“It can be concluded that implantation of the new radiolucent system is safe and at least comparable with the commonly used titanium implants in terms of intra- and postoperative complications, stability at weight bearing and at functional recovery and provides sufficient long-term results for the requirements of selected tumor patients.”
The Benefits of the BlackArmor® Technology
“Carbon fiber reinforced PEEK implants provided safe and effective spinal stabilization for patients with both primary and metastatic tumors while integrating into postoperative imaging and radiation planning. The associated reduction in imaging artifacts enhanced postoperative radiation planning and the ability to detect local recurrence.”
