UNIPLATE™ 2 Anterior Cervical Plate System was designed to simplify ACDF’s through the use of a narrow midline plate and streamlined surgical technique. This system features one point of midline fixation per level (one screw per vertebral body) for improved screw visualization, easier screw placement, and minimized lateral retraction, compared to conventional anterior cervical plate construct (two-screws per vertebral body).
The UNIPLATE 2 Anterior Cervical Plate System provides upgrades from the original UNIPLATE in that it offers bend-zones and has less material at the inferior and superior ends of the plate to reduce the risk of adjacent level impingement.
The UNIPLATE®2 Anterior Cervical Plate (ACP) is a featured brand in the CAM-LOC™ family of DePuy Synthes Spine ACP’s.

The UNIPLATE 2 Anterior Cervical Plate System is intended for anterior cervical intervertebral body fixation. This system is indicated for patients in whom stability is desired following anterior cervical fusion for the indication s listed below. The intended levels from treatment range from C2 to T1.
Indications include symptomatic cervical spondylosis, trauma, fracture, post-traumatic kyphosis or lordosis, tumour, degenerative disc disease (defined as discogenic pain with degeneration of the disc confirmed by history and radiographic studies), spinal stenosis, re-operation for filed fusion, or instability following surgery for the above indications.
These devices are not approved for screw attachment or fixation to the posterior elements (pedicles) of the cervical, thoracic, or lumbar spine.
Correct placement of the device is essential to optimal performance. Use of the UNIPLATE Anterior Cervical Plate System should only be undertaken after the surgeon has become thoroughly knowledgeable about the spinal anatomy and biomechanics, has had experience with anterior approach spinal surgeries, and has had hands-on training in the use of the device.
