SeaSpine received FDA clearance to market its NanoMetalene surface technology for interbody devices, according to a Dec. 15 news release.
NanoMetalene technology incorporates a submicron layer of commercially pure titanium bonded to a PEEK implant with a high-energy, low temperature process, the release said. It's designed to provide a molecularly bonded layer of bone-friendly titanium on the implant.
The clearance allows SeaSpine to describe NanoMetalene as "providing a microscopic roughened surface with nano-scale features" and updates indications for use across the 12 implant systems, which it was previously applied. SeaSpine expects to use NanoMetalene with more implant systems over the next year.
