SeaSpine Announces Full Commercial Launch of the Mariner MIS Wayfinder System

CARLSBAD, Calif., Oct. 31, 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 Mariner® MIS Wayfinder System. 

Mariner MIS Wayfinder is a novel, one step, k-wireless screw delivery system for pedicle screw fixation.  Mariner MIS Wayfinder eliminates reliance on traditional guidewires for percutaneous screw placement by providing a fully integrated, surgeon-led solution that leverages the strength and versatility of SeaSpine’s foundational Mariner modular pedicle screw technology.    

Mariner MIS Wayfinder is fully integrated with the 7D FLASH™ Navigation System’s recently launched FLASH Percutaneous module. FLASH Percutaneous addresses the minimally invasive spine surgery market and facilitates a fast, efficient, and simple workflow that complements Mariner MIS Wayfinder’s all-in-one modality, making it an optimal solution for MIS spinal fusion procedures.

“Thoughtful and efficient instrumentation design in Mariner MIS Wayfinder delivers the capability to significantly reduce the number of steps associated with fixation placement,” said Azam Basheer, M.D., Neurosurgeon at Henry Ford Health in Jackson, MI. “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 has been a powerful addition to the Mariner platform,” stated Mike Hall, Vice President, Marketing. “This effective tool is ergonomic and provides a highly user-friendly solution for surgeons using this emerging technique.”
