Artificial Disc Market, Industry Background

Back pain is one the most commonly encountered health complaint in a general physician’s practice. Lifestyle changes, aging population and obesity are amongst the primary reasons for rising incidences of various degenerative disorders. In the United States, Degenerative Disc Diseases (DDD) is the leading cause of pain. DDD is the manifestation of the changes in the nucleus pulposus and the anulus fibrosis due to aging. 

Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) is the most commonly chosen treatment procedure for cervical disc degenerative disease. However, the success of Artificial disc replacement (ADR) surgeries and artificial discs for cervical and lumbar is creating a great shift from ACDF to ADR. The technological advancements in artificial discs enabled better rotational and translational movements, long-term stability of implant, minimal incision surgery and improved QALY (Quality adjusted life year).

Charite artificial disc was first US FDA approved metal on polyethylene device for lumbar artificial disc replacement. The success of the device brought many other players into the market. Since 2005, the metal on biopolymer artificial disc market has witnessed a rapid growth. Prestige, a metal on metal disc, manufactured by Depuy Synthes, was one of the first approved device for cervical disc replacement. Flexible polyurethane/ polyethylene allowed better motion and shock absorption. The metal on polyethylene device makes the insertion of the device easier, thus gaining greater acceptance among medical professionals.
