Market Overview

The total wrist replacement market is majorly driven by the increasing aging population and the increasing prevalence of rheumatoid and osteoarthritis. 

According to the International Osteoporosis Foundation, osteoporosis causes more than 8.9 million fractures globally, resulting in an osteoporotic fracture every 3 seconds. The osteoporosis and low bone mass are currently estimated to be a major public health threat for almost 44 million US women and men aged 50 years and older. According to the report published by the US FDA during the year 2017, around 1.5 million U.S. adults have rheumatoid arthritis and 3.0 million U.S. adults are living with gout. An estimated 2,94,000 U.S. children under age 18 (or one in 250 children) have been diagnosed with arthritis or another rheumatologic condition. Hence, the number of osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis is increasing continuously and affecting the population, which is ultimately increasing the demand for total wrist replacement procedures.

Scope of the Report

Wrist replacement surgery is done to help retain or recover wrist movements. It also improves the ability to perform daily living activities, especially if there is arthritis in the elbow and shoulder. During any total joint replacement, the worn-out ends of the bones are removed and replaced by an artificial joint (prosthesis).

Key Market Trends

Total Wrist Fusion Surgery is Expected to Witness a Healthy Growth

Total wrist arthrodesis, also known as total wrist fusion (TWF) is a surgical procedure in which the wrist joint is stabilized or immobilized by fusing the forearm bone with the small bones of the wrist. This procedure is performed to relieve the pain after severe trauma to the wrist. Total wrist arthrodesis may be recommended by the doctor when conservative treatments such as rest, medications, injections and physical therapy do not relieve the pain.

Some of the indications for which TWF is recommended include - 

  • Correction of wrist deformities in patients with spastic hemiplegia
  • Advanced symptomatic arthritis secondary to a degenerative, post-traumatic, inflammatory, or post-infectious condition
  • Joint destruction due to tumors
  • Wrist trauma and instability
  • Unsuccessful wrist reconstruction or arthroplasty with or without joint replacement

TWF surgery results in a high degree of patient satisfaction with respect to pain relief as well as correction of deformity which is the prime factor augmenting the demand for this surgery.
