ORTHOBION Nanocoated PEEK cages improve osseointegration in PLIF procedure

Published in the International Journal of Spine Surgery

Investigators have found that nanocoated polyetheretherketone (PEEK) cages for posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) achieve a better fusion rate than uncoated PEEK cages at one year follow-up—while also having similar safety and efficacy outcomes. These are the conclusions of a randomised controlled trial, conducted by Karel Willems (Department of Orthopedic Surgery, AZ Delta, Roselare, Belgium) and colleagues, published in the International Journal of Spine Surgery
