An implantable device may be provided. The implantable device may comprise an upper assembly comprising a ramped base and a pair of opposing windows. The pair of opposing windows may extend upward from either lateral side of the ramped base. A gripping assembly may be disposed in each window. The implantable device may further comprise a lower assembly comprising a ramped base and a pair of opposing windows. The pair of opposing windows may extend down from either lateral side of the ramped base. A gripping assembly is disposed in each window. The implantable device may further comprise a ramped actuator assembly disposed between the upper assembly and the lower assembly. The ramped actuator may be configured to transition the implantable device from a collapsed form having a first height to an expanded form having a second height and wherein the second height is greater than the first height.

A medical device includes a first elongate member defining an interior region and configured to be coupled to a first anatomical structure within a body and a second elongate member configured to be coupled to a second anatomical structure within the body. A portion of the second elongate member is configured to be disposed within the interior region. The first and second elongate members collectively have a first configuration in which they collectively have a first length when the portion of the second elongate member is disposed within the interior region of the first elongate member. When coupled to the first and second anatomical structures, the first and second elongate members can be moved to a second configuration in which they collectively have a second length different than the first length.

The present application generally relates to orthopedic systems, and in particular, to systems including independent plates and spacers. A plating system can include a spacer and a plate that is independent from the spacer. A number of locking mechanisms can be provided to secure the plate to the spacer. In some cases, the spacer includes a pair of notches that extend on an outer surface of the spacer. The plate can include a pair of lateral extensions that can engage the notches to secure the plate to the spacer. In other cases, the spacer includes an opening including a pair of inlets. The plate can include an enclosed posterior extension that can be received in the pair of inlets to secure the plate to the spacer.
