Designed For Success

The MaxAn Anterior Cervical Plate System provides a simple, efficient and innovative approach to anterior cervical plating.

The system offers a decompression-based technique for cervical spine stabilization and introduces an innovative, one-level plate technique that provides a direct relationship between the bone graft/spacer size and the position of the plate holes.


System Features

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 trialing 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.
