April 14, 2023 / OrthoSpineNews/ – Huntsville, AL based mostly know-how firm, Curiteva introduced a restricted industrial launch using its lately FDA-cleared Encourage Porous PEEK HAFUSE Cervical Interbody System. Curiteva pioneered and acquired clearance of the world’s first 3D printed, totally interconnected porous PEEK construction, using internally developed Fused Filament Fabrication.
The Encourage platform is manufactured using the Evonik VESTAKEEP® i4 3DF PEEK high-performance polymer on a proprietary, patented 3D printer designed, programmed, and constructed by Curiteva.
Alex Vaccaro, MD, PhD, president of Philadelphia-based Rothman Orthopedic Institute shared, “I imagine construction drives biology and the lattice PEEK structure enabled by Curiteva’s 3D printing course of represents an thrilling development in spine, orthopedics, and neurosurgical procedures which contain any kind of biologic implant”.
Kevin Foley, MD, Chairman of Semmes-Murphey Neurologic and Backbone Institute and professor of neurosurgery, orthopedic surgical procedure and biomedical engineering on the College of Tennessee Health Science Middle said, “The Encourage porous PEEK know-how checks the entire bins for an excellent interbody implant: totally interconnected porosity, modulus of elasticity equal to cancellous bone, robust biomechanical properties, radiolucency, and a bioactive floor for osseointegration.”
Randy Dryer, MD, Central Texas Backbone Institute commented, “Interconnected porosity, pore dimension distribution, and nano-surface structure are sometimes hallmarks of the simplest artificial allografts. I imagine this novel implant enhanced with HAFUSE nano-surface topography incorporates these options and presents an optimum surroundings for osteoprogenitor cells to maneuver all through the implant enhancing bone therapeutic (fusion) and decreasing threat of subsidence. I’m excited to supply this to my sufferers.”
“This new know-how additional demonstrates Curiteva’s dedication to growing and investing in disruptive applied sciences,” mentioned Todd Reith, Inventor and Vice President of Rising Know-how. “Our distinctive structure is the results of years of analysis and improvement in 3D printing. As this know-how matures, with our inside experience, we’ve already contemplated different functions exterior of spine and orthopedics,”. The corporate plans a full industrial launch in the US later this 12 months.
