SeaSpine (NSDQ:SPNE) announced the launches of the NorthStar cervical facet fusion and Flash navigation lumbar facet fusion.
Carlsbad, California-based SeaSpine designed what they tout as first-of-their-kind orthobiologic systems to streamline reproducible procedural workflow while maximizing the area for fusion with OsteoStrand DBM fibers contained within the facet joint.
According to a news release, the company has initiated the full commercial launch of the NorthStar facet fusion, an all-in-one solution for combining OsteoStrand DBM fiber cervical pellets and disposable facet prep instrumentation. All of this is optimized for use with SeaSpine’s posterior cervical fixation system, the NorthStar OCT.
SeaSpine designed its Flash navigation lumbar facet fusion — which will have a limited commercial launch — with instruments for targeting and delivering OsteoStrand Plus DBM fiber pellets within the facet joint during minimally invasive spine procedures. The limited launch marks the first SeaSpine procedural system developed and integrated with 7D technology following last year’s $110 million acquisition of 7D Surgical.
“As we continue to build upon our best-of-class orthobiologics portfolio, it is critical for us to provide complementary solutions to our spinal implant and enabling technology portfolios as one continuum of care,” SeaSpine VP of Orthobiologics Research & Development & Clinical Affairs Frank Vizesi said in the release. “These launches are just a great example of how we are focused on improving surgical workflow and resulting patient outcomes with procedure-specific solutions.”
