With profits margins rapidly shrinking and the threat of alternatives becoming a huge challenge, companies operational in the field are focusing on expansion across emerging economies where the high prevalence of cardiovascular diseases is leading to a huge surge in open-heart surgeries. An instance of this would be Medtronic's acquisition of Covidien plc., an Ireland-based healthcare company and manufacturer of medical devices and supplies, in 2015. The acquisition helped the former gain benefits such as expanding geographical access to a high-growth potential region and lower operational costs. Transparency Market Research states that the global market for Surgical Sutures will exhibit a 3.9% CAGR from 2017 to 2025, rising to a valuation of US$5,080.1 mn by 2025. North America to Retain Leadership Position in Terms of Revenue Contribution On the basis of product type, the segment of absorbable sutures, which accounted for a nearly 60% of the overall market in terms of revenue contribution in 2016, is expected to remain the leading segment throughout the forecast period. The segment is expected to offer an incremental opportunity of nearly US$880 mn between 2017 and 2025. Geographically, the North America market dominated the global market in 2015, accounting for a nearly 35%. Factors such as the rising numbers of orthopedic surgeries and the high per capita expenditure on healthcare will continue to drive the strong demand for surgical sutures in the North America market throughout the forecast period. The rising global demand for surgical sutures is chiefly attributed to increasing numbers of surgical procedures, surging global population, rapidly expanding geriatric population base across developed and developing economies, rising disposable incomes, and the rising willingness of the global population to spend on healthcare and wellness. Technological advancements enabling the development of suture materials capable of improving wound closure time and tissue approximation, which add more value to the final result of surgeries, are also fueling the uptake of surgical sutures across the globe. Moreover, the vast improvements observed in healthcare facilities such as the rising numbers of clinics and hospitals, especially in developing economies, are also intensifying the growth opportunities of the global surgical sutures market. However, certain factors, such as the availability of other advanced wound closure materials and the burgeoning demand for minimally invasive procedures could hamper the growth prospects of the global surgical sutures market to some extent during the forecast period. The rising demand for precision surgical sutures and the rising number of vendors, especially in several developing economies where a number of local manufacturers offer surgical sutures at significantly low prices, have intensified price wars. The need to offer products at low costs to survive in such environment is adversely affecting the profit margins of leading players, which is consecutively bringing down funds usually invested in R&D activities and eventually resulting in the lack of innovative products in the global market. This analysis of the global surgical sutures market is based on a recent market research report published by Transparency Market Research, titled "Surgical Sutures Market (Product Type - Absorbable Sutures (Natural Sutures and Synthetic Sutures) and Non-absorbable Sutures (Nylon Sutures, Polypropylene Sutures, and Stainless Steel Sutures); Application - General Surgery, Gynecological Surgeries, Cardiovascular Surgeries, Orthopedic Surgeries, Other Surgeries; End-users - Hospitals, Specialty Clinics, and Ambulatory Surgery Centers) - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2016 - 2024."

