Polymer composites are being recognized as important implant materials for fracture fixation plates. The use of a composite material is dependent upon the mechanical properties of the material and its biocompatibility. The primary objective of this project was to evaluate 30% chopped-carbon-fiber-reinforced poly(etheretherketone) (CFRPEEK) as a potential material for use as a fracture fixation plate. A two-phase study was conducted. The first phase analyzed the short-term biocompatibility of… CONTINUE READING
