Ankle fusion nail is used for fixation during arthrodesis of the ankle joint. It is implanted across the ankle joint to fuse the tibia and talus bones for providing stability during bone fusion. Ankle fusion is generally recommended for patients suffering from ankle arthritis, bone fractures, or other conditions affecting ankle movement. The use of ankle fusion nail provides strong stabilization of the ankle during arthrodesis, allowing early weight-bearing and ambulation for patients. This minimizes post-operative immobilization and aids faster recovery.
The global ankle fusion nail market was valued at US$ 630.5 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 8.9% over the forecast period 2023-2030, as highlighted in a new report published by CoherentMI.
Rising demand for minimally invasive surgeries and ankle fusion nail being less invasive compared to traditional plate fixation is expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period. Minimally invasive nature of ankle fusion nails allows for reduced soft tissue dissection, decreased blood loss, and smaller scars compared to conventional open surgeries. This translates to decreased post-operative pain and faster recovery for patients.
Growing incidence of ankle fractures and ankle arthritis propelled by rising cases of obesity and sports injuries is also anticipated to boost the ankle fusion nail market. Obesity increases stress on weight-bearing joints such as ankles and predisposes individuals to osteoarthritis. Additionally, participation in recreational sports has led to high incidence of ankle sprains and fractures globally.
The global ankle fusion nail market is segmented on the basis of material, end user, and geography. Based on material, the market is segmented into titanium alloys and stainless steel. The titanium alloys segment is expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period. Titanium alloys provide greater strength, resistance to corrosion, and are biocompatible. Based on end user, the market is segmented into hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, and orthopedic clinics. The hospitals segment holds the largest market share due to a large number of ankle fusion procedures performed in hospitals.
