SeaSpine (Nasdaq:SPNE) this week announced it launched its Mariner MIS Wayfinder system commercially.
Mariner MIS Wayfinder is a one-step, k-wireless screw delivery system for pedicle screw fixation. It eliminates the reliance on traditional guidewires for percutaneous screw placement by providing a fully-integrated, surgeon-led solution that uses the company’s Mariner modular pedicle screw technology.
“Thoughtful and efficient instrumentation design in Mariner MIS Wayfinder delivers the capability to significantly reduce the number of steps associated with fixation placement,” said Dr. Azam Basheer, a neurosurgeon at Henry Ford Health in Jackson, Michigan. “Combined with the outstanding functionality of Mariner MIS and Flash Navigation’s recently-launched percutaneous module, SeaSpine now offers a market-leading procedural solution.”
Mariner MIS Wayfinder is integrated with SeaSpine’s 7D Flash Navigation system and the Flash Percutaneous module. Flash Percutaneous addresses the minimally invasive spine surgery market for fast and efficient workflows that complement Mariner MIS Wayfinder’s all-in-one modality.
“Mariner MIS Wayfinder has been a powerful addition to the Mariner platform,” VP of Marketing Mike Hall said. “This effective tool is ergonomic and provides a highly user-friendly solution for surgeons using this emerging technique.”
SeaSpine in October announced it planned to merge with Orthofix in an all-stock merger. They plan to close the transaction in the first quarter of 2023, naming the new combined company beforehand.
