DUBLIN, Aug. 07, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Europe Markets for Minimally Invasive Spinal Implants - 15 Countries (2011-2021)" report to their offering.

Historically, the majority of spinal implants were implanted in open surgical procedures through large incisions. However, open surgery can cause considerable tissue damage and lead to a large number of complications. Minimally invasive techniques, which require only small puncture wounds, have been developed for the implantation of a number of spinal implant types.

Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) methods are frequently used for implanting traditional spinal implant devices, such as interbody devices and pedicle screws. However, new technologies such as facet fixation and spinous process fixation have also been developed using MIS techniques.

For the purposes of this report, the European minimally invasive spinal implant market is segmented into MIS pedicle screws and MIS interbody fusion. A number of other MIS segments also exist in the spinal industry; however, due to their limited sized in the European market, they will only be briefly described at the end of the report.

The European market for minimally invasive spinal implants includes minimally invasive pedicle screw systems and minimally invasive interbody devices. Both segments are anticipated to maintain moderate growth throughout the forecast period as a result of the physiological and surgical advantages of minimally invasive techniques.

Minimally invasive spinal implants encompass a number of other technologies, such as spinous process fixation, facet fixation and minimally invasive sacroiliac fusion; these markets are still in their infancy in Europe and therefore are not discussed in the report.
