Smith+Nephew introduced the NOVOSTITCH™ PRO Meniscal Repair System in Europe, following approval under the CE Mark.
NOVOSTITCH PRO is now available in the U.S., Europe, Middle East, Africa and select countries.
The NOVOSTITCH PRO Meniscal Repair System enables surgeons to place stitches arthroscopically in tight joint compartments, using a meniscus-to-meniscus circumferential compression stitch that supports repair of tears that may not have been repaired in the past. Features include an ergonomic and intuitive handle design and visual cues for precise stitch placement and control.
"We are delighted to be able to offer this ground-breaking technology to surgeons in Europe," said Terry Byca, Vice President, Marketing Sports Medicine EMEA, Smith+Nephew. "The NOVOSTITCH PRO Meniscal Repair System's unique capabilities, along with our industry leading All Tears, All Repairs Meniscal Repair portfolio brings us closer to making repair, not removal, the standard-of-care for meniscal tears."
