SeaSpine reported the 25,000th implantation of its NanoMetalene interbody device Dec. 18.
Three things to know:
1. The NanoMetalene surface technology incorporates a sub-micron layer of titanium molecularly bonded to a PEEK implant.
2. The implant provides a titanium surface to promote bone growth, while maintaining biocompatibility, radiographic visibility and a modulus of elasticity similar to bone.
3. In October, SeaSpine partnered with restor3D in a 3D-printing initiative for spinal implants. The company aims to launch its first 3D-printed interbody devices in the second half of 2020.
