As part of pursuing that mission, CoNextions Medical is committed to supporting surgeon education and research that further advances extremity surgery. One of the studies supported by CoNextions Medical, “Tendon Repairs at the Wrist Utilizing a Novel Tendon Stapler Device: An Efficiency and Biomechanical Study Across Different Experience Levels”, was recently presented at the 39th Annual Adrian E.

The results of the investigator-initiated study lead by Dr. Mendenhall showed that users of varying surgical experience were able to produce faster and stronger tendon repairs with the CoNextions TRTM Tendon Repair System compared to conventional suture repairs in various tendons of the hand and wrist. This preliminary testing demonstrates the CoNextions TR System has the potential to be beneficial in scenarios where multiple tendon repairs are required by reducing operative time and producing repairs stronger than possible with conventional suture techniques.

A premarket notification (510(k)) submission for the CoNextions TR System is currently under review with the Food and Drug Administration and CoNextions Medical is optimistic the device will soon be cleared for use.
