Fuse Medical (OTC: FZMD) yesterday said that it launched its new suture anchors for orthopedic and sports medicine applications.
The Richardson, Texas-based company launched the Galen Medial and Galen XT Suture Anchors, the Kopis Knotless Anchor and the Vida Interference Screws.
Fuse Suture Anchors are made from PEEK and titanium materials and are designed for the fixation of ligament, tendon, bone or soft tissue to bones in the knee, shoulder, foot/ankle, elbow and hand/wrist. They are loaded on individual inserters with or without integrated sutures or needles, according to the company. Fuse Suture Anchors are designed for single patient use and are disposable to reduce and eliminate processing costs for instrument sterilization.
“The addition of the Galen, Kopis and Vida Suture Anchor product lines provide Fuse Medical with a comprehensive portfolio of sports medicine and extremity offerings for soft tissue fixation,” CEO Christopher Reeg said in a press release. “The launch of this exciting technology facilitates a more complete line of Fuse branded products within all of our specialty categories. Our goal at Fuse is to provide solutions for today’s surgical challenges and platforms to improve surgical outcomes.”
