There is a greater variety of treatments available for hand and wrist conditions compared to larger anatomical areas of the body. The distinction between traumatic devices and reconstructive devices are a bit obscured, as there is overlap in indications. This is especially true for anatomies that are distal to the wrist joints. In particular, the distal radius plate market, which is almost solely used for traumatic fracture treatment, is also used for reconstruction of the hand and wrist. The hand and wrist market is segmented into the following devices:
Total Wrist Joint Replacements
Distal Radius Plates
Distal Radioulnar Joint Implants
Shoulder devices are considered a small joint in this report. However, they are sometimes classified as large joints because they are often marketed in a similar manner to hip and knee implants, but have historically exhibited market revenue growth rate similar to devices for the distal extremities.
Shoulder reconstruction devices discussed in this report include:
Total Joint Replacements
Partial and Fracture-Type Implants
Shoulder Implant Revisions
The full report suite on the Indian market for small bone and joint orthopedic devices includes shoulder reconstruction devices, elbow reconstruction devices, hand and wrist devices and foot and ankle devices. The shoulder reconstruction device market is further segmented into total shoulder implants, reverse shoulder implants, hemi-shoulder implants and resurfacing shoulder implants. The elbow reconstruction device market is segmented into total elbow implants and radial head implants. Additionally, the total elbow implant market is segmented into semi-constrained total elbow implants and unconstrained total elbow implants. The hand and wrist device market is segmented into wrist fusions and distal radius plates. Finally the foot and ankle device market is segmented into total ankle implants, ankle fusions, and foot and ankle external fixations.
The wound and tissue management market includes wound closure devices, moist dressings, antimicrobial dressings, traditional dressings, compression bandages, hemostats, tissue sealants,
anti-adhesion products and negative pressure wound therapy. In 2015, the type of wound care varied by region and by hospital type in India.
The peripheral vascular device market includes stents, percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) balloon catheters, embolic protection devices, stent grafts, surgical grafts, inferior vena cava filters,
diagnostic and interventional catheters, diagnostic and interventional guidewires, introducer sheaths and vascular closure devices. Several of these devices can be used for treating either coronary arterial or
peripheral arterial disease (PAD), but only those used for peripheral procedures are included in this report. Older individuals and those who are obese have a higher risk of developing PAD. As a result of the
general increase in peripheral procedures and their relatively low cost, the market for PTA balloons is expected to grow rapidly in India over the forecast period.
