PEEK- OPTIMA Natural patient specific implants for cranioplasty offer advantages over typical cranioplasty materials such as Titanium in terms of radiolucency, ease of fixation and lack of thermal conductivity.
Developed specifically for the implant market, the unfilled (natural) material is a high strength, chemically stable and biocompatible thermoplastic polymer offered as standard, medium and low viscosity grades. PEEK-OPTIMA polymer is already being used for implants in Europe and the US.
Averous, et al (2015) demonstrate how a new a new generation of radiolucent implants offer a good immediate mechanical stability, adequate deformity correction, and a high rate of consolidation (83%) and patient satisfaction at 94%.
PEEK cages are an effective alternative when structural bone graft is needed for different fusions around the foot and ankle. Bone fusion rates are high when PEEK cages are filled with autologous bone. No difference in consolidation time in patients and nerve damage, residual pain at the donor site, and cosmetic problems are avoided. No risk of transmission of hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and HIV when using PEEK cages.
PEEK-OPTIMA™ polymer blends proven performance with superior wear, safety and comfort. Since Invibio introduced PEEK-OPTIMA as the first implantable PEEK polymer in 1999, it has earned the confidence and gained the acceptance of the global medical community.
The properties of PEEK-OPTIMA™ Natural, used in specific-patient implants for cranioplasty offers many advantages over conventional materials such as Titanium and PMMA.
Eminently compatible with CAD/CAM milling processes, it offers implant fixation precision1, strong2-4, bio-inert and biocompatible7,8, offers patients great aesthetic outcomes5 and comfort due to a lack of thermal conductivity3,7. Surgeons benefit too with our material’s natural radiolucency with CT and MRI, allowing post-operative diagnostic imaging.1,9,10
