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 2013.1
PEEK-OPTIMA Ultra-Reinforced combines the high performance material properties of PEEK-OPTIMA Natural polymer with the strength imparted by continuous carbon fibers. When manufactured into trauma devices, PEEK-OPTIMA Ultra-Reinforced enables semi-rigid fixation with improved fatigue and imaging properties over metal. Unlike metals, the carbon fiber PEEK offers the ability to tailor the mechanical properties of the implant without altering the geometry, offering increased design flexibility to meet the device requirements.
Intramedullary nails composed of PEEK-OPTIMA Ultra-Reinforced have been FDA cleared since 20111, with clinical history dating to at least 20092. Selected published and presented studies demonstrate
