Episurf Gains Patent Approvals in Australia, U.S.

By Julie A. Vetalice

Episurf Medical received a Notice of Allowance from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, entitled “System of designing a guide tool and/or surgical kit tools and/or an implant comprising a positioning mark,” covering features for accurate placement of the company's individualized joint implants.

Episealer® technology pairs an implant with a proprietary set of surgical instruments and a damage marking report for surgical pre-planning.

Further, the company was granted an additional patent in Australia, entitled “Surgical kit for cartilage repair comprising implant and a set of tools.” This addresses the Episealer® Femoral Twin implant and its design, which is commonly applied in cases of elongated cartilage lesions.
