Medacta Announces FDA Clearance for Multiple Sports Medicine Products: MectaLock All-Suture Anchors, MectaTap Ti Suture Anchors and MectaFIX CL
CASTEL SAN PIETRO, 04 March 2020 - Medacta is proud to announce that it has received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for three new Sports Medicine products: MectaLock All-Suture Anchor, MectaTap TI Suture Anchor and Mectafix CL Fixation Button with Continuous Loop. These three products for arthroscopy are now being introduced in the U.S. market.
Both the MectaLock All-Suture Anchors and MectaTap TI Suture Anchors are used for soft tissue re-fixation (i.e.: muscles, tendons, ligaments), which represents a large segment of the arthroscopy market.
MectaLock All-Suture Anchors are indicated for the repair of the labrum of the hip and shoulder, as well as rotator cuff and biceps tendon repair. MectaTap TI Suture Anchors are indicated for rotator cuff and biceps tenodesis repair. The MectaFix CL Fixation Button with Continuous Loop is indicated for use in reconstructive treatment and extra-cortical femoral fixation during anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. The product design eliminates the number of sutures needed by combining the pulling and flipping suture.
These new products represent another important step in the expansion of Medacta's Sports Medicine footprint. With its sports medicine portfolio expansion, Medacta continues to create innovative products for the treatment of ligament, tendon and muscular injuries, in order to guarantee a healthy and active lifestyle for every patient.
