The majority of conventional hip screws sold in the U.S. are made with stainless steel over titanium. However, there is a slight shift towards titanium usage in this market. Titanium is gaining popularity, owing to the growing acceptance of the higher biocompatibility and lower weight in comparison with stainless steel or cobalt/chrome alloys. The increased costs associated with using titanium products will be a strong factor in the size of the market and its growth.
Hip fracture is a common injury that is more frequent with age and has an immediate impact on the quality of life. The approximate one-year mortality rate after a hip fracture is between 20% and 30%. A 2007 study in the American Journal of Therapy showed that fractures repaired within 48 hours of the traumatic incident had better outcomes than those repaired later
