Smith & Nephew bulks up shoulder repair line:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Smith & Nephew Endoscopy has added two new products to its minimally invasive shoulder repair line. The Bioraptor 2.9 is a bioabsorbable suture anchor used in the repair of torn tissue around the shoulder socket. The Elite Pass arthroscopic suture shuttle provides surgeons with a simple, lightweight tool for rotator cuff repair surgery, eliminating the need for additional instruments or the creation of two pathways to the treatment sites as required in traditional stitching methods. The Andover, Massachusetts company estimates that doctors receive around 4 million complaints of shoulder pain each year, of which 1.5 million will be referred to an orthopaedic specialist.
