KATOR announced it has received FDA 510(k) clearance for the KATOR Suture Anchor System.
The Suture Anchor System is a new form of tissue-to-bone reattachment. This system allows for knotless fixation with suture anchors and can independently tension each of the high-strength sutures. KATOR suture anchors used with repair constructs have double the fixation strength compared with other constructs with market leading suture anchors.
With the strength from the KATOR suture anchors, surgeons will be able to use fewer suture anchors for rotator cuff repairs, preserve the more bone and “footprint” area for tendon healing will increase.
