Patient-Specific Implants

Imagine You Had An Implant That Was Tailor-Made For Your Patient

With Su-Por®, Our Porous-Polyethylene Implants, You Can.

Most of the time, our off-the-shelf implants will meet and exceed your surgical needs. But sometimes, a patient’s needs require a specific and unique solution. That’s when our Su-Por Patient-Specific Implants help you meet that challenge.

Our Patient-Specific Implants Provide You A Singular Service.

  • We provide optimal reconstruction by using the patient’s own anatomy to construct the implant
  • We partner with you to produce an implant that meets your exact design specifications
    • Complimentary pre-operative planning sessions working directly with our design engineers
    • An online or physical design review of the implant design
    • A complimentary non-sterile medical model of the patient’s defect
    • An additional non-sterile implant made of the same Su-Por biomaterial for explanatory and demonstration use
  • A sterile backup of the implant is provided
  • Shipping in as little as eight days upon surgeon approval and the purchase order receipt

FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Precise FitEach device is individually crafted to your patient’s specific needs.
Proven MaterialPoriferous polyethylene, a biocompatible material with over 30 years of proven clinical performance.
Variable ThicknessVariable thickness to match native bone.
ModificationMalleable, and allows for easy modification with a scalpel blade or burring instrument.
Direct FixationScrews may be inserted directly through the implant margins into the bone and may eliminate the need for plate fixation.
Sterile Non-pyrogenicImplant kit contains two (2) identical sterile, non-pyrogenic, implants limiting processing risk for the hospital.
Virtual Approval ProcessDetailed electronic document allows for approval prior to manufacturing (optional).
ApplicationTo meet the need of individual patients in applications of craniofacial reconstructive/cosmetic surgery and repair of craniofacial trauma.
MR SafeThis designation by the US FDA provides assurance of no image artifact or distortion of diagnostic MRI imaging.
Tissue In- GrowthThe interconnecting poriferous structure may allow for fibrovascular in-growth and tissue integration.
Suture/DrainageSutures may be passed through any part of the implant. Open pores may allow drainage.
Fast TurnaroundOrder shipment within 8 business days following design approval.

Scanning Protocol

The quality of the CT data is essential to the design and manufacture of Su-Por Patient-Specific Implants featuring Su-Por Biomaterial. Provided below is the protocol to follow:

CT Scanning Guidelines

The patient must be stabilized and remain completely still throughout the entire scan. If patient movement occurs, the scan must be restarted to achieve the best implant fit.

  • The scan should include 2cm beyond the defect area or area of interest.
  • Please provide the original DICOM slice data.
  • Do not reformat or include viewer software with data.
  • Important position or details should be noted as well as any asymmetrical element of the patient to indicate left and/or right.
  • The use of a bite jib during the scanning process for the mandible or the maxilla is recommended. Otherwise, they will be fused in the model.
