MicroAire Surgical Instruments Acquires Endotine® (Formerly Owned by Coapt Systems)

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., Aug. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- MicroAire Surgical Instruments is pleased to announce the acquisition of Endotine® bioabsorbable, multi-point, soft-tissue fixation systems for facial aesthetic surgery. Endotine® is a patented system that allows surgeons to attach soft tissue to bone, or to other soft tissue -- using special tines instead of sutures -- thereby avoiding the tissue-strain associated with sutures.

Although Endotine® devices have the holding power of multiple sutures; the system actually has more in common with hook-and-loop systems, than with traditional needle and thread. This unique system allows surgeons to adjust the degree of lift during surgery. The additional strength from Endotine's® multiple fixation-points reduces tissue stretching and potential suture failure in a variety of facial procedures, including brow lifts, midface lifts, face lifts and neck lifts.

Endotine® is bioabsorbable, which means there are no secondary procedures required for implant removal. Endotine® devices hold tissue securely for three to four months and are then absorbed naturally, typically over a twelve-month period.  With seven years of clinical history, including excellent success rates in peer-reviewed publications, clinical trials showed virtually no issues of inflammation or adverse histologic response.

Customers and distributors of Endotine® devices will see no change in the availability of the products. MicroAire is planning to continue the product, invest in the product and grow the brand.

"Many surgeons already know that this is a fantastic product," said Alan Connor, MicroAire's Vice President of Operations. "We're ensuring that manufacturing and distribution processes remain the same, so that customers and distributors have full access to Endotine® products, as they always have. Same people, same location, same contact information. The only change for now will be the addition of the MicroAire logo, and our commitment to supporting and growing this product line."

MicroAire will continue to use the Coapt name on product packaging and some business documents during the period of product registration and transfer to MicroAire.
