MOUNTAINEER® Laminoplasty Spine System

Division: Spine
Category: Cervical

The MOUNTAINEER® Laminoplasty System is a complete set of implants and instruments designed to allow for a systematic approach to laminoplasty procedures in the cervical spine. The system consists of three plate configurations to better accommodate patient anatomy and anatomical changes due to decompression procedures. Streamlined instrumentation provides an intuitive means to implantation of the laminoplasty plate.

Indications for Use


The MOUNTAINEER® Laminoplasty System is intended for use in the lower cervical and upper thoracic spine (C3 to T3) in laminoplasty procedures. The MOUNTAINEER Laminoplasty System is used to hold or buttress the allograft or autograft material in place in order to prevent the allograft or autograft material from expulsion or impinging the spinal cord.


  1. Use of this system is contraindicated when there is active systemic infection, infection localized to the site of the proposed implantation, or when the patient has demonstrated allergy or foreign body sensitivity to any of the implant materials.
  2. Severe osteoporosis may prevent adequate fixation and thus preclude the use of this or any other orthopedic implant.
  3. Conditions that may place excessive stresses on bone and implants, such as severe obesity or degenerative diseases, are relative contraindications. The decision whether to use these devices in such conditions must be made by the physician taking into account the risks versus the benefits to the patient.
  4. Patients who have been shown to be safely and predictably treated without internal fixation.

Use of these implants is relatively contraindicated in patients whose activity, mental capacity, mental illness, alcoholism, drug abuse, occupation, or lifestyle may interfere with their ability to follow postoperative restrictions and who may place undue stresses on the implant during bony healing and may be at a higher risk of implant failure.
