KATOR Suture Anchor Gains Additional US Patent

By Julie A. Vetalice

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 surgeons to achieve 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.

KATOR is incubated and operated by Surgical Frontiers.
