Allosource Receives FDA 510(K) Clearance for Aceconnex™ Pre-Sutured Fascia for Hip Labral Reconstruction and Augmentation

July 14, 2023


AlloSource®, one of the largest allograft providers creating innovative cellular and tissue products to help surgeons heal their patients, today announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s 510(K) clearance of AceConnex Pre-Sutured Fascia for hip labral reconstruction and augmentation. This product reinforces AlloSource’s commitment to providing innovative products to support the overall sports medicine market, including hip arthroscopy.

“AceConnex Pre-Sutured Fascia was designed to help hip arthroscopists efficiently treat their patients by eliminating time and tedious effort associated with suturing in the OR,” said Carolyn Rorick, AlloSource Senior Director Product Development, Innovation and Clinical Affairs. “We spent an extensive amount of time perfecting our design and suturing technique to ensure consistency and that design is now patented.”

AceConnex Pre-Sutured Fascia is a device intended for use as a component in soft tissue surgical procedures where constructs, including those with allograft tissue, are used for reconstruction, replacement, or augmentation of the labrum. The ready-to-use, sterile device will be available in multiple pre-sutured sizes, with trimmable regions that allow for allograft adjustments to match patients’ anatomy. In addition, AceConnex Pre-Sutured Fascia is manufactured to ensure consistency and minimize variability compared to allografts that are manually sutured pre-operatively. For years, fascia allografts have been documented as an effective allograft for labral reconstruction. 1,2,3

“AceConnex Pre-Sutured Fascia is integral to our mission of providing innovative allografts to advance patient healing,” said Dean Elliott, AlloSource President and CEO. “We are proud to be first to market with an FDA cleared pre-sutured fascia device to meet the varying needs of hip arthroscopists and patients.”

Since 2012, surgeons have trusted and implanted AlloSource’s fascia in more than 4,000 labral procedures. For more information on new AceConnex Pre-Sutured Fascia please email
