Process

CATEH’s step-by-step procedure
001_250x250

1. Imaging 

The surgeon sends CATeh a patient's CT or MR scan in DICOM format

2. Modelling

From the surgeon’s DICOM file, CATEH creates a computer model of the patient’s bone defect.

3. Digital repair

CATEH, in collaboration with the surgeon, then digitally designs a Patient-Specific Implant that will correct the patient’s bone defect

4. PSI Creation

Once the surgeon has confirmed the shape and characteristics of the PSI, CATEH 3D prints it from medical PEEK, post-processes it and delivers it to the surgeon’s hospital.

5. PSI implantation

At the hospital, CATEH’s EVOPEEK PSI is sterilized after which the surgeon implants it. The implantation procedure can be as much as one hour shorter than a similar procedure using an implant made from bone cement

6. Patient health and satisfaction 

Post-implantation recovery times are faster with CATEH’s EVOPEEK implants than with other technologies and/or materials, the defect is corrected more precisely and PEEK’s unique characteristics reduce the undesirable side effects implants can cause.
