Implant is digitally designed to minimize modification needed in the operating room. Specify hole placement, edge type, and more.
PEEK compares well with the characteristics of natural cortical bone. The material is compatible with commercially available surgical tools and titanium fixation systems.
AccuShape® Tech Specs
AccuShape® PEEK Cranial Implants are patient-specific cranioplasty plates designed with the edge customized to individual patient anatomy. MedCAD biomedical engineers use the patient CT scan data to design the implant according to the preferences and clinical input of the surgeon. The cortical-bone-like characteristics of PEEK polymer make AccuShape® ideal for patient-specific cranioplasty solutions.
Comparable to cortical bone
Steam autoclavable and gamma radiation resistant
AccuShape® cranial implants fill bony voids with a PEEK polymer material comparable to the characteristics of cortical bone. The implant is derived from patient CT scan data, which MedCAD verifies and approves according to the CT scan protocol. MedCAD biomedical engineers will then construct a preliminary design according to surgeon input and preference, which is then approved by the surgeon. AccuShape® PEEK implants have customizable edge design for patient-matched solutions and can be fixated with commercially available titanium plating and screws.
PEEK Implant Hole Design: options for fixation holes matching titanium plate configurations and dura-tack-up hole patterns. Dura Tack Up Holes are 1.5mm in diameter. AccuShape Cranial Implants also include 2mm drainage holes.
Edge Retraction Options: AccuShape Cranial Implants have three primary customizable options of edge design. The edge-to-edge design slightly overlaps the patient anatomy, the default design is relatively flush with patient anatomy (most common), and the retracted design tapers the edge as prescribed.
One-Day “Fast Track” Delivery of a cranial implant requires 24 hour notice and a 9am (Central Standard Time) CT upload to the MedCAD server. Complete case information and design approval times are customer factors that vary in the Fast Track process, so filling out a MedCAD Service Request helps reinforce the quick delivery.
