What Is Su-Por?

Su-Por Surgical Implants are long-term implantable medical devices for the augmentation and restoration of the craniomaxillofacial area. Being made from pure porous high-density polyethylene, the gold standard of polymer biocompatibility. 

The devices are available in sheets, blocks, spheres, and anatomical shapes. The porous structures’ unique nature allows for the patients’ own fibrovascular to integrate, eliminate migration, reduce infection, and improve clinical performance. 

Why Tissue Integration Is Important

Unlike non-porous implants, Su-Por biomaterial allows the patients’ immune system to effectively prevent and eliminate potential infections around and throughout the porous structure. Clinical evidence of Su-Por has proven to be superior to non-integrating implants. It is often cited as the ideal material for notoriously difficult revision procedures where non-porous devices required removal, often leaving damaged and scarred tissue.
