MediPoint: Total Wrist Reconstruction - US Analysis and Market Forecasts

SummaryInjuries to any of the bones, ligaments, tendons or nerves in the wrist joint can cause pain. Severe arthritis is the most common condition for patients considering a total wrist replacement surgery. Two major categories of arthritis may affect the wrist joint, namely osteoarthritis and rheumatoid or inflammatory arthritis. Post traumatic arthritis is another reason for the onset of osteoarthritis years later after trauma to the joint. Finally another indication for wrist pain and dysfunction includes carpal tunnel syndrome.The growth rate is moderate for the adoption rate of these devices and will be due to a slow and gradual adoption rate, with the US to be one of the major countries to lead the way. For TWF, the trends are similar, though with lower growth rates.
