SeaSpine said in an April 11 news release that it designed the Reef TA interbody system to reliably deliver an interbody to the anterior portion of the disc space. The goal is to optimize sagittal alignment and endplate support.
With an array of footprint and lordotic options, surgeons can intraoperatively address specific anatomical needs, according to SeaSpine
“Reef TA is an exciting addition to our interbody portfolio,” said Dennis Cirino, SeaSpine SVP of Global Spinal Systems. “This system combined with a comprehensive set of decompression and disc preparation instruments, provides a versatile and reproducible lumbar interbody solution while also offering efficiency gained through instrumentation that is fully compatible with our Waveform (3D printed) TA system.”
Reef TA interbody devices include NanoMetalene surface technology. NanoMetalene is a sub-micron layer of commercially pure titanium bonded to a PEEK implant, designed to provide a bone-friendly titanium surface while retaining the benefits associated with traditional PEEK, according to SeaSpine. The added macro structures of Reef Topography provide greater titanium surface area and improved biomechanical stability.
