United States Market Report for Tendon Graft Reinforcement 2017 - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--The "US Market Report for Tendon Graft Reinforcement 2017 - MedCore" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

The rotator cuff is a combination of four muscles and their tendons that cover the head of the humerus. These include the supraspinatus, the infraspinatus, the teres minor and subscapularis muscles. These muscles stabilize the ball of the shoulder within the joint and enable the arm to lift and rotate. The shoulder joint allows for a great range of motion, but at the expense of stability, as it is not directly attached to the axial skeleton in the way that the lower limbs are. The Achilles tendon is a combination of three calf muscle tendons that attach to the calcaneus (heel) bone. These include the plantaris, gastrocnemius (calf) and soleus muscles. These muscles enable the extension and rotation of the foot.

The soft tissue reinforcement grafts used for this indication include allografts (human tissue-derived), xenografts (non-human tissue-derived) and synthetics (composed of synthetic materials). These grafts are designed to reinforce and augment the sutured anatomy mechanically, and to promote cellular in-growth at the repair site for improved healing over suturing alone. The rate of host cell infiltration varies according to the type of material used; greater infiltration is desirable for long-term durability of the repair. These tendon reinforcement grafts can decrease the re-tear rate by as much as 25%.

Tendons have been traditionally repaired with the surgical use of suture anchoring technology to rejoin a torn tendon directly. One issue with traditional tendon repair is the incidence of re-tearing previously operated injuries. This predominantly occurs following procedures involving the repair of the shoulder's rotator cuff tendons and the ankle's Achilles tendon.
