US nod for ArthroCare's Spartan PEEK suture system

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The Spartan PEEK suture implant system developed by ArthroCare has gained US 510(k) clearance from the FDA. Spartan is a preloaded PEEK threaded anchor designed to help fix soft tissue to bone. Spartan has a 5.5mm screw-in design which provides stronger pull-out strength, particularly in soft bone, and can be used to perform single and double row repairs. Spartan is manufactured from polyether-etherketone (PEEK), a material widely used in orthopaedic implants. The device will be used to reattach rotator cuff tendons to bone, Austin, Texas-based ArthroCare said. More than 400,000 patients undergo rotator cuff surgery each year in the US.
