Bone Growth Stimulators Market Analysis | Europe | 2020-2026 | MedCore

Bone is naturally piezoelectric, which means that mechanical stress applied to bone alters its natural electric field. Conversely, an applied electric or ultrasound field will alter the mechanical stress within the bone, thereby stimulating bone growth. It is by this principle that bone growth stimulators work, artificially inducing stress to stimulate bone growth as an adaptive response. All bone stimulation devices, except those offered by Bioventus, are indicated for non-union fractures, which include difficult-to-heal or slowly healing fractures. All external devices can be worn over a cast.

Thoracolumbar Fixation Market Analysis | Europe | 2017-2023 | MedCore

Spinal fusion is a surgical procedure designed to combine two or more vertebrae together, eventually forming a fused bone. Spinal fusion is primarily used for eliminating or significantly reducing the pain caused by abnormal movement of the vertebrae through immobilization. Supplemental bone tissue, either autograft or allograft, is used for promoting bone tissue growth. Fusion is accomplished by using either an instrumented or non-instrumented surgical approach. Instrumented fusions incorporate fixation devices to secure and stabilize the fusion site and interbody devices to fill the intervertebral disc space as well as enhance and promote fusion. Non-instrumented fusions use bone tissue to promote growth but do not incorporate any implant devices into the procedures. Interbody device markets, including those used in the thoracolumbar region of the spine, are discussed in a subsequent chapter. All procedures and markets in this analysis are instrumented fusions because they involve the implantation of plates, screws, rods, wiring or cable fixation devices.

Spinal Vertebral Compression Fracture Market Analysis | Europe | 2017-2023 | MedCore

A vertebral compression fracture (VCF) occurs when the bone tissue of the vertebral body collapses in the spine. There are various causes of VCFs, but the most common is osteoporosis. Typically, the lumbar region of the spine is affected, resulting in the anterior section of the vertebral body collapsing. This can cause the spine to tilt forward. In multi-level cases, kyphosis (hunchback of the spine) can result from a VCF. In addition, VCFs can result from malignancy, infection or trauma to the spine.

Spinal Electrical Stimulation Devices Market Analysis | Europe | 2017-2023 | MedCore

Electrical stimulation devices are used for stimulating bone growth after a spinal fusion procedure. Spinal electrical bone growth stimulators are often used as an adjunct therapy in order to increase the chance of a successful solid spinal fusion. In the United States, electrical stimulation devices are designed specifically for lumbar and cervical fusions. However, some lumbar devices have historically been used off-label to augment the healing process for cervical fusion procedures.

Spinal Surgery Instrumentation Market Analysis | Europe | 2017-2023 | MedCore

Spinal instrumentation is used to stabilize the spine during fusion procedures, typically by lessening the pressure put on the spine until successful fusion has occurred. This ensures that bone growth does not occur in a way which further impedes proper movement, and that growth is as efficient as possible. As a category, spinal instrumentation includes a wide variety of products, including fixation products discussed in the cervical and thoracolumbar fixation segments of this report.

Spinal Interbody Devices Market Analysis | Europe | 2017-2023 | MedCore

Spinal fusion is a surgical procedure designed to combine two or more vertebrae together, eventually forming a fused bone. It is primarily used for eliminating or significantly reducing the pain caused by abnormal movement of the vertebrae by immobilizing them. Supplemental bone tissue, either autograft or allograft, is used for promoting bone growth. A union of two vertebral bodies is referred to as a single-level fusion. Fusion is accomplished by using either an instrumented or non-instrumented surgical approach. Instrumented fusions incorporate fixation devices to secure and stabilize the fusion site, and interbody devices are used for filling the intervertebral disc space to enhance and promote fusion. Non-instrumented fusions utilize bone tissue to promote growth, but do not incorporate any implant devices into the procedures.

Spinal Motion Preservation Devices Market Analysis | Europe | 2017-2023 | MedCore

Motion preservation devices are an exciting and often controversial segment of the spinal implant market. These devices are used for treating pathologies similar to those that spinal fusion procedures address. However, unlike spinal fusion, motion preservation devices act to preserve the natural motion of the spine. Some motion preservation devices are used for treating pathologies that were previously untreatable with traditional fusion procedures, thus creating new markets for spinal implants.

