DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Japan Market Report for Orthopedic Navigation Systems 2017 - MedCore" report to their offering.
IGS systems are not standard of care in orthopedics. This is due to competing technologies, such as patient-specific cut blocks, which also incorporate pre-operative imaging, as well as pressure sensors. Globally speaking, cut blocks saw a rise in popularity and adoption for several years; however, some hospitals have found IGS systems to be more cost-effective, and this alternative has not been considered as much of a competitor since 2014. Robotic systems are also expected to create competition, with companies such as Stryker beginning to sell these systems alongside traditional ones.
However, the high price and recent appearance of this technology will prevent it from entirely displacing non-robotic navigation in the near term. Surgeons who have adopted navigation systems for orthopedics generally keep using the system due to clinical benefits, such as reduced revisions. However, surgeons who prefer other technology argue that navigation systems are too cumbersome, too expensive and the added costs do not outweigh the benefits over the other technologies.
Nevertheless, the complexity of TKA and THA procedures means that navigation technology can provide concrete clinical and economic benefits.
