Bone Screws, also known as Bone Fixation Screws are medical devices made up of titanium or stainless steel that support internal bone fixation during an orthopaedic surgical procedure. Bone screws are most often used for internal fixation to hold bone fragments together or to affix an implant, e.g. plate, to the bone. The material of bone screws is inert, thus these screws do not cause any irritation or allergic reactions inside the body. One can live entire life with bone screws inside the body, as these devices do not cause any physical damage. A screw can be used to compress a fracture surface, fix a plate to bone or it may be used to place and fix an external fixator or internal fixator to bone. A position screw keeps holding in position two fragments together without compression. Bone screw is a highly efficient instrument for the fasciation of a bone fragments by interfragmentary compression, or for fixing a plate, nail, or fixator, to bone.
Bone Screw System Market: Drivers and Restraints
The key contributor to the growth of global Bone Screw System market is increasing number of trauma and orthopaedic disorders specifically associated with teenagers and elderly people. Technological advancements with nanotechnology and robotics has led to the development of biodegradable, auto-dissoluble and affordable bone screws, adding to the growth of the market. However, the complications associated with bone screws such as microbial infection, haematoma, non-union and avascular necrosis etc. have limited the market growth. Drawbacks of bone screws such as to leave holes in bones, surgical removal and airport security add to the limitations.
