Global Bioabsorbable Implants Market: Introduction

Usage of bioabsorbable implants as alternatives to conventional synthetic implants has increased in the past few years. These implants get dissolved in the body and are replaced by natural bones.

The implant disappears after fixation is completed, without leaving any foreign material on the tissue surface. Polyglycolic acid, polylactic acid, and polydioxanone are the predominantly used materials in the manufacture of bioabsorbable implants, as these have the ability to dissolve in the biological system. Copolymer along with polyglycolic acid and polylactic acid are preferred because of higher strength. Polylactic acid is used in implants such as tacks, plates, screws, and rods. Polyglycolic acid is used in pins and screws. Bioabsorbable implants have several advantages over metallic implants including minimal stress and ability to dissolve within the body, thereby eliminating surgical removal. These also have the ability to provide necessary mechanical support for the tissue reconstruction process. However, bioabsorbable implants have disadvantages such as inflammation, decrease in mechanical strength, and osteolysis. Bioabsorbable implants have various applications in veterinary, orthopedics, sport injuries, and traumatology. These implants are used in orthopedic surgeries for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, meniscal repair, and fractures. Most of the market players focus on customizing the material properties of bioabsorbable  and composite materials.
