“The Ceres Midline has a minimal terminal distance along the vertebrae to avoid impingement on the adjacent levels. It will be less likely to have to remove the hardware if the adjacent level has to be fused in the future” says Dr Todd Smith

Amendia (http://www.amendia.com), a leading provider of innovative spinal technologies, is pleased to announce the commercial launch of its Ceres™- Midline Cervical Plate.
The Ceres Midline Cervical Plate System is intended for anterior screw fixation of the cervical spine (C2-C7) as an adjunct to fusion. It is indicated for degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, trauma, spinal stenosis, deformity, tumor, pseudarthrosis or failed previous fusion.
“The combination of the Ceres Midline with our standard anterior cervical plates demonstrates our commitment to provide surgeons with multiple options in the operating room,” says Lawrence Boyd PhD, Executive Vice President of Research and Development. He adds, “The Ceres Midline’s streamlined instrumentation is also compatible with our Ceres -C Standalone Cervical Interbody, making our cervical technologies the solution of choice for surgeons looking for unmatched flexibility and usability.”
With a width of 10.5mm and low profile 2.3mm, the Ceres Midline Cervical Plate is designed for one and two-level surgeries and is available in 18 different length sizes.
“The Ceres Midline has a minimal terminal distance along the vertebrae to avoid impingement on the adjacent levels. It will be less likely to have to remove the hardware if the adjacent level has to be fused in the future” says Dr Todd Smith, Orthopedic Spine Surgeon from Birmingham, Alabama.
The Ceres Midline is Amendia’s latest innovation for cervical fusions. The system highlights Amendia’s commitment to responding to surgeon needs, and improving the clinical outcomes for patients.
