Cervical plate with postoperative dynamic adaptation of stabilizer
“as·C·p” (airscrew Cervical plate) with its anatomical shape and ”airscrew” blockade place itself among the most unique plates available on the market. The pre-bent design facilitates both adjustment and restoration of cervical lordosis in a transverse and longitudinal plane. ”Airscrew” blockade and oval holes in the plate ensure proper mounting of the stabilizer as well as its postoperative dynamic adaptation (avoiding over-rigidity). The plate comes in two types – symmetric and asymmetric – and many sizes (length and thickness). Cervical screws are self-cutting and available in different diameters and lengths.
Moreover, the design of the plate offers additional stabilization e.g. connection with a bone block, cage, or corpectomy prosthesis via centrally mounted screws.
- Supports treatment of the cervical spine in cases of:
- traumas, fractures, dislocations, luxations, and others;
- Dynamic postoperative adaptation of stabilizer, countering the subsidence effect;
FEATURES & BENEFITS
- Anatomical shape;
- Possible screw placement at different angles;
- A wide range of sizes and shapes (symmetric and asymmetric) offers proper implant selection to match patient’s anatomy;

Instruments with trials & self-cutting cervical screws
Well-chosen stabilizing implant is designed to achieve a biomechanical function only in those cases, where, after suitable surgical preparation, it is followed by osseous concrescence and interception of this functions through the musculosceletal system. The range of sizes enables to deal with every anatomical variation and allows restoration of the natural-balanced height of the intervertebral space as well as the restoration or maintenance of adequate lumbar lordosis. Contraindications for use are listed in the „General Instruction for Use of Spinal System DERO”. The implantation procedure of stabilizer is reserved for spine surgery specialists trained in the use of the specific instrumentation conceived for this implant. This main procedure steps are shown for illustrative purposes only. The technique actually employed in each case will always depend upon the medical judgment of the surgeon exercised before and during surgery as to the best mode of treatment for each patient. Presented instrumentation should be used solely with ”General Instruction for Use of Spinal System DERO”. Please see the IFU for the complete list of indications, warnings, precautions and other medical information.
