Maastricht University Medical Centre Advances Cranial Implant Technology with PEEK-OPTIMA
Date:6/2/2010

Maastricht University Medical Centre (MUMC+) has developed a novel cranio-maxillofacial implant technology that uses an advanced polymer biomaterial, PEEK-OPTIMA®, from Invibio Biomaterial Solutions. The polymer derived Patient Specific Implant (PSI) technology extends the range of patient/surgeon benefits beyond those of medical-grade titanium, the traditional biomaterial used for cranio-maxillofacial PSIs.

(PRWEB) June 2, 2010 -- Maastricht University Medical Centre (MUMC+) has developed a novel cranio-maxillofacial implant technology that uses an advanced polymer biomaterial, PEEK-OPTIMA®, from Invibio Biomaterial Solutions, to extend benefits to patients with severe malformation and defects of the skull and facial region. Patient-specific cranial implants are most commonly used to treat skull defects resulting from trauma, tumors and aneurysms.

The PEEK-OPTIMA® derived Patient Specific Implant (PSI) technology extends the range of patient/surgeon benefits beyond those of medical-grade titanium, the traditional biomaterial used for cranio-maxillofacial PSIs. The MUMC+ process uses CAD software to design the PSI to the individual cranio-maxillofacial contours of the patient. The customized implants are produced on-site, using a high speed milling fabrication process.

According to Maikel Beerens (B.Sc. in Medical Engineering), who initially designed and now markets IDEE’s (Instrument Development Engineering & Evaluation) patient specific implants (PSI), PEEK-OPTIMA’s material characteristics and performance properties provide real and valuable surgeon/patient benefits that include:
