Spine Navigation Systems Market Analysis | Europe | 2017-2023 | MedCore
The market for spine navigation systems, or spinal image guided surgery (IGS) systems, is closely linked to that of neurosurgical IGS systems. There are relatively few dedicated IGS systems for spinal procedures. Most spinal IGS procedures are performed using neurosurgical IGS systems with spinal software applications. Because spinal and neurosurgical operations are often performed by the same surgeons, this arrangement has worked well so far. Certain spinal procedures may require specialized instruments; however, these disposable instruments can be used with non-specialized systems that have the appropriate software. Many spinal IGS systems can be used to assist in trauma procedures once equipped with the right software and accessories. Spinal conditions treated with IGS include fractures, metastasis, spinal slip disc and spinal curvature. Spinal imaging software allows surgeons to perform on the thoracic and lumbar regions of the spine, while many have pelvic trauma applications. Recently, there has been a push to develop more dedicated spinal IGS and robotic systems that would be better suited to strictly spinal or trauma surgeries.

There still exists a large potential market due to the fact that many spinal surgeries are still performed free-hand, or as an unguided procedure. This is a result of the varying conditions associated with the intraoperative functionality of the different navigation systems. For some cases, a navigation system can simplify and decrease procedure time.
The use of IGS has not become standard of care in spinal surgeries. Navigation systems require a reference point and due to excessive movement of skin surrounding the spinal column, the rigid spinal anatomy itself is usually used as the frame of reference. One of the main limiters to IGS is the preparation time necessary prior to surgery.
