  • Antibacterial Benefits of PEKK for Orthopedic Applications Detailed in Study of 3D-Printed OsteoFab® Structures

    December 5th, 2017


    The antibacterial attributes of 3D printed PEKK are significant, since they address two areas of growing concern in medicine.  “Orthopedic implant infections have been steadily increasing while, at the same time, antibiotics developed to kill such bacteria have proven less and less effective with every passing day,” according to the researchers. “It is clear that new approaches that do not rely on the use of antibiotics are needed to decrease medical device infections.”  As a result, the antibacterial properties detailed in this new study that apply to OsteoFab devices will provide another important layer of differentiation for the performance of OPM medical devices in the marketplace.
