With more than fifteen years of clinical history, PEEK-OPTIMA Natural polymer, is the first medical-grade PEEK used in spinal fusion surgeries. PEEK is currently the most popular biomaterial for interbody fusion, accounting for 73% of all devices used in 2016.1 Clinical studies suggest that PEEK-OPTIMA performs as well as, or better than, interbody fusion devices made of metals or bone, while providing some distinct clinical advantages over competing biomaterials including:
Invibio continues to revolutionize the spinal fusion market with the introduction of PEEK-OPTIMA HA Enhanced. 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. While offering all of the benefits of PEEK-OPTIMA Natural polymer, pre-clinical studies have demonstrated potential performance advantages when comparing against it including:
Early clinical results for cervical and lumbar spinal fusion indicate potential benefits and reveal specific improvements as observed by surgeons4:
