US Market Report for Cervical Fixation 2017 - Success of CADs Expected to Increasingly Cannibalize Cervical Spinal Fusion Procedures - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "US Market Report for Cervical Fixation 2017 - MedCore" report to their offering.

Non-instrumented fusions use bone tissue to promote growth, but do not incorporate any implant devices into the procedures. Markets for interbody devices, including those used in the cervical region of the spine, are discussed in a subsequent chapter. All procedures and markets in this analysis are instrumented fusions because they involve the implantation of plates, screws, rods, wiring or cable fixation devices.

Posterior procedures are gaining popularity and are expected to increase more rapidly than anterior procedures. Anterior procedures are expected to increase at a slower rate than posterior procedures over the forecast period. Posterior procedures are growing as a result of the growing awareness of the clinical advantages of pedicle screw/rod and occipitocervical based posterior technologies in comparison to traditional posterior wiring systems.

Overall growth in the number of procedures performed is driven primarily by the demographics of the target population requiring spinal fusion, but growth may begin to slow over the forecast period due to the emergence and increasing prevalence of cervical artificial discs (CADs). The success of CADs is expected to increasingly cannibalize cervical spinal fusion procedures because they offer a motion preserving alternative for many cervical fusion cases and do not require accompanying fixation devices.
