Medtronic has rolled out Atlantis Vision Elite Anterior Cervical Plate System, a titanium implant used to treat patients with degenerative disc disease that affects the neck (cervical spine).
The Atlantis Vision Elite cervical plate is designed to provide stability during spinal fusion, which involves joining two bones together, such as adjacent vertebrae.
The system combines two existing Medtronic technologies in one plate – a quarter turn locking mechanism designed to prevent the screws from backing out or loosening during fusion, and a plate design that offers surgeons visibility to better view the spine.
The Atlantis Vision Elite Anterior Cervical Plate system consists of a variety of shapes and sizes of bone plates, screws, and associated instruments.
The system is intended for anterior interbody screw fixation from C2 to T1 and is indicated for use in the temporary stabilization of the anterior spine during the development of cervical spinal fusions in patients with degenerative disc disease; trauma, tumors, deformity, pseudarthrosis, and/or failed previous fusions.
