Abstract

PEEK-OPTIMA® is an implant grade polyetheretherketone polymer, and has been used clinically since 1999. The properties of PEEK are already considered useful to produce flexible implants, and the introduction of porosity may provide a transitional zone between the bone and biomaterial, further reducing stress shielding in load-bearing applications. Porous PEEK biomaterial with uniform pore distribution can allow the opportunity for the material to better integrate or interact with surrounding tissue. Interest has grown in enhancing the osseointegration of PEEK through mixing with bioactive materials such as 45S5 Bioglass to manufacture porous PEEK production.
