Plates are used to conform to the contour of the spine and are held in place by screws set into adjacent vertebrae. When the plate requires adjustment, a contouring tool is used to customize the fit to the patient’s anatomy. Orthopedic surgeons use plates for specific clinical indications like Degenerative disc disease, Fracture, Spinal stenosis and Deformities.
Plates are commonly used in cervical temporary fixations, although you can choose steffee plates, thoracolumbar plates and many other categories by our store. The Cervical Plates System is a temporary implant, intended for anterior fixation of the cervical spine from C2 to C7.
