Back To Basics: Breaking Down The Fundamentals Of Filters
Regardless of the technology behind the filter, there are several key concepts that all filters share. Our new ebook provides a wealth of detailed fundamental filter information with the goal of helping customers simplify their future filtering decisions.
Embolization In The Treatment of Aneurysms
Coil embolization is a treatment for both aortic and cerebral aneurysms that fills the aneurysm with a coil-like material to close off the aneurysm sac and reduce the risk of bleeding or rupture.
Medical Device Design: The Benefits Of Partnering Early With An Expert Textile Supplier
Ideally, device engineers should partner with a textile component supplier as soon as possible during the earliest stages of product development. But how can a device manufacturer pinpoint the right textile partner?
Overcoming Challenges With Metal Cerclage Cables
Although metal cerclage cables work well in many instances, recently, polymer cerclage cables have begun to take market share due to an accumulation of smaller benefits relative to traditional metallic cables.
Enabling Long-Lasting Clinical Outcomes In Coronary Stenting
Polyester amides (PEAs) bring several desired and differentiating properties to drug-eluting stent (DES) applications for treating coronary artery disease (CAD).
Choosing Wisely: Optimizing Medical Textiles To Enhance Cardiovascular Devices
New technologies and fabric modifications must be developed to meet both well-understood and emerging needs in the cardiovascular device space.
Considerations When Choosing A Biomaterial For Your Orthopedic Device: Part 2
In the second part of this series, we focus on Biomerix Thermoset Polyurethane and the properties that make it ideal for use in rotator cuff repair devices.
Use Low-Cost Materials To Increase Target Emissivity
Clean, unoxidized, bare metal surfaces have such low emissivity that they are difficult to measure with a thermal imaging camera. This application note describes how to use a variety of low-cost materials to increase target emissivity in many industrial R&D and electrical applications.
A PEEK Into The Future
With the paradigm shift in patient treatment from surgical-based procedures to minimally invasive surgeries, extrusion advancements in invasive medical devices and procedural-based innovation are occurring on a daily basis.
PEEK Polymer Enables Breakthrough In Intervertebral Joint Fusion Technology
Solvay Specialty Polymers, a leading global supplier of high-performance polymers, announced recently that Vertera Spine, a pioneer in advanced functional surface technologies for spine applications, chose its Zeniva polyetheretherketone (PEEK) polymer to develop PEEK Scoria, a novel porous surface technology for stable, cost-effective intervertebral joint fusion.
