Limb Salvage Surgery Market Estimated to Flourish by 2026
Posted: Jan 12, 2019
Limb salvage is a surgical procedure where a diseased bone is substituted by a functional limb. The aim of limb salvage surgery is to remove tumors and to maintain stability with minimal complications. Conditions that require limb salvage surgery include trauma, diabetic wounds, stump salvage, and chronic infections. This surgery is economical and effective as compared to amputations in the long run.
Limb salvage surgery is performed through three steps: tumor resections, skeletal reconstructions, and soft tissue reconstructions. Tumor resections is the most critical step. Standard diagnosis procedures of limb salvage surgery are radiography, magnetic resonance imaging, multi-detector computed tomography (MDCT).
The global limb salvage surgery market is primarily driven by factors such as increase in prevalence of bone tumors, peripheral vascular diseases, sarcoma, etc. and rise in cases of trauma. Furthermore, a high rate of diagnosis and treatment of bone tumors and peripheral vascular diseases and increase in health care expenditure are likely to boost the global limb salvage surgery market. However, post-operative infections resulting from limb salvage surgery are anticipated to restrain the global limb salvage surgery market during the forecast period. Availability of health care insurance for limb salvage surgery, increase in R&D expenditure, technological advancements, and mergers and acquisitions are estimated to provide attractive opportunities to the global limb salvage surgery market in the near future.
The global limb salvage surgery market can be segmented based on product, application, end-user, and region. In terms of product, the global limb salvage surgery market can be categorized into metal prosthesis, allografts, and others. The metal prosthesis segment can be further divided into upper extremity prosthesis and lower extremity prosthesis. Based on application, the global limb salvage surgery market can be classified into trauma, diabetic wounds/non-healing wounds, bone tumors, multiple arthroplasties, and others. In terms of end-user, the global limb salvage surgery market can be divided into hospitals, specialized clinics, and others.
