Onkos Surgical, a surgical oncology device developer, said today that it is working with Promimic AB to commercialize Promimic’s nano-thin hydroxyapatite coating technology for use on limb salvage surgery implants.
Hydroxyapatite (HA) is a major component of normal bone and teeth that is already used as a coating on orthopedic implants to promote fixation and bone in-growth. Onkos is developing 3D-printed implants with novel porous structures to facilitate hard and soft tissue attachment. Promimic’s HAnano Surface — applied in a three-step process that creates a nano-thin HA coating — doesn’t block tiny porous structures.
