The Valeo Cervical Plate system combines features aimed at making cervical fixation procedures efficient, simple and consistent. The Valeo Cervical Plate system is intended for anterior screw fixation at the C2 through C7 vertebral bodies of the cervical spine.

The implant and related instruments are designed to facilitate placement of the cervical plate and ensure proper angling and insertion of the screws into the vertebrae in a single step, to achieve a consistent supplemental fixation outcome.

"We are extremely pleased to receive FDA clearance of the Valeo Cervical Plate system," said Ashok Khandkar, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of Amedica Corporation. "The clearance of this implant represents another milestone toward the commercialization of our innovative suite of spinal products."
