  • Ideal biological properties very comparable to bone;
  • No stress shielding;
  • No conductibility of temperature;
  • Separation of PEEK from surrounding bone, which ensures the initial position of the implant
  • Proven biocompatibility and biostability,
  • Natural radiolucency and compatibility with medical imaging to monitor site healing

  • “The patient’s own removed bone segments are always the first choice for implantation. However, unfortunately only a few of those re-implantations succeed, leaving the patient with a defect. To reconstruct this defect in the best way possible the surgeon uses a patient specific implant.

    Although the use of PEEK is relatively new in the case of cranial implants, Invibio’s PEEK-OPTIMA® is proven with over 10 years of history in a wide variety of different regulatory approved devices. Their verified biocompatibility and biostability is crucial for surgeons when choosing materials”, commented Peter Kessler (chair professor, Department of Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgery, MUMC+).

    The novel cranio-maxillofacial implant technology was co-developed by Maastricht University Medical Centre’s engineering department IDEE (Instrument Development Engineering & Evaluation), the Department of Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgery and Maastricht Instruments (MI).
