The ZEPHIR Anterior Cervical Plate System, developed in Lille, France, represents an advance in cervical plate fixation. For the surgeon, the ZEPHIR System’s minimized height and narrow transverse width enhance visualization and plate manipulation for precise plate placement while reducing the amount of traction on the trachea and esophagus. The rotating drill guides, self-tapping screws and integrated antimigration cap simplify plate fixation and reduce operative time.
Finally, the flexibility of the ZEPHIR System through variable angulation of screw trajectory, multiple screw lengths and revision screws allows the surgeon to individually tailor the construct to each patient’s anatomy. We believe that these design features make implanting the ZEPHIR System plate a nearly seamless component of the anterior cervical decompression and stabilization procedure.