Cervical Fixation Market Analysis | Europe | 2017-2023 | MedCore

Spinal fusion is a surgical procedure designed to combine two or more vertebrae together, eventually forming a fused bone. Spinal fusion is primarily used for eliminating or significantly reducing the pain caused from the abnormal movement of the vertebrae. Supplemental bone tissue, either autograft or allograft, is used for promoting bone tissue growth. A union of two vertebral bodies is referred to as a single-level fusion. Fusion is accomplished by using either an instrumented or non-instrumented surgical approach. Instrumented cervical fusions incorporate fixation devices to secure and stabilize the fusion site and interbody devices to fill the intervertebral disc space as well as enhance and promote fusion. Non-instrumented fusions utilize bone tissue to promote growth, but do not incorporate any implant devices into the procedures. Markets for interbody devices, including those used in the cervical region of the spine, are discussed in other reports. All procedures and markets in this analysis are instrumented fusions because they involve the implantation of plates, screws, rods, wiring or cable fixation devices.

Cartilage Repair Market Analysis | Europe | 2017-2023 | MedCore

Articular cartilage is a connective tissue that lines the ends of bones in joints. It provides shock absorption within the joint and prevents abrasion from occurring to the articular surfaces of bone. Cartilage, in its various forms, is found in intervertebral discs, as the articular lining for joint surfaces and in the meniscal pads of the knees. All types of this tissue are poorly vascularized and, as proper healing requires adequate blood flow, cartilage is one of the slowest healing tissues of the body. Osteoarthritis is cumulative trauma that eventually wears away at cartilaginous surfaces, exposing the underlying bone to additional wear. There are few alternatives to osteobiologic cartilage repair. Damage to cartilage is difficult to treat because the tissue lacks blood supply and has limited capacity for self repair.

Bone Graft Substitutes Market Analysis | Europe | 2019-2025 | MedCore

Bones are biologically active tissues that allow for movement, provide protection for the body’s other organs and serve as a production center for red and white blood cells. When bones are diseased or damaged, bone grafts and bone graft substitutes are used for bridging the resulting void or for providing the support that has been lost. The transplanted (or implanted) material provides a scaffold on which the body can generate new bone tissue, thereby repairing the skeletal system. The most common usage of such materials is for dental implants to replace missing teeth. Within the orthopedic field, however, spinal fusion surgeries are the largest driver of bone graft and bone graft substitute usage. Direct competition for bone graft substitutes comes from bone morphogenetic proteins which, although more expensive, are more effective at stimulating bone growth. Another source of competition is the rise of the motion preservation market for spinal surgery.

Bone Morphogenic Protein Growth Factor Therapy Market Analysis | Europe | 2017-2023 | MedCore

Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) are growth factors that induce the formation of bone after a fracture. In nature, these proteins have a critical role during embryonic development in the formation of the skeleton. There are twenty different BMPs that have been discovered thus far, of which only two, BMP-2 and BMP-7, have been commercialized as bone graft substitutes for use in specific orthopedic procedures. The commercial versions of these products are produced by recombinant genetic engineering, which results in a recombinant human protein. The recombinant human BMP-2 (rhBMP-2) is marketed as a commercial product by Medtronic, Inc. and is called Infuse® (InductOS® in Europe), while BMP-7 has been commercialized by Stryker Inc. and is sold to Olympus under the name of OP-1®. Both molecules mediate the process of osteoblast differentiation. BMP-2 is capable of stimulating immature mesenchymal cells to form into bone, while BMP-7 has been shown to be capable of stimulating cartilage growth.

Minimally Invasive Spinous Process Fixation Market Analysis | Europe | 2017-2023 | MedCore

Several spinal fixation systems exist for stabilizing the spine so that bone fusion can be achieved. The majority of these fixation systems use rods that attach to screws that are threaded into the vertebral bodies or the pedicles. In some cases, plate fixation systems are also used to fuse two adjacent vertebral segments. Current plate fixation systems are designed to function in place of rods and screws, with the advantage of allowing fixation without the need to contour a long rod across multiple segments.

Minimally Invasive Sacroiliac Joint Fusion Market Analysis | Europe | 2017-2023 | MedCore

Studies have shown that over 80% of the population will suffer from lower back pain at some point in their lives. A majority of these cases can be attributed to two main causes: general factors, such as muscle strain, injury and overuse; and specific spine conditions such as herniated discs, degenerative disc disease (DDD), spondylolisthesis or spinal stenosis. Sacroiliac (SI) joint dysfunction was once thought to be a less common cause for lower back pain. However, recent studies have shown that SI joint dysfunction (SIJD) may be responsible for up to 30% to 35% of lower back pain.
