Global Orthopedic Trauma Product Overview 

iData’s global orthopedic trauma market report includes several unique markets: 

  • Plates and Screws: These devices come in various shapes and sizes and are used to immobilize fractures in a variety of locations in the body.
  • Bioabsorbable Plates and Screws: These devices serve the same purpose as regular plates and screws, however, they are manufactured from bioabsorbable materials. 
  • Intramedullary Nails: Intramedullary nails are rod-like devices that are inserted into the central cavity of long bones, including the proximal femur, tibia, ankle, humerus, and forearm.
  • Cannulated Screws: Cannulates screws are a special type of screw with a hollowed center, allowing for precision placement.
  • Intramedullary Hip Screws: IM hip screws are hybrid devices that combine aspects of IM nail and conventional hip screw design.
  • Conventional Hip Screws: Otherwise known as compression hip screws, these are used for the fixation of pertrochoanteric, interotrochanteric, and subtrochanteric fractures of the femur. 
  • Staples: Staple fixation devices are applied across a fracture site for osteotomy and arthrodesis fixation.
  • Bone Pins: In general, bone pins are used for either provisional fixation or definitive fixation.
  • External Fixation: External fixation devices are used to stabilize fractures by rods and pins that attach from outside the body. 
  • Bone Growth Stimulators: Bone growth stimulators are generally used, and have applications for spinal and long bone fusion.
