Mechanical Adjustment Of Implant Works
- Oct 11, 2017 -

In the spinal surgery, trauma and orthopedic medical products more and more widely. PEEK offers many advantages over typical medical implants such as titanium, cobalt, chromium, etc.: Lower elastic modulus prevents stress masking and keeps the surrounding bones strong. Can be seen through the X-ray, CT and MRI scan is not visible, which can be easily assessed bone growth and healing process; in some cases need to see the implant, can also be achieved through resin modification. Excellent disinfection performance, even if the long-term exposure to hot steam, ethylene oxide and γ-ray, can still maintain its original nature does not change.Implant Works

Better biocompatibility. Mechanical properties can be adjusted by adding different additives, including carbon fiber, barium sulfate and glass fiber, to meet different application requirements. For example, the addition of short carbon fibers to the implantation stage improves its abrasion and wear resistance; the mechanical strength of continuous carbon fiber reinforcement can be comparable to that of cobalt-chromium alloys, titanium alloys, aluminum alloys and stainless steels. Larger design freedom can be easily processed with semi-finished blanks, or by injection molding.Implant Works

With the continuous improvement of the type of internal fixation system and the continuous improvement of technology, intervertebral decompression and bone graft fusion has become a mature surgical approach, it can provide immediate cervical stability, firmly fixed bone graft, Bone graft fusion, and can achieve a more thorough surgical decompression, reduce re-operation, so that patients with early postoperative activities, shorten the hospital stay.Implant Works

Because of its mostly anatomical, the surface of the spinous processes and fine steel needle, real-time stability is better, can reduce the incidence of bone grafting, while increasing the contact area, so that the stress dispersion, thereby reducing its settlement rate. In addition, its operation is simple, high fusion rate of intervertebral, elastic modulus is closer to the vertebral body, so that it can maintain the height of the intervertebral space and cervical curvature of the curvature of the adjacent vertebrae degeneration.Implant Works
