The European patent office intends to grant another European patent to Episurf Medical for individualized surgical instruments, specifically for a drill guide for use with the Episealer® Femoral Twin implant. This represents the first patent approval within this patent family.
Furthermore, the Femoral Twin implant demonstrates the highest sales volume for Episurf; therefore, the company intends to establish extensive IP protection within this field.
Earlier EU patents have been granted for surgical drilling guide with a functionality for depth adjustments and for a surgical kit addressing cartilage repair, in 2016 and 2018, respectively.
