SeaSpine has announced the full commercial launch of the WaveForm TA (transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion [TLIF] articulating) interbody system.
The WaveForm TA Interbody isystem is designed to deliver an interbody to the anterior portion of the disc space to optimise sagittal alignment and endplate support. With an array of footprint and lordotic options from which to choose, surgeons have the ability to address specific anatomical needs intraoperatively and without adversely impacting surgical workflow, say SeaSpine.
“WaveForm TA is an exciting addition to our interbody portfolio and provides a best-in-class offering in what we estimate is the US$175 million TLIF market for 3D-printed and solid titanium products,” said the firm’s senior vice president, global spinal systems, Dennis Cirino. “This system provides a versatile and reproducible lumbar interbody solution, while providing efficiency through cross-compatible instrumentation. This allows surgeons the flexibility of choosing from multiple SeaSpine implant families with only one set of familiar instrumentation.”
The WaveForm TA interbody system utilises innovative technology to deliver a highly porous, yet robust, architecture intended to optimise subsidence resistance, implant stiffness, and orthobiologics packability, while maintaining radiographic visualisation during intraoperative and postoperative imaging, the company claims.
Alex Mohit of NeoSpine and Tacoma General Hospital (Tacoma, USA), added: “The WaveForm TA implant has a very thoughtful design. The porosity allows for bony in-growth while also balancing the ideal roughness. The simple and efficient instrumentation has been fine-tuned to insert the implant safely and accurately. I have been extremely impressed with the results.”
