The SKYLINE Anterior Cervical Plate System provides a versatile system of implants and instruments to accommodate the needs and individual preferences of surgeons. The system offers optimal visualization, adapts to the anatomy of the patient, and instills the confidence afforded through proven technology.
The SKYLINE Anterior Cervical Plate System is designed for use in a variable, constrained, or hybrid screw configuration.
Implant & Instrument Versatility
Optimized Plate Design
Clinically Established Technology
The SKYLINE Anterior Cervical Plate System is indicated for stabilization of the cervical spine from C2 to C7 employing unicortical screw fixation at the anterior face of the vertebral bodies. Specific clinical indications for anterior plating include: instability caused by trauma; instability associated with correction of cervical lordosis and kyphosis deformity; instability associated with pseudoarthosis as a result of previously failed cervical spine surgery; instability associated with major reconstructive surgery for primary tumors or metastatic malignant tumors of the cervical spine; instability associated with single or multiple level corpectomy in advanced degenerative disc disease, spinal canal stenosis and cervical myelopathy.
WARNING: These devices are not approved for screw attachment or fixation to the posterior elements (pedicles) of the cervical, thoracic, or lumbar spine.
Until maturation of the fusion is confirmed by radiographic examination, external immobilization (such as bracing) may be recommended, based on physician judgment.
Instructions to the patient to reduce stress on the implants are an equally important part of the attempt to avoid the occurrence of clinical problems that may accompany fixation failure.
Relative contraindications include any entity or condition that totally precludes the possibility of fusion (e.g., cancer, kidney dialysis or osteopenia), obesity, certain degenerative diseases, and foreign body sensitivity.
WARNING: This product has labeling limitations. See package insert for additional warnings, precautions and possible adverse effects.
CAUTION: USA law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of physician.
