The major driving force behind growth in the MIS pedicle screw market is the perceived physiological benefits of minimally invasive surgery to the patient. These include reduced trauma, shorter hospital stays, lower post-operative medication use and quicker return to work. The MIS pedicle screw market is expected to increasingly cannibalize revenue from the traditional cervical and thoracolumbar fixation markets.
Pedicle screws provide a means of stabilizing a spinal level during a fusion procedure. The screws themselves do not fixate the levels, but act as firm anchor points that can then be connected with a rod. Pedicle screws can be placed at two or more consecutive spine levels. A short rod is subsequently implanted in order to connect the screws. The screw and rod construct prevents motion at the levels that are being fused.
