FDA clears ConMed's Bio Mini-Revo hip suture anchor

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

ConMed's Bio Mini-Revo suture anchor for repair of the labrum of the hip joint has received US FDA 510(k) clearance. It is used to re-attach the torn labrum to the rim of the hip socket. The labrum is a form of cartilage that usually lines the socket, but it can become torn and detached, leading to hip pain. The Bio Mini-Revo is a bioabsorbable 3.1mm diameter screw-in anchor, which the Utica, New York firm claims has an optimal balance of strength and resorption. The latter quality means that there is no need for a second operation to remove it.
