Over 15 years ago, the biocompatible PEEK-OPTIMA Natural polymer quickly became the material of choice in interbody fusion and developed a successful clinical track record. Today approximately 9 million PEEK-OPTIMA devices are implanted worldwide. With the introduction of PEEK-OPTIMA HA Enhanced, Invibio continues to revolutionize the spinal fusion market.
PEEK-OPTIMA polymers are less stiff compared to metal, making it a good fit for applications where load sharing is desired to promote bone remodeling
PEEK-OPTIMA polymers help to reduce the loss of bone mass as normal stress is removed from the bone by an implant
PEEK-OPTIMA polymers are radiolucent without imaging artifacts in X-rays, CT and MRI scans, making it a good option when unobstructed views are required to assess healing or disease progression
Learn about this innovative polymer’s technology, pre-clinical test results and early clinical results for cervical and lumbar fusion, as observed by surgeons.
This comparative study finds potential performance advantages with PEEK-OPTIMA HA Enhanced polymer compared to PEEK-OPTIMA Natural.
Read about how PEEK-OPTIMA spinal rods can be considered a safe and effective alternative solution to rigid systems.
Fully integrated with the osteoconductive material, Hydroxyapatite (HA), PEEK-OPTIMA HA Enhanced has demonstrated enhanced bone apposition at 12 weeks compared to PEEK-OPTIMA Natural1
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.
For over 15 years, the high-performance implant-grade polymer PEEK-OPTIMA Natural has been utilized in spinal fusion applications, predominantly in the form of load-bearing interbody fusion devices. Since its’ introduction it has earned the confidence and gained the acceptance of the global medical community. The properties that make PEEK-OPTIMA Natural polymer one of the leading interbody fusion biomaterials also makes it promising for use in other spinal devices such as:
These inherent material characteristics include:
The innovative polymer is the latest development in high performance materials for interbody fusion devices. Hydroxyapatite (HA), a well-known osteoconductive material that enhances bone apposition is fully integrated, not coated, into the PEEK-OPTIMA matrix making it available on all surfaces of a finished device
Early clinical results from a multi-patient cervical and lumbar fusion case series has indicated potential benefits with PEEK-OPTIMA HA Enhanced devices including:
