SeaSpine has announced the limited commercial launch of its Regatta lateral plate system. This is its first standalone lateral plate.
According to the company, this lateral lumbar interbody fusion (LLIF) fixation system allows for multiple plating options, including one, two, and four-hole plates.
“The Regatta lateral plate provides me with the options, confidence, and ease of use that has been missing from the market,” said Kevin O’Neill (OrthoIndy, Indianapolis, USA). “The ability for the plate to seamlessly attach to the Regatta Interbody allows for a lower profile plate that reduces the need for me to further open my retractor and eliminates bulky instrumentation.”
According to a company press release, the Regatta lateral plate is designed to easily integrate with the Regatta interbody to provide the best plate option for minimal psoas disruption and vertebral body overhang. Two different locking mechanisms allow for both separate standalone LLIF fixation for the two and four-hole plates and a robust temporary fixation for the one-hole plate.
“This next generation lateral fixation solution adds value and versatility to our expanding Regatta lateral product portfolio and represents our drive to meet the needs of the surgeon for better patient outcomes in lateral surgeries,” said Dennis L Cirino (Carlsbad, USA), senior vice president of global spinal systems at SeaSpine. “Combined with our NanoMetalene implant portfolio, proprietary and market leading Osteostrand Plus DBM fibres and our existing Regatta access instrumentation, SeaSpine continues to provide complete procedural solutions for surgeons to address the least to most complex surgical challenges.”
