Anterior Cervical Plate (ACP) System

Cetra™ is a new ACP system designed to meet the needs of today’s surgeon. The system offers a variety of options to fit patient anatomy and provide precise fixation delivery. Cetra consists of quality instruments and implants that are cost-effective and designed to simplify and reduce surgical time. The plate features large graft windows that give the surgeon better visualization of the disc space while the plate is in place. Cetra also includes a single step locking mechanism that does not require a torque driver and can be locked with the same driver that is used to drive the bone screws. This system gives surgeons a wide range of screw options to best suit each patient and achieves up to 20 degrees of screw angulation.​

  • Intuitive locking mechanism
  • High degree of screw angulation (20°)
  • Color-coded bone screws for constrained and semi-constrained options
  • Self-Drilling and Self-Tapping screw options available

The Cetra Anterior Cervical Plate System is intended for anterior fixation to the cervical spine from C2 to C7. The specific clinical indications include:

  • Degenerative disc disease (as defined as back pain of discogenic origin with degenerative disc confim1ed by patient history and radiographic studies)​
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Trauma
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Deformities (i.e., scoliosis, kyphosis, and/or lordosis)
  • Tumor
  • Pseudoarthrosis
  • Revision of previous surgery


The Cetra Anterior Cervical Plate System is contraindicated in patients with a systemic infection, with a local inflammation at the bone site, or with rapidly progressive joint disease or bone absorption syndromes such as Paget’s disease, osteopenia, osteoporosis, or osteomyelitis. Do not use this system in patients with known or suspected metal allergies. Use of the system is also contraindicated in patients with any other medical, surgical or psychological condition that would preclude potential benefits of internal fixation surgery such as the presence of tumors, congenital abnormalities, elevation of sedimentation rate unexplained by other disease, elevation of white blood cells or a marked shift in white blood cell differential count.​
