Cayenne introduces second generation device to treat meniscal tears

Sports medicine device company Cayenne Medical has introduced CrossFix II Meniscal Repair System - a second generation device to treat traumatic meniscal tears.

The CrossFix II platform offers a minimally invasive, all-suture meniscal repair that reduces the risk of chondral injury associated with other implantable meniscal devices.

The Meniscal repair system uses the company’s proprietary instantaneous mattress stitch and pre-tied, sliding Hot Knot which replicates the repair of standard open suturing techniques.

Its technique uses suture delivery needles which are available in both curved and straight designs, inserted through a single incision to gain access to multiple tear sites from the inside surface of the meniscus.

Cayenne Medical CEO David Springer said evolving their meniscal repair technology to further enhance performance and cater to specific surgeon needs represents Cayenne Medical’s commitment to provide solutions for the sports medicine market.

"We expect CrossFix II to be as well received as our second generation soft tissue knee ligament reconstruction device, AperFix II, launched only a few months ago," Springer said.

Cayenne Medical also currently offers products that address previously unmet clinical needs in knee ligament reconstruction, including the AperFix II System and iFix System