(PRLEAP.COM) Louisville, KY - May 12, 2017 - Dr. Stacie Grossfeld - one of Louisville, KY's Top 10 Orthopedic Physicians - is now offering subchondroplasty procedures to help ease pain for patients suffering from osteoarthritis, bone marrow edema, or insufficiency fractures in their knees. Dr. Grossfeld has been successfully practicing this minimally invasive procedure for the past year at Orthopaedic Specialists PLLC in Louisville, KY, and she wants to raise awareness of the benefits subchondroplasty offers to patients suffering from knee bone and joint degeneration.In the past, studies have shown that patients with osteoarthritis, bone marrow edema, or insufficiency fractures in their knees suffer from accelerated joint degeneration . If these health issues are targeted and treated with subchondroplasty, pain in the affected areas can be reduced and joint degeneration can be slowed down.Dr. Grossfeld is always trying to find innovative ways to reduce the number of patients that come into her office to undergo knee joint replacement surgery. An interesting research study authored by Scher et. al. in 2008 revealed that patients who showed signs of osteoarthritis, bone marrow edema, or insufficiency fractures on their MRI scans were nine times more likely to need another replacement over a three year time period. Through subchondroplasty, Dr. Grossfeld is able to safely delay knee joint replacement surgery until patients are older and less active.Subchondroplasty is a minimally-invasive, outpatient surgical procedure that is done in an operating room. Since bone marrow lesions cannot be detected or diagnosed using x-rays, MRI scans are used to map and locate the lesions. Using the preoperative MRI scan as a mapping device, the knee joint is scoped arthroscopically during the surgery.Once the lesions are located, Dr. Grossfeld performs arthroscopic debridement to remove damaged cartilage and bone from the affected area before using a trocar needle to inject liquid synthetic calcium phosphate bone filler where the bone marrow lesion is located.Removing the damaged cartilage and bone prior to injecting the liquid synthetic calcium phosphate bone filler is part of the surgical process due to a two year study performed by Drs. Steven Cohen and Peter Sharkley from the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, PA. These researchers found that patients who underwent subchondroplasty after arthroscopic debridement experienced significant reductions in pain for up to two years postoperatively compared to patients who did not undergo the same procedures.By injecting the affected area with synthetic calcium phosphate bone filler, the bone marrow lesion in the area of the compromised bone "heals". It takes 8 minutes for the bone filler to set and harden. Once the filler is hardened, the arthroscopy is completed. Following surgery, patients are able to bear weight on the knee joints and resume activity.The critical benefit of the subchondroplasty procedure is that patients who receive the injections are not compromised if they are to ever need knee joint replacement surgery . Subchondroplasty is proven to delay knee joint degeneration, ease osteoarthritis pain, and heal bone marrow lesions. Dr. Grossfeld offers subchondroplasty to patients who are looking to ease knee joint pain without undergoing major surgery or affecting their active lifestyles.Orthopedic surgeon Dr. Stacie Grossfeld first became interested in orthopedics thanks to her love of competitive sports. While she was growing up in northern Wisconsin, Dr. Grossfeld was an active cross country ski racer and a competitive cyclist. Throughout high school, she ran cross country, as well as track, and her love for fitness and sports that first got her interested in orthopedics is still strong today.After graduating from the University of Louisville School of Medicine, Dr. Grossfeld completed her internship and residency at the University of Minnesota before accepting a fellowship in sports medicine at the Fowler-Kennedy Sports Medicine Center in London, Ontario, Canada. Now, she is double-board certified in orthopedic surgery and sports medicine through the American Board of Orthopedic Surgeons and runs a private practice, Orthopaedic Specialists PLLC, in Louisville, KY.Outside of work, Dr. Grossfeld is an active philanthropist and mentor in her community. She spends time working at her alma mater as an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery, participates in the University of Louisville's Guaranteed Entrance to Medical School (GEMS) program by offering students the opportunity to learn more about orthopedic surgery, and serves on the board of various area organizations including the YMCA and the Louisville Sports Commission . She also enjoys playing tennis, cycling, weightlifting, and spending time with her family.Orthopaedic Specialists PLLC offers two convenient locations in Louisville, KY . Patients receive treatment options for a wide range of sports injuries and orthopedic conditions including: knee injuries and reconstruction, shoulder injuries and reconstruction, sports medicine, foot and ankle injuries, elbow injuries, hip pain, ACL injuries, and much more. Additionally, Dr. Grossfeld routinely performs arthroscopic rotator cuff repairs, ACL reconstructions, platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections and subchondroplasty procedures.If you or someone you love is experiencing knee joint pain and is interested in learning more about alternative options to help reduce pain and regain mobility, contact Dr. Stacie Grossfeld at Orthopaedic Specialists PLLC today.

News Article | March 17, 2017

Spinal deformity is caused due to unnatural curvature and it takes place mostly due to any defect, or damage caused to the spine. Patients who are suffering from spinal deformity are at greater risk of dislocation following a hip replacement surgery if a new study is to be believed. The study was conducted by orthopedic surgeons of the NYU Langone Medical Center. The research includes a detailed observation of the affects of spinal deformity on the pelvis. It states the risks which are involved in such cases, while surgeons try to attach the artificial hip during a replacement surgery. During a hip replacement surgery, the surgeon attaches an artificial joint which includes a socket and a ball to the natural sockets located in the pelvis of the patient. Surgeons have tried to attach the socket or the acetabular cup adjoining the pelvic bone, which according to them is a safe zone or is a place where there are less chances of dislocation. This process has been used by surgeons for years. However, a new study suggests that attaching the artificial cup at the safe area is not sufficient to avoid dislocations in patients suffering from deformity. During the research, the investigators studied 107 patients who had been affected with sagittal spinal deformity. They also reviewed 139 patients who had undergone a hip replacement surgery. The detailed report of the measurements of the patients taken before and after the surgery were analyzed. The researchers studied the dynamic changes which took place in the acetabular cup position, and also inquired the instability rate in the patients who underwent hip replacement surgery. The investigators found that the dislocation rate is 8 percent for patients who are suffering from some kind of spinal stenosis. About 5.8 percent patients required another operation because of the reoccurrence of the dislocation. "The fact that high rates of dislocation occurred in patients with 'safe zone' placement of their artificial hips implies that our understanding of what defines acceptable acetabular positioning for these patients remains questionable," said Jonathan Vigdorchik, Assistant Professor of Orthopedic Surgery in NYU Langone. These findings have led orthopedic surgeons at NYU Langone to work together with other spine surgeons. They intend to work on planning preoperative measures, which should be taken to achieve the best possible results for hip replacement surgeries. The researchers are also planning to examine ways through which further dislocation risks, that are involved in hip replacement surgeries, can be reduced. This research was presented at the at the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) 2017 Annual Meeting in San Diego, California on March 17. The study is available online in the Journal of Arthroplasty. © 2017 Tech Times, All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
