Orthopedic Large Joint Devices Market Overview | Japan | 2016-2022 | MedView

Japan has a population of roughly 127 million and a GDP of $4.7 trillion and has a very large and growing elderly population. This characteristic is the main driver of procedures and thus market growth in the country. Due to the large elderly population, the government closely regulates reimbursement rates and thus affects the average pricing of medical devices. This typically results in decreasing product prices.


Orthopedic Large Joint Devices Market Overview | Global | 2018-2024 | MedView

Reconstructive implants are grouped into four broad categories: primary (total) replacement, partial replacement, resurfacing and revision.
Total joint replacement (TJR) involves replacing both sides of the natural joint. These devices are the most frequently used reconstructive procedures in the United States.
Partial joint replacements restore one side or a portion of the joint. These procedures have the advantage of preserving more bone and soft tissue but have historically been prone to a higher complication rate than total joint replacements. Partial replacement, also known as hemiarthroplasty, provides an alternative to joint fixation, or arthrodesis, in some instances of skeletal trauma.
Joint resurfacing attempts to preserve as much of the original bone stock as possible by placing a cap over the diseased joint surfaces. The cap is anchored by a short stem within the bone. These procedures are performed more frequently in younger patients, as the preservation of bone stock allows for better outcomes when the implant is eventually replaced later in life.
Revision implants are not a specific product type but refer to the replacement of implanted devices that have either reached the end of their useable lifespan or have become loosened through trauma or pathology. This may entail either the replacement of part of the implant or the entire implant. In general, revision implants require longer stems to anchor in the bone. Conservative estimates indicate that 15 years is an appropriate lifespan to expect from an implant regardless of its construction or method of fixation; however, newer devices are likely to exceed that time frame.
If anything, the trend towards younger patients has meant that the market has been even more mindful of preparing for the eventuality of revision because of the increased average lifespan for these surgical candidates.
Implants are subject to their own wear issues. Regardless of the type of construction, there are some basic safety concerns. Like the cartilage that it replaces, the articulating material is subject to wear. The concern remains with debris generation. While the material itself is inert, the body’s immune response to stray fragments creates the potential for osteolysis, the destruction of bone. There are similar concerns with devices using hard-on-hard articulating surfaces, as early ceramic materials were prone to chipping.


Craniomaxillofacial and Thoracic Surgery Devices Market Report Suite | United States | 2015-2021 | MedSuite

This report covers the markets for craniomaxillofacial (CMF) devices and the biologics used in CMF and
neurosurgical procedures including: plates and screws, bone graft substitutes, cranial flap fixation, dural
repair and temporomandibular joint (TMJ). The report also includes products used in thoracic surgery for
sternal closure as many manufacturers often group these products within their CMF portfolio.


Large Joint Devices Market Analysis, Size, Trends | Brazil | 2013-2019 | MedSuite

The orthopedic large joint reconstruction device market includes hip reconstruction devices, knee reconstruction devices and bone cements used to help adhere the implants to bone. Large joint arthroplasty experienced a continued increase in demand in 2012, attributed to the aging Brazilian population and an increased number of patients able to afford these procedures. Procedure growth will rise over the forecast period as older patients are no longer able to postpone elective joint replacement. Hip reconstruction market growth will continue to outpace knee reconstruction market growth throughout the forecast period. Both the knee and hip markets experienced a steep increase in growth in 2012, as more orthopedic products continued to be introduced into Brazil. Unit volumes will continue to grow steadily over the forecast period due to the growing demand for arthroplasty.


Small Bone and Joint Devices Market Analysis, Size, Trends | Brazil | 2013-2019 | MedSuite

The Brazilian small bone & joint orthopedic market is comprised of the shoulder reconstruction, elbow repair, hand & wrist devices and foot & ankle devices market segments. This market is separate from the large joint and trauma markets, although the distinction is sometimes unclear. As a result, defining small joint devices can be challenging. Similar to large joints, many of the small joint devices are involved in elective procedures, and consequently these devices generally command higher selling prices. Conversely, the small joint device market is also similar to the trauma device market, where devices may not have high prices or significant price growth, but are involved in essential surgery and are always in demand. Small joints such as shoulders, elbows, hands and feet have not received as much attention as hip and knee treatments until recently, but have experienced strong and consistent growth because of the clinically underserved areas that they represent.


Orthopedic Braces and Support Devices Market Report Suite | United States | 2012-2018 | MedSuite

The U.S. bracing and supports market includes knee bracing and supports, ankle bracing and supports, spinal orthoses, back soft goods, upper extremity bracing and soft goods and pain management (including cold therapy and pain infusion pumps). Most of these markets are expected to experience slow to moderate growth because of an aging U.S. population, growing prevalence of obesity and osteoarthritis and increasing use of braces as prophylaxis to prevent sporting injuries. The knee bracing and supports market is expected to remain the largest segment, but overall growth will be driven by the spinal orthosis and pain management markets. The spinal orthosis segment is particularly fast-growing due to the strong correlation between an aging population and the incidence of lower back problems that may require spinal orthoses to prevent further injury or control stability post-surgery.
