of white blood cells or a marked shift in white blood cell differential count.
