Mariner MIS is a comprehensive, minimally invasive posterior fixation system built upon the Mariner platform to simplify the treatment of a wide range of spinal pathologies. Minimally invasive procedures are typically associated with reduced blood loss, incision size, and hospital stay compared to traditional open procedures. These advantages are expected to drive a continued shift towards minimally invasive surgery (MIS) adoption and associated growth of the MIS spinal implant market.
“The addition of Mariner MIS is representative of SeaSpine’s continued commitment to evolving the Mariner platform,” said Dennis Cirino, Senior Vice President, Global Spinal Systems. “We’re incredibly excited to deliver the best-in-class versatility, efficiency, and strength of our core Mariner platform to the growing MIS surgeon community.”
The Mariner platform features exceptional implant versatility with fewer trays and implants than is typically required for fixation systems. Mariner MIS allows for both low-profile extended tabs and robust tower-based reduction instrumentation without duplicate screw shanks. These features reduce processing and inventory management costs for the hospital. Mariner MIS is highly adaptable to support physician preferences and anatomical variances in multiple applications.
“Mariner MIS delivers a comprehensive solution for modern minimally invasive spinal surgery. Thoughtful instrumentation simplifies everyday cases, but is robust enough for my complex scoliosis and deformity cases,” stated Joseph O’Brien, MD, MPH, Medical Director of Minimally Invasive Orthopedic Spine Surgery, Virginia Hospital Center. “I’m extremely impressed with the creativity infused into the design of this MIS system.”
Mariner MIS is the latest expansion of the Mariner platform incorporating the core principles of system efficiencies, innovative instrumentation and uncompromised implant strength. This launch is one of several complementary systems coming to market in 2019 that expand the clinical applications of the Mariner product family. When combined with the Mariner Outrigger Revision system, Mariner gives surgeons a single product platform to perform open, minimally invasive, hybrid, revision, and adjacent segment procedures.
