Zimmer Biomet Receives FDA Clearance of JuggerStitch Meniscal Repair

By Julie A. Vetalice

Zimmer Biomet gained FDA 510(k) clearance to market the JuggerStitch™ device for meniscal repair.

Unlike traditional knotted meniscal fixator repair that use hard plastic anchors and surface knots JuggerStitch offers a less invasive, all-suture, knotless approach to reduce the risk of future complications from tissue damage.

The JuggerStitch implant features two soft anchors connected by a knotless, self-locking suture loop to control of the tissue compression at the repair site, as opposed to implants that use a sliding knot to lock the repair.
