The upper arm and elbow external fixation market growth is driven by an increase in fractures due to the aging U.S. population and advancements in infection prevention technologies. Price increases for upper arm and elbow external fixators are largely due to the increasing unit share of premium, specialized fixators. These specialized fixators provide improved patient outcomes, such as a more rapid return to motion.
In many cases, external fixation is used as a temporary treatment for fractures. Because they are easily applied, external fixators are often put on when a patient has multiple injuries and is not yet ready for a longer surgery to fix the fracture. An external fixator provides good, temporary stability until the patient is healthy enough for the final surgery.
