Product Description

By far the fastest growing segment is represented by ulnar head replacement. The growth in the ulnar head market is due to increasing penetration. Most distal radioulnar joint surgeries involve a shortening of the ulna, known as a Darrach’s procedure, or radioulnar fusion, known as a Sauvé-Kapandji. Aptis Medical’s dominance of the market revolves around their device’s patent and its associated Scheker method.

Treatment in cases of significant joint wear falls either into replacement or fusion. Joint replacement has the benefit of preserving mobility; however, the design of such implants does not allow the patient to carry heavy loads. Fusion of the joint eliminates diseased joint surfaces by fixing the two sides of the joint together. This also eliminates the natural motion of the joint and places additional stress on the surrounding joints; however, it is advantageous because a fused joint can carry more load than a replaced joint.

Companies Analyzed

Despite Wright Medical’s investment to become a strong player in the foot & ankle market they are the market leaders in the hand digit implant segment, which is the largest in the overall market.
