Industry Trends In the United States, hyaluronic acid (HA) viscosupplementation is approved only for osteoarthritis of the knee. However, many surgeons also use the injections off-label in indications such as ankle, shoulder and elbow. If market players were to acquire approval in other joints, it would greatly expand the hyaluronic acid market. Continuous growth in
Industry Trends The long-term growth of the market will be strongly driven by the increasing demand for revision surgeries. The revision knee implant segment is the fastest growing of the overall knee replacement device market. The growth rate will continue to increase, which can be attributed to the rise in younger knee implant patients. Since
Industry Trends Foot and ankle medical devices are used to treat a variety of indications, including hallux rigidus, arthritis, Lisfranc fractures and pes planus (flatfeet) to name a few. The devices included in this study are those for the ankle joint, hindfoot, midfoot and forefoot and toe digits. Ankle devices, which include total ankle replacements,
Industry Trends Cost-cutting measures at hospitals and surgery centers continue to drive down the ASPs of the hip replacement market. The long-term market growth will be primarily driven by patient demographics, characterized by an ever-growing aging population and an increasing number of younger patients. Considering the mature nature of the hip arthroplasty market, the development
Orthopedic image guided surgery (IGS) systems are used in procedures such as total knee arthroplasty (TKA), total hip arthroplasty (THA), anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, trauma and corrective surgeries. During these reconstruction procedures, the alignment of the orthopedic implant is critical and IGS systems are capable of reaching the target alignment within 3?, 95% to 98% of the time.
The orthopedic segment of the IGS market has the greatest overall potential due to a growing elderly population in Japan. Over the forecast period, the use of orthopedic IGS systems is set to make inroads into sport orthopedics, expanding to include more shoulder and knee procedures.
The market for spine navigation systems, or spinal image guided surgery (IGS) systems, is closely linked to that of neurosurgical IGS systems. Spinal IGS procedures are performed using IGS systems with both neurosurgical and spinal software applications. Because spinal and neurosurgical operations are often performed by the same surgeons, this arrangement has worked well so far. Certain spinal procedures may require specialized instruments; however, these disposable instruments can be used with non-specialized systems that have the appropriate software. Many spinal IGS systems can be used to assist in trauma procedures once equipped with the right software and accessories. Spinal conditions treated with IGS include fractures, metastasis, spinal slip disc and spinal curvature. Spinal imaging software allows surgeons to perform on the thoracic and lumbar regions of the spine, while many have pelvic trauma applications. Recently, there has been a push to develop more dedicated spinal IGS and robotic systems that would be better suited to strictly spinal or trauma surgeries.
Surgical robotics has tremendous potential to increase the effectiveness of existing procedures and to facilitate novel procedure types. The surgical robotics industry is, in many ways, still in its infancy, with more products in development than currently commercially available on the market. Most new surgical robotic systems are designed for highly specialized medical applications, which is a major draw-back for most facilities. The types of surgical robotic assisted systems covered in this section are: minimally invasive surgery robotic systems and radiosurgery robotic systems.
The elbow naturally operates as a hinge joint, with the majority of the natural range of motion occurring on one plane, although it also includes a rotational component. The joint involves the articulation of three bones: the humerus, the radius and the ulna. The articulation of the head of the radius on the ulna allows for forearm pronation and supination, resulting in the ability to rotate the wrist.
Arthrodesis, or joint fusion, fixes the bones of a joint together and eliminates the joints articular function. It is considered to be the standard in the treatment of arthritis. Motion may be assumed by the surrounding unfused joints to compensate, but the fixation has a side effect of placing these surrounding joints at further risk of degeneration. Joint fusion is accomplished through various metal devices, most of which are similar to those used in internal fixation for traumatic injury purposes.
Arthroplasty is the reconstruction of a joint by means of replacement with an implanted device. Failed joint fusions can be revised, although repeated surgeries are associated with an increased risk of infection and limb shortening.
The wrist is the articulation of the two forearm bones, the ulna and the radius, with the double row of eight carpal bones. There is an articular disc between the dished surface of the radius and the proximal carpal row of bones. Digit joints are classified as:
DIP Distal interphalangeal joint
PIP Proximal interphalangeal joint
MCP Metacarpophalangeal joint
Shoulder devices are considered a small joint in this report; however, they are sometimes classified as large joints because they are often marketed in a similar manner to hip and knee implants, but have historically exhibited market revenue growth rate similar to devices for the distal extremities. Shoulder reconstruction devices discussed in this report include:
Total Joint Replacements
Partial and Fracture-Type Implants
