New Study Reveals that PEEK Polymer Spinal Cage Is Superior to Titanium in Surgical Treatment of Multilevel Cervical Spondylotic Myelopathy
Date:6/24/2013

olymer. “Although fusion was observed in all patients of two groups at the final follow-up, the Titanium group demonstrated significantly inferior clinical outcomes compared to the PEEK group. More loss of the Cobb angles, measurement of spine curvature, and the intervertebral height was observed in the titanium group, resulting in the radiological parameters in the titanium group becoming inferior to the PEEK group at the final follow-up. Cage subsidence rates were 34.5 % in the titanium and 5.4 % in the PEEK group. The higher modulus of the titanium material properties, is the likely cause of this.” The research team comments on the results of the study.
