MEDPOR Porous Polyethylene Implants

MEDPOR Porous Polyethylene Implants provide surgeons with an expanding range of options for reconstruction and augmentation. MEDPOR is a biocompatible, porous polyethylene material. The interconnecting, omni-directional pore structure may allow for fibrovascular in-growth and integration of the patient’s tissue.1. More than 250,000 procedures have been performed with MEDPOR Biomaterial, with
more than 350 published clinical reports in cranial, reconstructive, oculoplastic and cosmetic applications.

    • MEDPOR is easy to work with. The material can be trimmed with a blade in the sterile field, carved and feathered intra-operatively for an excellent final fit.
    • No pre-placing of fixation plates. MEDPOR can be easily drilled and fixated and is designed to accept screws and plates without cracking, giving the surgeon more flexibility in fixation options and placement.
    • MEDPOR Surgical Implants can be easily cut with a variety of surgical instruments. The physical properties of the MEDPOR Biomaterial allow for cutting and trimming the implant while maintaining the interconnectivity and the structure of the pores. Implants may require fitting to the defect area at the time of surgery. The implant edges should be delicately shaped and feathered for a smooth transition from the implant to the patient’s own bony contour.
