The meniscus is a crescent-shaped pad of fibrocartilage located between the femur and the tibia. It acts as a shock absorber and prevents friction between the two bones. It also helps stabilize the knee along with the ligaments and protects the articular cartilage of the knee, aiding in the prevention of degenerative arthritis.
The two major surgical methods for meniscal repair are all-inside repair and inside-out (or outside-in) repair. All-inside repair is a newer technique and involves use of hybrid devices that have both suture and implant components. The inside-out repair surgical technique uses only sutures and accordingly is also referred to as suture-repair. More incisions are required in suture repair, which may lead to additional tears and thus all-inside repair is quickly gaining popularity. An additional surgical technique is implant-repair that uses screws or darts to fixate between the tear to help it close. This method is quickly being surpassed by all-inside and inside-out repairs.
In 2013, the European meniscal repair market grew to over €70 million, a X% increase over 2012. This market includes sutures used in inside-out repair, implants used in implant-repair and hybrid systems used in all-inside repair procedures. The meniscal repair market has been steadily growing following the economic downturns of 2008 and 2011.
In 2014, the total U.S. meniscal repair market, including sutures used in inside-out repair, implants used in implant-repair and hybrid systems used in all-inside repair procedures, was valued at over $150 million. This was a X% increase over the previous year. Long-term growth will be driven by the increasing popularity of hybrid devices. The market's growth can be attributed to the suture and hybrid device segments.
