Cranial Implants Market Overview and Introduction
The human head is made to bear a certain amount of load and it can be subjected to diverse impactful loadings. These loadings could be caused by injuries, falls or road accidents, etc. These impacts may culminate in skull fracture, and in certain cases, part of the skull is required to be replaced by a medical implant. Road accidents or injuries, or injuries resulting from trauma may also result in brain damage or swelling, which can be treated by decompressive craniectomy. Cranioplasty is a neurosurgical procedure that is used to repair cranial defects resulting due to traumatic brain injury (TBI), brain tumors, and hemorrhagic diseases. Cranioplasty is conducted with the assistance of cranial implants. Earlier, various types of materials were used for cranioplasty. With the advent of technological advancements, novel materials and technological interventions, providing specificity for the patient population according to the treatment and surgeon discretion is now possible.
Technological advancements in the field of cranial implants are boosting the growth of this market. The growing demand for customized implants that offer efficient and effective implant solutions that ensure better patient outcomes are further spurring the technological advancements. Patients and doctors alike are looking out for more cost effective solutions that offer choice of options in terms of materials and offer efficient restoration of the cranial defects. There has been a rise in the number of Trauma cases globally, due to injuries or accidents. According to The American Association for the Surgery of Trauma (AAST), traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the single substantial cause of death from injury, in the U.S. According to The American Association for the Surgery of Trauma, there are over 5 million people in the US living with disability from TBI at an estimated cost of over $37.8 billion per year. These are some of the factors boosting the growth of the cranial implants market. There are varied complications that are associated with cranial implants, such as, bleeding, risk of infection, implant fractures and adverse scarring. Lack of pertinent care during and post-surgical implantation can lead to potential implant failures and compromise the healing process, thereby impeding the growth of the cranial implants market.
