SeaSpine Announces Full Commercial Launch of the Reef® TA (TLIF Articulating) Interbody System

CARLSBAD, Calif., April 11, 2022 (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 launch of the Reef TA (TLIF Articulating) Interbody System.

The Reef TA Interbody System is designed to reliably deliver an interbody to the anterior portion of the disc space to optimize sagittal alignment and endplate support. With an array of footprint and lordotic options to choose from, surgeons have the ability to intraoperatively address specific anatomical needs.

“Reef TA is an exciting addition to our interbody portfolio,” stated Dennis Cirino, Senior Vice President, Global Spinal Systems. “This system combined with a comprehensive set of decompression and disc preparation instruments, provides a versatile and reproducible lumbar interbody solution while also offering efficiency gained through instrumentation that is fully compatible with our Waveform (3D printed) TA system.

Reef TA interbody devices feature NanoMetalene® surface technology and Reef Topography™. NanoMetalene is a sub-micron layer of commercially pure titanium bonded to a PEEK implant, designed to provide a bone-friendly titanium surface, while retaining the benefits associated with traditional PEEK, such as biocompatibility, a modulus of elasticity similar to bone, and excellent radiographic visibility for postoperative imaging. The added macro structures of Reef Topography provide greater titanium surface area and improved biomechanical stability.

Dr. Nolan Wessell, orthopedic surgeon at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, Aurora, CO stated: “The Reef TA design allows me to articulate the interbody cage to an optimal location along the anterior apophyseal ring, thereby providing restoration of alignment and lordosis. Furthermore, the NanoMetalene® surface creates an ideal environment for bone ongrowth. I have found the Reef TA system to be very user-friendly and it has allowed for reliable, repeatable results.”
