Plasmapore®XP

Stability that Starts on the Surface

PlasmaporeXP is an innovative surface enhancing technology designed to complement the PEEK interbody implant. The unique structure, properties and processing of the PlasmaporeXP surface result in unparalled performance. PlasmaporeXP is the culmination of 30 years of innovation in spinal technology and 20 years of experience with porous Titanium surfaces, read the

The unique structure, properties and processing of the Plasmapore surface result in unparalleled performance.

  • Increased migration resistance
  • Enhanced implant stability
  • Increased bone formation
  • Early bone apposition
  • Excellent visibility during imaging

PlasmaporeXP is an innovative surface enhancing technology designed to complement the PEEK interbody implant. The roughened surface provided by PlasmaporeXP, a porous pure Titanium and osteoconductive surface, increases the migration resistance and mechanical strength of PEEK interbody implants. PlasmaporeXP maximizes the contact area between the implant and vertebral endplate, offering surgeons the ideal scaffold for a stable fusion.

The PlasmaporeXP surface improves visibility of PEEK interbody implants during imaging. PEEK is a radiolucent material, allowing for visualization of bone growth adjacent to the implant. The addition of the PlasmaporeXP surface allows for clear delineation of the implant contours during imaging.

The PlasmaporeXP surface has proven biocompatibility and eliminates fibrous tissue response associated with PEEK implants.

An animal study was performed in 2013 that examined comparative histological results at multiple time points between PlasmaporeXP coated implants and PEEK implants. Histology results at 12 weeks for representative (Fig. 1A) PlasmaporeXP coated implant to (Fig. 1B) uncoated PEEK implant. There is increased bone formation and apposition in the PlasmaporeXP coated implant compared to the uncoated PEEK implant. Increased fibrous connective tissue around the uncoated PEEK implant is evident.
