The reconstructive interpositional PEEK Titanium Wedge System (RIPTIDE) has a titanium plasma porous spray for initial fixation designed to aid in early bone growth, and a core made of PEEK, with modulus of elasticity similar to cancellous bone. The RIPTIDE Wedge system is available in dimensions optimized for cotton and evans opening wedge osteotomies
Early initial fixation
- Titanium plasma spray surface increases calcium deposition by 305% and 470% after 24 hours, compared to Titanium and PEEK, respectively1
- Titanium plasma spray coating increases surface area by 40% at the microscale1
- PEEK material has similar modulus of elasticity to cancellous bone
- Tantalum markers enable intra-operative visualization
Large graft window
- Autograft or Bonus® Triad Allograft material can be applied in the graft window before implantation
Offers a stable, secure implant with properties similar to cancellous bone, early initial fixation, and radiographic markers to aid intra-operative visualization
