Company’s second fully commercialized interbody system featuring the novel WaveForm 3D printed technology and that addresses an estimated $200 million cervical market opportunity
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 WaveForm C Interbody System.
The WaveForm C Interbody System, SeaSpine’s first cervical 3D-printed interbody, has the highest strength-to-porosity ratio compared to other 3D-printed structures1 due to its proprietary continuous wave-like structure. This interbody system addresses an over $200 million market opportunity. WaveForm C interbodies feature a 65% endplate porosity to facilitate early stability2 and 75% body porosity for graft flowability/packability, decreased stiffness, and improved imaging.
“WaveForm C employs a unique, sheet-based architecture. Years of research have led to this structure, which balances strength, porosity, and surface area, while enabling flowability of our best-in-class DBM fibers product, OsteoStrand® Plus. This feature combination offers what we believe to be market-leading clinical value in an effort to drive fusion,” said Ryan Pearson, Senior Director of Marketing, Cervical.
WaveForm C is cleared to be used in multiple contiguous levels with Shoreline® TruProfile® plating or with the Admiral™ anterior cervical plate. The WaveForm C system includes multiple footprints and lordosis options, allowing surgeons the ability to address specific anatomical needs.
“WaveForm C is the most advanced 3D-printed cervical interbody on the market.” said Dr. Erik Olsson, of UNC Health. “The streamlined design allows for efficient insertion and flexibility with plate placement, while the porosity and surface structure provide an optimal environment for fusion, especially paired with OsteoStrand® Plus fibers.”
