NEW YORK, Sept. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The elbow joint reconstruction market has not had the same degree of growth that the shoulder market has experienced since 2005. Future growth appears to be focusing on radial head implants for the treatment of fractures due to falling on outstretched hands, which are the most common type of fractures. Devices described in this report include semi-constrained total elbow joint replacements, unconstrained total elbow joint replacements and radial head implants.
The elbow naturally operates as a hinge joint, with the majority of the natural range of motion occurring on one plane, although it also includes a rotational component. The joint involves the articulation of three bones: the humerus, the radius and the ulna. The articulation of the head of the radius on the ulna allows for forearm pronation and supination, resulting in the ability to rotate the wrist.
