Cranial cramps are the instruments which are manufactured to grip and keep head steady during a neurosurgery, which gives better access to brain during the surgery. Normally, most of the neurosurgery procedures require rigid fixation of the head for a successful operation. Head fixation devices are one of the most important medical devices in neurosurgery as they are preconditioned which allows neurosurgeons to operate precisely.
Cranial clamps are used in different types of procedures including head trauma injuries, craniotomy for tumor removal, neurodegenerative disorders such as epilepsy or Parkinson’s disease, and cerebrovascular disorders such as aneurysms. They are also utilized in medical imaging technologies such as skull radiography, computed tomography (CT) scan, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Rise in number of neurosurgeries due to increase in risk factors such as cancer, trauma, and other disorders leads to increase in adoption of cranial clamps. Increase in health care infrastructure, rise in number of hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers, and increase in investment in research & development activities by pharmaceutical and biotech companies are some of the key factors which are expected to drive the global cranial clamps market.
Additionally, advancements in technology, for example, discovery of sterilizable & radiolucent cranial clamps, development of new surgical techniques, and miniaturized instruments to minimize surgical footprints are some of the factors which are anticipated to propel the global cranial clamps market. However, wounds caused by pin-type clamps and risks associated with depressed skull fractures and neurosurgeries are some of the factors which may hinder the growth of the global cranial clamps market in the next few years.
The global cranial cramps market is highly saturated with key manufacturers implementing various strategies to gain maximum market share.
