NovoStitch suture passer now available for minimally invasive arthroscopic surgical procedures

It is well established in orthopaedic literature that meniscus repair should be performed whenever possible to prevent long-term degenerative changes in the knee. Use of the NovoStitch technology may allow more patients to be treated with meniscus repair rather than meniscectomy because it is designed to allow surgeons to anatomically compress tears that were previously difficult or impossible to sew.

Company Announces Peer-Reviewed Publication Describing Technique

In addition, the company announced the publication of a peer-reviewed article in Arthroscopy Techniques entitled "The Circumferential Compression Stitch", describing techniques for using the device in meniscus procedures.

The paper, which was authored by Los Angeles-based orthopaedic surgeon Justin D. Saliman, M.D., Ceterix founder and Chief Medical Officer, notes that the technology enables surgeons to "freely sew within the tight arthroscopic environment of the knee and allows placement of suture patterns previously considered difficult, if not impossible, to achieve."
