Device Description The Zimmer Spine SC-AcuFix Anterior Cervical Plate System components are temporary implants and associated instruments that are used to stabilize the cervical spine during the development of a solid spinal fusion in patients with degenerative disease, trauma (including fractures), and tumor pathology. The SC-AcuFix System consists of single and multi-segmented titanium bone plates of various sizes and lengths, titanium bone screws in various diameters and lengths, and instrumentation for plate insertion. Fixation is provided by the insertion of bone screws through the two openings at each end of a plate segment into the vertebral bodies of the cervical spine. Fixation of the screws to the plate is accomplished by seating into the SecureRing® screw retention mechanism. Screws may also be inserted into additional adjacent screw holes of multi-segment plates if needed.
