Figure 2: Image of the implant (Prototype II). The implant comprises upper (rostral) and lower (caudal) plates. Both these plates have arrangement that allow it to be firmly fixed with the underlying bone. The outer surface of the plate that is in proximity to the facetal bone surface has ragged edges for stabilization. The articular surface has a ball-and-socket–type joint that permits movements in x, y, and z axes. In addition, the plates have an additional vertical plate with a hole, which allows for screw insertion into the upper and lower facets, thereby facilitating fixation
