The NUsurface® Meniscus Implant

The NUsurface® Meniscus Implant is a meniscus replacement in patients with persistent knee pain following medial meniscus surgery. Meniscus replacement has the potential to fill the gap between minimally invasive meniscus repair and total knee replacement. The implant is made from polycarbonate-urethane (PCU) – a medical grade plastic. As a result of its unique materials and composite structure and design, it does not require fixation to bone or soft tissues. The NUsurface Implant mimics the function of the natural meniscus and redistributes loads transmitted across the knee joint.

The NUsurface Meniscus Implant has been used in Europe under CE Mark since 2008 and Israel since 2011. The SUN and VENUS U.S. clinical trials completed enrollment in June 2018, and Active Implants is expecting to file for regulatory approval in the U.S. in the next two years.
