KATOR U.S. Patent Portfolio Continues to Grow -

KATOR was granted additional U.S. patents related to its suture anchor technology, expanding KATOR's portfolio to seven issued U.S. patents (additional patents pending). The newly issued patents address the company's suture anchor and transosseous methods. KATOR's product line includes the KATOR® Knotless Suture Anchor and BoneStitch™ Transosseous Suture Passer for use in arthroscopic procedures. The knotless anchor is designed to lock more strands of suture than any equivalent size device on the market, and allows for suture tension adjustment after the device is fully seated in the bone. BoneStitch enables a fast, reliable technique to simultaneously create a bone tunnel and pass the suture through. (Source: Surgical Frontiers, 3/5/19)
