The value of the total U.S. market for bioabsorbable trauma devices that are used to treat bone fractures has decreased in 2016. The decline is expected to persist throughout the forecasted period and will be driven by both decreasing units and sliding ASP.
In 1984, bioabsorbable internal fixation devices were used at Helsinki University for the first time as a treatment for fractures and osteotomies of the extremities. Metal plates and screws remain the standard for use in internal fixation, despite the associated risks, including increased infection rates due to bacterial colony formation on the plates, bone atrophy due to stress-shielding (particularly in long bones) and the introduction of growth problems in growing patients. Metal plates and screws must often be removed, requiring a second surgery and exposing patients to the risks of surgery for a second time. Additionally, metal implants interfere with sensitive medical imaging procedures.
