ETurn Ti lumbar spacer

PEEK for Lumbar Spacer

ETurn Ti lumbar spacer

icotec ag of Altstätten, Switzerland, has gained CE approval for its ETurn Ti lumbar spacer. The implant consists of a continuous carbon fiber (CF)-reinforced PEEK (polyetherether ketone) with a titanium coating. The product is used for posterior intersomatic spondylodesis. It is surgically inserted to stabilize the posterior spinal segments.

The mechanical properties of the material combination of CF and PEEK are significantly superior to those of PEEK alone. In addition, the composite offers very good, artifact-free imaging. In diagnostics, the name artifacts is given to errors in perception or representation of visual or aural information due to products or phenomena resulting from human or technical effects. The porous titanium coating on the implant provides an excellent interface for direct and fast bone integration, so permitting direct growth of the bone on the lumbar spacer. Surgeons also like using this implant because of its self-positioning features. According to the company, these features improve surgical technique and minimize the risk of failure.
