The only anterior cervical plate with a design rationale to help minimise the risk of Adjacent Level Ossification (ALO)
The design rationale of the MaxAn® System is based upon published papers on studies that found the incidence of ALO significantly decreases when the plate to disc distance is greater than 5mm from the adjacent level1,2. The MaxAn® System was designed to help address the potential for ALO by offering:
Proper Screw Placement
An innovative trial drill guide that allows for trialling of the disc space and drilling the screw holes while simultaneously sizing the plate.
Multiple Plate Sizes
The MaxAn® System offers single level plates, which begin at 8mm hole-to-hole (to be used with a 5mm graft) and increase in 1mm increments.
Maximum Screw Angulation
The widest cephalad/caudal screw angle sweep of any cervical plate permits screw purchase in denser bone.
