SeaSpine commenced full commercial launch of the Shoreline RT Cervical Interbody Implant. Shoreline RT products enhance NanoMetalene® technology, a submicron titanium layer that is molecularly bonded to the entire PEEK implant, with the company's proprietary Reef Topography™.
Reef Topography describes the machined macrostructures and undercut features of the implant that are designed to promote bony interlocking by increasing the surface area for new bone to grow onto and into the implant. Shoreline RT provides 40% more NanoMetalene endplate surface area and 50% more NanoMetalene aperture surface area versus Shoreline without Reef Topography.
Shoreline RT is designed for anterior cervical discectomy fusion procedures as part of the company’s Shoreline ACS TruProfile® Plating System or in combination with its Cabo™ anterior cervical plate. Fusion is accomplished by use of SeaSpine's OsteoStrand® and OsteoStrand Plus® allograft demineralized bone matrix offerings.
“Combined with proprietary NanoMetalene technology and the deliberate design of Reef Topography surface technology, Shoreline RT is a perfect illustration of our Fusion Engineered™ philosophy,” stated Dennis Cirino, Senior Vice President, Global Spinal Systems. “This is another example of how SeaSpine continues to focus on delivering improved procedural solutions – we are advancing every facet of our portfolio from access to Implants to Orthobiologics and in this case, a proprietary and advanced interbody surface technology.”
