FDA Approves IDE Study of BioPoly RS Partial Resurfacing Knee -

BioPoly received FDA approval to conduct an Investigational Device Exemption clinical study of the BioPoly® RS Partial Resurfacing Knee, used in the treatment of cartilage lesions. BioPoly material combines polymer and hyaluronic acid into a “self-lubricated” polymer that can carry physiological loads without causing damage to other knee tissues, acting as a synthetic cartilage. The system has been implanted successfully in Europe since 2012; in 2016, it received CE Mark approval for use in the shoulder, followed in 2018 for repair of the trochlea. (BioPoly, 11/16/18)
