Call for Late Breaking Abstracts: 4th International PEEK Meeting, April 25-26, 2019

The Implant Research Center of Drexel University and Exponent, Inc., are pleased to announce the call for late breaking abstracts for the 4th International PEEK Meeting, which will be convened at The Cosmos Club, Washington, DC, USA on April 25 and 26, 2019. The purpose of the conference was to bring together engineers, scientists, regulators, and clinicians from academia, industry, and government agencies for the presentation of leading edge research on advancements in medical grade polyaryletherketone (PAEK) polymer technology and clinical applications. Although all scientific studies, clinical applications and innovations related to the broad family of medical grade PAEKs were welcome at this conference, the majority of submissions were related to implantable PEEK and its composites. Click here for more on the call for abstracts. 



Coming in 2019: The PEEK Biomaterials Handbook - 2nd Edition

At long last the manuscript for the 2nd Edition of the PEEK Biomaterials is completed and has been sent to the publisher. Printing of the book will be available in January  2019, in time for the 4th International PEEK Meeting (IPEEKM). Check back soon for more details. The book can be preordered from Elsevier.



Structure-Property Relationships for 3D Printed PEEK Cages

A standardized cage design was 3D printed with different speeds of the print head nozzle to investigate whether 3D printed PEEK cages exhibit sufficient material properties for lumbar fusion applications. It was observed that the strength of the 3D printed cages were 63-92% of the machined cages. Printing speed is an important printing parameter for 3D printed PEEK.



Application of 3D-printed PEEK Scapula Prosthesis in Oncology Repair

This study from Xi'an, China, investigated the efficacy of 3-dimensional (3D) printing of PEEK in the treatment of benign fibrous histiocytoma of the scapula. This case report describes the implantation of a PEEK scapula material prepared by 3D printing technology, which has not yet been reported clinically.
