Medacta announced successful completion of several first-time surgeries using its sportsmedicine products.

In Australia, first surgeries occurred using the MectaLock PEEK hip labral repair anchor and Medacta's Adjustable Button for anterior cruciate ligament repair. In the U.S., first procedures were performed with Medacta's complete hip portfolio, including the MectaLock PEEK anchor with the MectaFlip Intra Articular Expander, Medacta Hip Cannula System and the Hip Access Kit.

The company also received approval under the CE Mark for MectaLock PEEK instability anchors for hip and shoulder labral repair, MectaLock Ti and MectaTap for rotator cuff repair, MectaScrew PEEK interference screw for ligament repairs, Medacta Shoulder and Hip Cannula System, MectaQTH quadriceps tendon harvesting instrument and the Medacta Hip Access KIT for hip arthroscopies.

Medacta entered the sports medicine markets in these countries in July 2019.
