Why there is Growing Adoption of Arthroscopic Meniscal Surgeries?

Menisci are semi-lunar shock-absorbing cartilages between the femur and tibia. Meniscal surgeries take roughly an hour and include a few minor incisions. It takes a few weeks to recover and rehabilitate. The surgery can help reduce pain, enhance mobility and stability, and help get back to normal activities.

As per a report published in the Journal of Experimental Orthopedics in June 2021, a survey was conducted among ESSKA members that led to an analysis of the national trend in Arthroscopic Partial Meniscectomy (APM) and meniscus repair procedures in their respective countries (France, Belgium, Germany, and Japan).

It was concluded that:

  • In France, APM decreased by 21.4% while the repair rate increased by 320% between 2005 and 2017.
  • In Belgium, APM decreased by 28.6% between 2007 and 2017.
  • In Germany, APM decreased by 30% while the repair rate increased by 55%.
  • In Japan, APM decreased by 91% to 75% while meniscal repair procedures increased from 9% to 25% between 2011 and 2016.

Therefore, Menisci has been a major focus area for arthroscopists, and currently, meniscal repair surgery of the knee is the most common less-invasive arthroscopic surgery and products, as it is highly effective and successful leading to good results.

Will Rising Prevalence of Musculoskeletal Disorders Strengthen Demand for Arthroscopy Products?

As per a World Health Organization (WHO) report in 2021, nearly 1.71 billion people worldwide are suffering from musculoskeletal conditions, with low back pain being the leading cause of disability in around 568 million people.

Increasing prevalence of musculoskeletal conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, back and neck pain, and bone fragility that affect the locomotor system such as muscles, joints, bones, and associated tissues can be diagnosed and treated with arthroscopic devices, which will drive demand for arthroscopy products.

Why is Application of Arthroscopy Products Increasing in Sports Medicine?

The arthroscopy market largely centers around sports and other physical activities where injuries are common. Owing to the benefits such as less muscle damage, faster recovery, and faster rehabilitation, arthroscopic treatment is being preferred over traditional surgeries.

Arthroscopic devices in the field of sports medicine are anticipated to provide huge opportunities to key players. Top suppliers of arthroscopic instruments are focusing on improving visualization with high-definition cameras, providing superior suturing techniques, and making customized suturing materials for specific applications.

According to the National Health Statistics report 2016, globally, around six million injuries occur in children and teens annually, out of which, one-third are sports-related. Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury is regarded as a career-ending injury for professional athletes; however, with the advent of arthroscopy, ACL injury is reconstructed, allowing athletes to return to pre-injury activity levels.

Owing to benefits such as less muscle damage, faster recovery, and faster rehabilitation, arthroscopic treatment is being preferred over traditional surgeries
