Ortheon Medical has gained US clearance to sell its soft tissue anchor system for repairing torn digital tendons. The Teno Fix system is designed to overcome the limitations of standard suturing techniques by allowing patients to begin active motion therapy more quickly after surgery. This, says the company, leads to an earlier return to normal motion and greatly reduces the need for repeat surgeries caused by scarring and adhesions. The Orlando, Florida firm adds that around 145,000 procedures to repair digital flexor tendons of the hand (with multiple digits repaired) are performed annually in the US alone. The Teno Fix device is already approved for sale in Europe.
