Interphalangeal Fusion Market Intelligence Report Offers Growth Prospects

Posted by vakhas on August 21st, 2019

The rising incidence rate of hammertoe and arthritis is the prime driver of the market growth. According to Center for Disease Control, an estimated 54.4 Million U.S. adults suffer from arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, lupus or fibromyalgia annually. CDC further predicts that an estimated 78 Million U.S. adults will suffer from arthritis by 2040. The percentage of the older population, aging 65 years or older, suffering from arthritis is a staggering 49.6% with osteoarthritis being the most common form, affecting an estimated 31 Million Americans per year. According to the National Foot Health Assessment about 3% of U.S. adults aged 21 and older, reflecting approximately 7 Million people, suffered from hammertoe in 2015. Thus, a large and sustainable market exists in the region, which is easily comprehendible.

Interphalangeal fusion or arthrodesis is a surgical technique for immobilizing the distal or proximal joints of hands or legs for the treatment of pain, deformity or instability of the joint resulting from degenerative, inflammatory or posttraumatic disorders such as hammertoe and arthritis.
