SeaSpine® Announces 50,000th NanoMetalene® Implantation

CARLSBAD, Calif., March 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SeaSpine Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: SPNE), a global medical technology company focused on surgical solutions for the treatment of spinal disorders, announced today the implantation of the 50,000th NanoMetalene® interbody device. NanoMetalene is a proprietary surface technology for interbody implants that incorporates a sub-micron layer of commercially pure titanium molecularly bonded to a PEEK implant using a high-energy, low-temperature process referred to as atomic fusion deposition. It is designed to provide a bone-friendly titanium surface with 360 degree coverage, while retaining the benefits associated with traditional PEEK implants, such as biocompatibility, a modulus of elasticity similar to bone, and excellent radiographic visibility for postoperative imaging.

“Our innovative NanoMetalene surface technology continues to be foundational to our Fusion Engineered focus,” stated Dennis Cirino, Senior Vice President of Global Spinal Systems. “In just over two years, we more than doubled the number of NanoMetalene implants used in surgery. Our team takes great pride in positively impacting every single patient life by seeking ways to achieve better outcomes and each surgeon’s ultimate fusion goal. SeaSpine remains committed to advancing the development of differentiated surface materials and novel designs, highlighted by the introduction of Reef Topography™ and the WaveForm 3D implant portfolio. The success of our NanoMetalene interbody portfolio demonstrates that leveraging science and clinical data is instrumental in driving the optimization of fusion postoperatively.”
