Neural foramen is present in between 2 vertebrae with nerve roots in the spine region. There are 2 such neural foramen present on either side of each pair of vertebrae. Precaution should be taken during disk replacement therapy to ensure the neural foramen is not compromised or that the patient is partially or fully paralyzed. Prodisc-C (Depuy Synthes, Inc.) is currently the most desirable artificial disk used in the treatment of cervical degenerative disease in the C3-C7 region. The drug was developed in collaboration with spine surgeons and has undergone comprehensive laboratory and clinical surveillance. Prodisc L is used to replace disks in the L3-S1 region. Charité Artificial Disc (Depuy Synthes, Inc.) is commonly used for the treatment of lumbar disc herniation due to its innovative design and material advantage as it is made of plastic cores and metallic endplates, which help to preserve the stability and alignment of the spine.
Artificial cervical discs implantation is becoming the most preferred surgical procedure due to the increasing prevalence of cervical disc herniation and the fact that this operation is much needed in patients with cross-breeding pain in both arms and headache. Chronic lower back pain and occupational hazards resulting in lumbar osteoarthritis make artificial lumbar discs the most prescribed implant.
Composite artificial discs are favoured for the treatment of disc degeneration complications due to their meritorious material characteristics. It is made from an alloy base that makes it more biocompatible and hemocompatible. Elastic artificial discs will be popular over the projected duration of 2017-2025 as it gives flexibility and integrity to the intervertebral column, which is lost due to aging and its preference in the treatment of transition syndrome.
Rising prevalence of disc degenerative diseases and spinal injuries inflicted on athletes will ensure the dominance of North America in the market for orthopedic artificial discs. Supportive regulatory approvals for orthopedic artificial discs and occupational hazards resulting in cervical and lumbar discs herniations will support the growth of the Asian Pacific orthopedic artificial discs market.
The companies that influence the growth of orthopedic artificial discs market are Alphatec Spine, Inc., Zimmer Holdings, Inc., Arthrocare Corporation, AMEDICA Corporation, DePuy Synthes, Inc., Stryker Corporation, Integra LifeSciences Corporation, Medtronic Plc, Biomet, Inc., NuVasive, Inc. and Orthofix Holdings, Inc.
Key Market Movements:
Increasing prevalence of disc herniation and disc degeneration diseases in geriatric population
Better clinical outcomes and patient compliance leading to expedited approval of orthopedic artificial discs
Occupational hazards in developing countries and motor accidents in developed nations both will boost the orthopedic artificial discs market growth
