Smith & Nephew NOVOSTITCH Meniscal Repair Study Update -

One-year results from a study of Smith & Nephew's NOVOSTITCH Meniscal Repair demonstrated a success rate of 91.7% (reoperation rate of 8.3%), and significant improvement in knee pain and function in all patient reported outcomes including Knee injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS), International Knee Documentation Committee (IKDC), Lysholm and Tegner scores. The STITCH Study is a prospective clinical trial examining effectiveness in the repair of Horizontal Cleavage Tears. The trial enrolled 30 patients with meniscal tears at eight U.S. sites. STITCH will continue to follow patients for two years post-op. (Smith & Nephew, 10/9/19)
