VERTICALE Cervical is a posterior fixation system to provide immobilization and stabilization of spinal segments of the craniocervical junction (occiput-C2), subaxial cervical spine (C3-C7) and upper thoracic spine (T1-T3).

VERTICALE Cervical can be connected with the VERTICALE Platform with appropriate implants. The VERTICALE Cervical system has been developed together with clinical experts in order to optimally meet the requirements of any user. By including features of the VERTICALE OPEN System it minimizes learning curves.

VERTICALE Cervical includes 3.5, 4.0 & 4.5mm diameter polyaxial screws, various connectors and several occipital plates to ensure users have options when addressing pathologies of the occipitocervical junction, as well as the posterior cervical and upper thoracic spine, to ideally match the anatomy of a respective patient.

Instruments designed according to your needs

All screwdrivers and other instruments are suitable for all VERTICALE Cervical screw types. All screws are equipped with a Torx drive to ensure optimum control and reduce toggling. Like all screws in the VERTICALE Platform, VERTICALE Cervical Screws are available with solid and cannulated shafts.

Improved ergonomics in case of challenging anatomy

Angled occiput instruments ease challenging access to plate and screw placement, even under difficult anatomical conditions like limited approach angle and narrow space conditions.

Offering of 3 different occipital plates

There are 3 different occipital plate options. The integrated rod receptacles have a medial-lateral offset sliding mechanism and are also able to rotate for easier rod insertion.

The uniqueness of our screws

14 screw types and over 180 screw sizes in diameters of 3.5mm, 4.0mm and 4.5mm, either with a solid or cannulated screw shank, are available. The high deflection of the polyaxial screw head (angulation 40°) serves to ideally adapt to a patient's anatomy. All screws can accommodate ∅ 3.5 and 4.0mm rods.

For more difficult anatomical conditions a FA screw (far angle, preferred deflection 57° in cranial or caudal direction) can be utilized. All screws are equipped with a self-tapping cutting notch at the distal tip to facilitate the screw insertion.
