Ziptek's First US Implantation of ZipE Suture Button -

Ziptek marked the first U.S. implantation of the ZipE® resorbable knotless suture button. The system received FDA 510(k) marketing clearance in 1Q17, and was launched ex-U.S. in 4Q17. ZipE is deployed like a zip-tie and is designed to create a larger tissue-to-bone contact area, reducing the potential for gap formation and providing a stronger construct to resist rip-through. The company has distribution agreements throughout the U.S. (Ziptek LLC, 6/6/18)
