PEEK in Spine Expert Round Table Presentation: My Experience with PEEK Rod Systems

In this presentation, Dr. Thierry Desjardins summarized his recent experience with PEEK rod systems. A series of 12 patients with 6 month follow up is reviewed. The clinical performance of the PEEK rod systems was encouraging but longer follow-up is needed.



PEEK in Spine Expert Round Table Presentation: Retrieval Analysis of PEEK Rod Systems

In this study, Dr. Kurtz presented a series of 11 retrieved PEEK rod systems. A collection of Ti rod systems served as controls. No PEEK rod fractures were observed. Researchers noted deformation caused by pedicle and set screws on both PEEK and Ti rod systems. Analysis of retrieved tissues revealed minimal PEEK debris.



PEEK in Arthroplasty Expert Round Table Presentation: CFR-PEEK as a Hip Bearing Material

This presentation by Jim Nevelos, Ph.D., covers the attributes of CFR-PEEK that led Stryker to investigate the material as a candidate bearing material in the 1990s. The presentation summarizes the preclinical studies that preceeded the clinical studies of the ABG II and Mitch PCR Cup in Europe.



PEEK in Arthroplasty Expert Round Table Presentation: Design and Development of the Epoch Hip Prosthesis

This presentation by Mike Hawkins, Ph.D., discusses the design and development of the Epoch femoral stem, a pioneering application of PEEK in hip arthroplasty. The presentation covers the fabrication, preclinical testing, animal testing, and clinical studies for the Epoch hip prosthesis.



PEEK in Arthroplasty Expert Round Table Presentation: Clinical Experience of PEEK bearings

In his round table presentation, Mr. Richard Field provides an overview of the clinical studies of the Cambridge cup, the ABG II, and Mitch PCR cups in Europe. This talk highlights the successes and unexpected challenges encountered as a clinical pioneer of PEEK bearings in hip arthroplasty.
