SU-POR Surgical Implants

SU-POR Surgical Implants are manufactured from a linear high-density polyethylene. SU-POR Surgical Implants allows for tissue ingrowth because of its interconnecting open pore structure. The firm nature of the material allows carving with a sharp instrument without collapsing the pore structure. SU-POR Surgical Implants are available in blocks, sheets and preformed anatomical shapes that are intended for augmentation and restoration of the craniomaxillofacial skeleton.

The porosity of SU-POR Surgical Implants is maintained large, with average pore sizes greater than 100 microns and pore volume in the 50% range (measured by Mercury Intrusion Porosimetry). Clinical experience and animal studies have shown that tissue will grow into the open pores of porous polyethylene.

Select from an array of anatomical shapes, sheets/blocks and spheres including:

Preformed shapes for chin, malar, rim, midface and mandibular augmentation
Reconstructive shapes for traumatic defects and microtic ears
Sheets, wedges and blocks for orbital floor and wall repair
Spheres for enucleation and evisceration procedures
