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

The shoulder is a highly mobile joint that is also inherently unstable to allow for range of motion. This joint is anchored by muscular attachment to the spine in the back and to the sternum (breastbone) through the clavicle (collarbone). The shoulder is not involved in direct load bearing articulation with the axial skeleton.
Plates are like internal splints that hold the broken pieces of bone together. They are attached to the bone with screws. Plates may be left in place after healing is complete, or they may be removed
Screws are used for internal fixation more often than any other type of implant. Although the screw is a simple device, there are different designs based on the type of fracture and how the screw will be used. Screws come in different sizes for use with bones of different sizes. Screws can be used alone to hold a fracture, as well as with plates, rods, or nails. After the bone heals, screws may be either left in place or removed.
Various research studies have shown that shape memory staples are capable of achieving consistent compression across the fusion site with significantly greater maximum force when compared with mechanical compression staples. In fact, mechanical compression staples cause a distractive force that may hinder proper fracture recovery. For this reason, shape memory staples, having properties to sustain sufficient energy for bone fusion, are becoming more accepted by surgeons as the standard of care.
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
