laminoplasty compression plate
Release® Laminoplasty Fixation System
The Release® Laminoplasty Fixation System provides an efficient, streamlined surgical experience allowing for central spinal cord decompression following completion of an open door laminoplasty procedure. Standard, allograft (for use with allograft bone spacer) and salvage plates are offered, along with self-drilling and self-tapping screws. The screw’s self-retaining drive mechanism helps ensure a rigid connection between the screw head and the screw driver. The slim plate design makes placement easier and helps to minimize the potential risk of impingement on cephalad facet joint.
Multiple plate options
Standard plate with hook at buttress
Allograft plate with central screw hole designed to attach to an allograft spacer
Salvage plate to secure floppy or displaced hinge
Orthogonal screw hole orientation on the laminar side, reducing cephalad-caudal profile
Standard plate hook gap increases with increased plate size
Self-drilling and self-tapping designs
Optimal thread form for enhanced bone purchase
Self-retaining drive mechanism ensures secure driver attachment
This system is supplied nonsterile. For sterilization instructions, please reference the package insert.
The Release Laminoplasty Fixation System is intended for use in the lower cervical and upper thoracic spine (C3 to T3) in laminoplasty procedures. The Release Laminoplasty Fixation System is used to hold the graft material in place in order to prevent the graft material from expulsion, or impinging the spinal cord.
