Notes regarding the use of PEEK Patient Specific Implants:
PEEK Patient Secific Implants require minimal (if any) modification. For minor fit modifications, it is suggested that the surgeon modify the patient bone rather than modifying the PEEK Patient Specific Implant. PEEK Patient Specific Implants can be modified with a high speed burr, if needed. PEEK implants should be modified and rinsed in sterile saline solution away from the implant/surgical site to ensure that the particulate debris does not infiltrate the surgical site after any modifications.

 

DePuy Synthes standard plates and self-tapping or self-drilling screws should be used to attach the PEEK Patient Specific Implant to the patient.
Screw holes, regardless of screw size and type, must be predrilled away from the surgical site.
