Rex

Spinal fixation system.

The REX Anterior Cervical Plate system consists of a variety size of main plates, screws, sub-plates, rivets and associated instruments. The sub-plate is pre-assembled to the main plate and designed to prevent screws from backing out using the elastic behaviour during the screw insertion. The rivets are also pre-assembled to the main plate and designed to assemble the sub-plate to the main plate firmly. Each component is subjected to a colour anodising process to differentiate the screw type and diameter and to make the surgical process easy. The main plate has windows in the middle of the plate.

Plate

  • One-step locking mechanism.
  • Single locking mechanism.
  • 16mm wide and 1.8mm thin.

  • Variable types of screws.
  • Each screw type is also available with diameter of 3.5mm and 4.0mm.
  • screws are colour coded to identify function and diameter.

Indication for use

The REX Anterior Cervical Plate System is intended for anterior fixation to the cervical spine. The specific clinical indications include:

  • Trauma (Including fractures).
  • Tumours.
  • Deformity (defined as scoliosis, kyphosis, or lordosis.
  • Pseudoarthrosis.
  • Failed previous fusion.

Screw options

  • Each screw type is also available with diameter 3.5mm and 4.0mm.
  • Variable type screw lengths range from 10-20mm.
  • Self-drilling and tapping screws.
  • Fixed type screw lengths range from 18-26 mm.
  • Self-tapping cortex screws.
  • Screws are colour coded to identify type and diameter.
  • Material: Titanium alloy (TAN).
