Examination of the osteoconductive, antibiofilm & biomechanical properties of a PEEK-ZEOLITE composite biomaterial for intervertebral spine fusion surgery

, , , ,
Introduction: Polyether ether ketone (PEEK), a common spine biomaterial demonstrates intrinsic inertness and hydrophobic properties, thereby resulting in an inherent susceptibility to bacterial infections and reduced fusion capacity within the intervertebral space due to fibrous [...]
