SeaSpine Announces Full Commercial Launch of Mariner MIS and Mariner Outrigger Spinal Fixation Systems

CARLSBAD, Calif., June 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — SeaSpine Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: SPNE), a global medical technology company focused on surgical solutions for the treatment of spinal disorders, today announced the full commercial launches of Mariner MIS and Mariner Outrigger.

“The commercial launches of Mariner® MIS and Mariner Outrigger™ result from meticulous product refinement and creative application of differentiated features,” said Keith Valentine, President and CEO. “These products represent the expansion of a proven technology platform in Mariner to improve patient care in both minimally invasive and complex procedures.”

The Mariner® Outrigger system features thoughtfully designed, purposeful instrumentation to enhance surgical flow in revision of previous fusions. The system offers novel clinical solutions by providing diversified implants to enable complex revision and extension spine procedures. Novel rod engagement features simplify the addition and extension of ancillary rod stabilization without the requirement for complex rod bending.

“With the launch of Outrigger, I believe this is the most comprehensive system to address adjacent segment and complex pathologies on the market,” said Dr. Doug Orndorff, Orthopedic Spine Surgeon at Spine Colorado. “It gives the surgeon every option to connect to a previous fusion and reduce the morbidity associated with the removal of previous constructs, as well as improves procedural efficiency in the operating room.”

The Mariner MIS system sets a new standard for fixation systems in the minimally-invasive space. The system expands upon the uncompromised strength of Mariner’s thread-on modular head technology by incorporating reduction options to optimize the system for a tissue sparing, MIS approach. The system is designed for the delivery of superior stabilization in true MIS and hybrid constructs, as well as the correction of sagittal balance in combination with SeaSpine’s interbody portfolio.

“Mariner MIS is a completely modular minimally invasive system that covers all contingencies for me and seamlessly transitions to an open approach if need arises,” said Dr. Paul Gause, Orthopedic Spine Surgeon at the Spine Institute of Arizona. “Robust instrumentation and creative implant solutions equip the surgeon to address a variety of pathologies.”

Mariner MIS and Mariner Outrigger are the latest expansions of the Mariner platform incorporating the core principles of system efficiencies, innovative instrumentation and modular implant strength.  These launches are part of several complementary systems launched in 2020 that will expand the clinical applications of the Mariner product family.  Combined with the Mariner Midline and Adult Open systems, Mariner gives surgeons a single product platform to perform open, minimally invasive, hybrid, revision and adjacent segment procedures.
