Implants are digitally designed for minimal modification needed in the operating room. Prescribe design features, edge retraction, 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. MedCAD clinical designers use the patient CT scan data to design an implant according to the 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
ACCUSHAPE® PEEK 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. MedCAD clinical designers will then construct a preliminary design according to surgeon input and preference, which is then approved by the surgeon. AccuShape® PEEK implants have customizable features for patient-matched solutions and can be fixated with commercially available titanium plating and screws.
Hole Customization: Drainage holes and dura “tack-up” holes. Fixation pilot holes may be included to match provided titanium plate configurations.
- Edge-to-edge design slightly overlaps the patient anatomy
- Default design is relatively flush with patient anatomy (most common)
- Retracted design tapers the edge as prescribed.
