SeaSpine commenced the full commercial launch of Mariner® Midline Posterior Fixation, a comprehensive, less invasive system designed to offer reduced blood loss, incision size and hospital length of stay compared to traditional open procedures.
Mariner Midline builds on the company's thread-on head technology, incorporating novel cortical screws and rod options. Combined with the Mariner Outrigger Revision and MIS systems, Mariner offers a single product platform to perform open, minimally invasive, hybrid, revision, and adjacent segment procedures.
"After years spent in search of the ideal posterior pedicle screw system for the minimally invasive cortical approach, it was beginning to look like I would need to settle for ‘good enough’,” stated Christopher Heller, M.D., Neurosurgeon at MultiCare Neuroscience Institute in Spokane, WA. “After being given the opportunity to collaborate with the design team at SeaSpine, I can enthusiastically say that the new Mariner Midline system is the no-compromise solution to the unique challenges of midline cortical instrumentation that I was looking for.”
