VISTA, Calif., Oct 16, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) —
SeaSpine Holdings Corporation SPNE, -3.72% a global medical technology company focused on surgical solutions for the treatment of spinal disorders, today announced the launch of its Cambria™ NanoMetalene® cervical interbody body fusion device.
Cambria NanoMetalene is indicated for use as an adjunct to fusion in patients with degenerative disc disease (DDD) and accompanies SeaSpine®’s growing portfolio of devices offering this proprietary technology.
In a presentation during NASS, Dr. James Bruffey, orthopedic spine surgeon in San Diego, commented on the topic of bond strength of NanoMetalene and indicated that destructive testing as well as insertion and push-out testing demonstrated no delamination of our atomic deposition titanium surface.
Cambria NanoMetalene offers the benefits associated with traditional PEEK-OPTIMA devices such as a modulus of elasticity similar to bone  and radiolucency for postoperative imaging, which allows surgeons to view the operative area and determine the extent of fusion of the vertebral bodies  . With a molecularly bonded titanium surface on an uncompromised PEEK-OPTIMA implant [2,3] , SeaSpine provides customers an interbody solution offering the best of both materials.
“SeaSpine is committed to leveraging this unique technology and delivering interbodies that provide an optimal environment for fusion,” said Keith Valentine, CEO of SeaSpine. “We are excited to now add Cambria NanoMetalene to the portfolio for cervical procedures.”
SeaSpine has received FDA 510(k) clearance for other NanoMetalene-coated PEEK interbody devices in its current portfolio and expects to continue launching additional products with this technology throughout the next year.
