Total joint replacement constituted a negligible portion of the hand and wrist arthroplasty market in 2012. Fixation (arthrodesis) predominates over fusion, but this segment is not as easy to define as other market segments because of the nature of the devices used. These products are either similar to traumatic fixation devices, or their usage can be substituted with general purpose or dedicated traumatic fixation hardware. This means that there is a degree of overlap between the reconstructive fixation market and the traumatic fixation market.
Further complicating the visibility of the hand and wrist reconstruction market is the fact that the companies that focus on small joints view the market by body part instead of by device type. Rather than categorizing separate trauma and reconstructive lines, their products tend to be better described as hand-specific. Traditional views would group this market segment with trauma fixation products, but it is possible to classify volar plates as small joint devices, as the companies involved are likely to carry both trauma and reconstruction hardware in their product lineups.
