— Global Lower Extremities Market 2017-2021 is growing popularity of MI procedures. Traditional open surgeries can cause post-operation complications such as pain, partially collapsed lungs, blood clots, fatigue, muscle atrophy, and infections. The anesthesia administered before surgeries can cause nausea, sore throat, confusion, and sleepiness. To reduce such complications, medical facilities have started implementing MI techniques in their surgical procedures. Complete report on lower extremities market spread across 70 pages, analyzing 3 major companies and provides 58 data exhibits is now available at http://www.reportsnreports.com/reports/966148-global-lower-extremities-market-2017-2021.html . The report, Global Lower Extremities Market 2017-2021, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. This report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market. According to the lower extremities market report, one driver in market is hip replacement procedures in UK. The joint replacement surgeries such as hip and knee replacement and revision procedures are increasing the need for lower extremity products in the market. For the replacement procedure, artificial implants are used, which replaces the joints in hip and knees. In 2002, the National Joint Registry was set up by the Department of Health and Welsh Government, UK. The registry collects the orthopedic reconstruction data from the NHS and procedures performed in the NHS hospitals. According to the National Joint Registry, the number of revision hip replacement procedures performed in 2014 and 2015 were 8,176 and 7,214, respectively. For hip replacement revision cases, a dip in the number of cases was observed in 2015 owing to the increased use of advanced lower extremity products. The analysts forecast global lower extremities market to grow at a CAGR of 7.66% during the period 2017-2021. Key players in the global lower extremities market: DePuy Synthes, Stryker, and Zimmer Biomet. Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Active Implants, Acumed, Arthrex, Avitus Orthopaedics, Biotech Limb and Brace, Bioventus, Bone Therapeutics, Bone Biologics, Ceramisys, ConforMIS, CONMED, CollPlant, DJO Global, Evolutis, Exactech, FH Orthopedics, Graftys, ICONACY Orthopedic Implants, Integra LifeSciences, implantcast, Isto Biologics , Lima Corporate, Medtronic, Merete Group, Össur, OsteoMed, Orthofix, Orthogem, Promedics Orthopaedic, Regenexx,, RTI Surgical, Sigma Graft, Silver Bullet Therapeutics, Skye Biologics, Smith & Nephew, Stanmore Implants Worldwide, Surgical Appliance Industries, Wright Medical Group, and Xtant Medical. Further, the report states that one challenges in market is high procedure cost. Hospitals and surgical centers are under constant pressure to deliver quality care at low cost. However, this has become difficult due to the implementation of advanced procedures that involve the use of sophisticated devices. Hospitals and ASCs need to consider various procurement processes and budget allocation considerations before purchasing such devices. To increase their budget, hospitals sometimes implement the procedure cost, which can be high for the individuals. It increases cost burden on them, which hinders the market adoption. High procedure cost can impact the market growth negatively. About Us: ReportsnReports.com is single source for all market research needs.

A prosthetic device for use as an artificial meniscus is disclosed. The prosthetic device restores stress distribution, stability, and function to the knee joint after removal of the damaged natural meniscus. In some embodiments, the prosthetic device includes an anti-migration feature that inhibits extreme movement within the joint while permitting free floating over a significant range. In one aspect, the anti-migration feature is an enlarged anterior structure or a posterior meniscus remnant engaging channel while in another aspect, the anti-migration feature includes a tethering member. Still further, removable radiopaque features are provided to enhance trialing of the implant prior to final implantation within the joint.

A prosthetic device that may be utilized as an artificial meniscus is disclosed. The prosthetic device can restore shock absorption, stability, and function to the knee after the damaged natural meniscus is removed and replaced with the prosthetic device. In some embodiments, the meniscus includes an integral fixation anchor and additional features that minimize the requirement for modification of the implant for proper fit during surgery.

A prosthetic system for use as a partial unicompartmental artificial knee replacement system. In one form, an artificial femoral bearing component is implanted along with a floating meniscus component that is configured to cooperate with the femoral bearing component to move through a plurality of translational and rotational positions as the knee rotates through a variety of angles. In another form, an artificial tibial bearing component is implanted along with a floating meniscus component that is configured to cooperate with the tibial bearing component to move through a plurality of translational and rotational positions as the knee rotates through a variety of angles.

Methods of selecting and implanting prosthetic devices for use as a replacement meniscus are disclosed. The selection methods include a pre-implantation selection method and a during-implantation selection method. The pre-implantation selection method includes a direct geometrical matching process, a correlation parameters-based matching process, and a finite element-based matching process. The implant identified by the pre-implantation selection method is then confirmed to be a suitable implant in the during-implantation selection method. Methods of implanting meniscus prosthetic devices are also disclosed.

A prosthetic device for use as an artificial meniscus is disclosed. The prosthetic device restores shock absorption, stability, and function to the knee joint after removal of the damaged natural meniscus. In some embodiments, the prosthetic device is pre-tensioned to improve the fit of the prosthetic device within the knee joint and, thereby, maximize the contact area of the load-bearing surfaces to distribute loading through the prosthetic device in a manner substantially similar to that of a healthy natural meniscus. In some embodiments, the pre-tensioned prosthetic device is smaller, or scaled-down, relative to the size of a healthy natural meniscus.
