Cranioplasty implant

Technical specifications:

Surgical grade PEEK and titanium, printed using Selective Laser Melting (SLM).


Technology highlights:

The PEEK cranioplasty implant serves to protect the patient’s brain when a large bone defect is present. The implant is designed specifically for the patient, based on a CT-scan of his/her skull.

The perfect fit between implant and skull defect reduces the time (and thus cost) in the OR significantly. The patient specific design by engineers allows a perfect esthetic outcome by mirroring the skull curvature of the healthy, unaffected side to the affected side.


Information and use cases:

The PEEK cranioplasty is readily available through all of Europe since the very beginning of CADskills.
