3 spine & orthopedic implant surface technology studies to know

Surface Technology

Here are three recent studies on orthopedic and spinal implant surface technology.

1. Stryker Spine's 3D-printed, porous Tritanium cages led to greater bone in-growth than plasma-sprayed, porous titanium-coated PEEK and traditional PEEK cages after lumbar fusion, according to an animal model study in The Spine Journal.

2. An article in Advanced Materials highlighted applications for titanium fiber plates in bone repair.

3. Additive manufactured titanium spinal implant surfaces may create a more osteogenic environment than titanium plasma spray-coated surfaces, according to a study in the International Journal of Spine Surgery.
