The XTEND® anterior cervical plate is a complete system that not only addresses patients’ immediate needs but also considers long-term treatment. While maintaining the most desired features in an anterior cervical plate, XTEND® provides surgeons with the ability to later treat adjacent levels as needed. A Universal Extender plate may be added to any primary plate with no disruption to the primary construct.
XTEND® primary plates: Preserves intact adjacent levels and accepts a Universal Extender plate if adjacent levels need stabilization
Universal extender plates: May be placed adjacent to any primary plate without disrupting the primary plate or screws, eliminating the need to remove the primary construct
