Core Essence Orthopaedics Unveiled New Flexor Tendon Repair System at ASSH 2011

FORT WASHINGTON, Pa., Sept. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Core Essence Orthopaedics, Inc., a medical device company focused on orthopaedic soft tissue and skeletal repair of the extremities, has introduced their novel, surgeon-designed PONTiS™ Knotless Endotendonous Repair System at the 66th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand (ASSH).

As a pioneer of surgical innovation to the upper and lower extremity markets, Core Essence Orthopaedics developed PONTiS to enhance flexor tendon repair procedures. The high volume flexor tendon repair market has been long underserved and lacking surgical enhancements. In addressing this need, the PONTiS' knotless system was designed as a minimally invasive approach that is a simple solution providing increased repair strength, decreased friction and allows for early and active motion protocol.

"PONTiS is unique in that its surgical technique simplifies flexor tendon repairs for surgeons while also delivering a high-strength repair," stated Alan Miller, Co-founder and Executive Vice President of Core Essence Orthopaedics. "As the latest addition to our wide portfolio of orthopaedic extremity products, we believe PONTiS has the ability to set a new standard in flexor tendon repairs."

"The dedicated instrumentation of the PONTiS implant system facilitates a minimally invasive, knotless repair," explained Miller. "Multiple knot throws in a traditional flexor tendon repair tend to be the weakest and bulkiest part of the repair. Our simple knotless system delivers significantly stronger fixation that helps patients achieve early, active motion."
