Titanium Coated PEEK
Enhanced Bone Contact
Medacta's TiPEEK cages represent the next generation plasma sprayed Ti-Coated interbody fusion device designed for optimal clinical evaluation. TiPEEK promotes bony ongrowth, maintains the radiolucency accustomed to with PEEK polymer and provides improved stability. The TiPEEK lumbar posterior and anterior cages, as well as cervical devices, are available in numerous footprints, heights, and sagittal profiles to accommodate various patients.
High level fusion rate: ~90% at 3 months post-operatively 
Optimal solution for accelerated fusion & fast bone remodelling
DISC HEIGHT PRESERVATION
Superior behavior for a substantial interbody height restoration and lordosis maintenance
Highly reduced subsidence risk for optimal interverterbral height preservation 
*according to the FDA guidance, ISO and ASTM standard for tensile, shear, abrasion and compression strength for metallic spray coatings.
TiPEEK bioactive cages may promote bone fusion  and facilitate bone formation 
The unique TiPEEK cages may participate in bony fusion processes and increase bone quality 
TiPEEK stimulates bone apposition:
Superficial bone ongrowth around the Ti-Coating texture 
Bone ingrowth with fusion mass formation through the cage interior side 
In vivo bone growth increases with time demostrating maturation and remodelling of the newly formed bone 
Rough, micro-textured TiPEEK surface may lead to several implications:
an improved primary stability due to an increased surface friction
enhanced secondary stability thanks to rapid bone apposition, mineralisation and maturation 
increased migration resistance for short and long term stability 
Test performed on Ovine (16)
TiPEEK cages are compatible with the diagnostic bio-imaging techniques and provide a clear fusion assessment
Unlike solid full Titanium cages or porous Tantalum which create significant artefacts [5,6], radiolucent TiPeek technology allows for:
Appropriate spine support
PEEK core provide a native bone interface[7,8] that may help preventing the subsidence
Physiological load Sharing
Helps to reduce the stress shielding and to facilitate bony fusion
Allows for proper load force transmission at the implant-tissue interface
Support bone formation and reduce osteolysis
Improved biocompatibility actively participating in the fusion process 
Osteoconductive surface to promote osseointegration with the surrounded bone 
Complex micron scale roughness promote osteoblastic differentiation and increase bone formation[13,14]
Micro structured Titanium Spray creates hydrophilic surfaces which may improve neovascularization and subsequently implant osseointegration
LOW INFLAMMATORY RESPONSE
Ti-coated surfaces reduce inflammatory response with reduced risk of fibrous tissue layer around the implant while driving direct bone formation
Patient Matched Technology
MySpine is a tailor made patient specific guide for spine procedures based on the established MyKnee technology.
The guide is intended to lead the surgeon during the critical steps of accurate pedicle screw placement whilst reducing the surgical time and intra-operative X-ray radiation.
The M.U.S.T. Pedicle Screw System is an unconstrained polyaxial screw, rod & connector design applicable to degenerative, deformity and trauma indications using traditional open or MIS surgical approaches
M.U.S.T. MIS Platform
The MUST MIS Platform represents an effective and harmonic concept in terms of minimally invasive solutions. The Mini Open retractor along with the MUST Percutaneous system, can drive the surgeon through an efficient spine surgery result.
