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.

Cartilage Repair Market Analysis, Size, Trends | 2019-2025 | MedCore

Industry Trends The cartilage repair market is seeing significantly more growth in the European countries than in the United States. Microfracture procedures are by far the most common type of operation to treat cartilage damage and account for up to 86% of all cartilage repair procedures in the United States. Microfracture involves the use of

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.

Spinal Endoscopy Market Analysis | Europe | 2017-2023 | MedCore

Spinal endoscopy can be selected for a number of reasons, including observing epidural anatomy and pathology, targeted epidural delivery of drugs and the illumination and visualization of tissues of the epidural space in the spine for assisting diagnosis. More commonly, however, spinal endoscopy is used as a minimally invasive approach to discectomies, laminectomies and foraminotomies.

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.

Minimally Invasive Instrumentation Market Analysis | Europe | 2017-2023 | MedCore

Spinal instrumentation is used to stabilize the spine and carry out the procedure during minimally invasive spinal procedures. One major focus is 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. Many of the same instruments used in standard spinal fusion may be used here.

Minimally Invasive Pedicle Screws Market Analysis | Europe | 2017-2023 | MedCore

Pedicle screws provide a means of stabilizing a spinal level during a fusion procedure. The screws themselves do not fixate the levels, but act as firm anchor points that can then be connected with a rod. Pedicle screws can be placed at two or more consecutive spine levels. A short rod is subsequently implanted in order to connect the screws. The screw and rod construct prevents motion at the levels that are being fused.

Minimally Invasive Facet Fixation Market Analysis | Europe | 2017-2023 | MedCore

The purpose of spinal fusion is to grow one or more vertebral bodies together to form a fused bone in order to treat certain pathologies. Plates, posterior fixation devices and interbody devices exist to help stabilize the spine while it fuses and heals. Traditionally, these devices have been implanted through open surgery; however, a growing number of these devices are being implanted using minimally invasive surgery (MIS) techniques. MIS greatly reduces surgical damage to the patient and is much less invasive than an open procedure. MIS for spinal fusion is made possible by complex and innovative surgical technology, allowing implantation of posterior screw/rod and interbody devices with minimal surgical damage or harm to the patient.

Minimally Invasive Interbody Devices Market Analysis | Europe | 2017-2023 | MedCore

Interbody (IB) devices are designed to replace the intervertebral discs of the spine; this enhances stability in the region and promotes fusion between the two vertebral bodies. These devices are threaded, allowing them to be used in conjunction with bone graft material. Over time, the packed graft is gradually replaced by natural bone, forming a solid piece. IB fusion procedures typically add a posterior fixation device to the associated level. These procedures are often referred to as 360° fusions, as surgeons will implant interbody devices from an anterior approach and flip the patient over to implant a posterior pedicle screw device. This combination increases the fusion success rate over standalone interbody fusion device implantation without the addition of fixation devices.

Spine endoscopes are visualization instruments that allow for a minimally invasive approach to various procedures and resemble other arthroscope and laparoscope devices. By allowing direct visualization into the spinal canal, these endoscopes facilitate the investigation of nerve compression, inflammation, scarring or abnormalities in the spinal space.
