KATOR Receives FDA Clearance for Knotless Suture Anchor


KATOR received a second FDA 510(k) clearance for the KATOR, its PEEK-based suture anchor, expanding the system for use with 2mm high-strength suture tape.

The system was previously cleared by FDA for use with #2 high strength suture. A single KATOR Suture Anchor is now FDA-cleared for use with up to four strands of #2 suture or up to two strands of 2mm wide suture tape.

KATOR combines a transosseous technique with knotless fixation, and can be used to repair torn rotator cuffs or reattach Achilles tendons.
