KFx Medical has received fourth patent for its knotless double row soft tissue repair device from the US Patent Trade Mark Office (USPTO).

The patent No. 8, 267,964 covers the ability of the device in reattaching tissue to and in bone in shoulder, knee, foot and ankle procedures.

KFx Medical president and CEO Tate Scott said three of the company’s patents are involved in its litigation versus Arthrex.

" That case is rapidly proceeding through the court with a trial expected next year," Scott added.

"Quality healthcare depends upon doctors, nurses, and patients having access to the best care, which includes in many cases the latest devices and methods."
