DUBLIN, August 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Craniomaxillofacial Devices Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.
The global craniomaxillofacial (CMF) devices market to grow at a CAGR of 6.50% during the period 2016-2020.
Global Craniomaxillofacial (CMF) Devices Market 2016-2020, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The 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.
An intracranial injury, also referred to as traumatic brain injury (TBI), is a substantial head injury that can damage the brain. Every year, more than 12 million cases of TBI are reported worldwide, of which more than 1.5 million are reported in the US and 1.5-2 million in the UK. Sports-related injuries and road traffic and work accidents are some of the most common causes of TBI. Road accidents account for 50% of all TBIs, vehicle crashes, as well as pedestrians hit by vehicles.
Growing demand for bioresorbable devices will be a key trend for market growth. For CMF internal fixation, metals are majorly used in plating systems. In recent years, for the repair of skull fractures, reconstructive materials and techniques have gained prominence among CMF manufacturers. In CMF surgeries where metallic wires, screws and plates are involved, patients would require another procedure to remove them once the skull bones get fixed. But in case of CMF surgeries where bioresorbable devices like biodegradable wires, screws, and plates are involved, patients do not require another surgery. This proves to be economical and less painful for patients undergoing these surgeries.
According to the report, one of the key drivers for market growth will be research collaboration between manufacturers and medical professionals for customized products. The success of a cranial reconstruction surgery depends on the focus on the reconstruction of the skull as well as the overlying soft tissue. The conventional methods of cranial reconstruction focus more on bone reconstruction and less on the soft tissue, which determines the cosmetic outcome of the surgery. If the reconstruction of soft tissue is not according to the anatomy of the skull, it can lead to a visible deformity post-surgery called persistent temporal hollowing.
So, vendors are collaborating with healthcare practitioners to increase the efficiency of cranial reconstruction surgeries and improve customer satisfaction. Vendors invest in research funding and facilities while the specialists offer their experience and knowledge. The outcomes of such collaborations will improve the patient outcomes in CMF surgeries.
