KATOR Suture Anchor Gains Additional US Patent -

KATOR received U.S. Patent No. 10,136,883, “Method of Anchoring a Suture,” addressing a novel combination of a knotless suture anchor used with a transosseous suture method. This platform technology is designed to support stronger surgical repair constructs than currently marketed suture anchors, enabling stronger tissue-to-bone repairs with fewer suture anchors. Published results of biomechanical testing have demonstrated the superior performance of KATOR's 2-anchor knotless transosseous repair vs. a 4-anchor, transosseous equivalent.
