US Market Report for Disposable Cannulas 2017 – MedCore
Disposable cannulas are used in many arthroscopic procedures to aid in keeping the site of incision open and accessible. Once a cannula is inserted into the site of incision, other arthroscopic instruments are then passed through the cannula, allowing for enhanced access to the joint being operated on. Their role as an access instrument is mainly in difficult-to-access joints such as shoulder and hip and are not typically used for knee procedures. When disposable cannulas are used in easier-to-access joints like the knee, their function is more for fluid management and distention. The cannulas used in hip arthroscopies tend to be longer to allow for easier access into the hip joint. Several companies offer hip cannulas as part of an access instrumentation kit, which is either sold separately or with a hip arthroscope.

General Report Contents Market Analyses include: Unit Sales, ASPs, Market Value & Growth Trends Market Drivers & Limiters for each chapter segment Competitive Analysis for each chapter segment Section on recent mergers & acquisitionsIn 2016, the total disposable cannula device market including those used for hip, shoulder, knee and small joint procedures, was valued at over $36.7 million, a strong increase over the previous year. Growth was driven by a strong uptick in units sold and modest ASP appreciation. Disposable cannulas are used in approximately 40% of PCL repairs, but are not commonly used for other knee procedures. Cannulas are primarily used during rotator cuff repairs and shoulder instability procedures. On average, surgeons use just under two cannulas per case. The use of cannulas is not necessary in ankle arthroscopies; however, they are occasionally used in wrist procedures and elbow arthroscopy. Cannulas are also used in hip procedures. As more surgeons perform hip arthroscopies to expand their patient base, the demand for disposable cannulas will increase. Cannulas are relatively simple in design and innovative products are introduced at a less than average pace compared to other arthroscopic devices. Cannulas are not used in all arthroscopic procedures, which is a significant limiter for this market.
