Intramedullary nailing is a surgical procedure used to repair broken long bones, such as the femur, tibia, and humerus. It involves inserting a metal nail into the medullary cavity of the broken bone to fix the fracture internally. Intramedullary nails provide tremendous stability to fractures and allow early mobilization. They help in faster healing and recovery as compared to other fixation methods like plates and screws. The procedure is minimally invasive and preserves blood supply to the bone.
Market key trends:
One of the key trends in the intramedullary nail market is the growing demand for customized implants. Manufacturers are focusing on developing customized intramedullary nails tailored to the specific anatomical needs of patients. This involves 3D printing and development of patient-specific nails based on pre-operative CT or MRI scans. Customized nails provide a better fit and stability to fractures compared to standard nails. Their usage is increasing in complex fractures involving deformities or osteoporotic bones where a high level of precision is required. This trend is expected to continue and drive the demand for intramedullary nails over the forecast period.
