Porous PEEK demonstrates greater osseintegration than micro-textured titanium

The virtues of polyetheretherketone (PEEK) as a material for spinal implants are well documented. PEEK’s radiolucency along with its similar strength and stiffness to bone have led to the widespread use of the material in implant manufacture. However, PEEK is a hydrophobic substance, with a number of studies associating it with fibrous encapsulation. Titanium is growing … Continue reading Porous PEEK demonstrates greater osseintegration than micro-textured titanium
