SYNPOR® Porous Polyethylene Implants

Division: CMF
Category: Biomaterials

SYNPOR® Porous Polyethylene Implants are ideal for craniofacial reconstruction and augmentation. SYNPOR Polyethylene Implants are manufactured from an inert, nonabsorbable polymer formulated to contain a network of open and interconnecting pores approximately 100 – 250 µm in size.  The pores allow for fibrovascular tissue ingrowth.

Indications for Use
