Hammertoe is a deformity of the second, third, or fourth toe causing the toe to bend at the middle joint rather than pointing forward. Common indications for hammertoe correction are adventitious bursitis on the dorsal surface of the hammertoe, ankylosis of the distal or proximal interphalangeal joint, ulceration of the apices, lateral metatarsophalangeal (MTP) capsular tear, synovitis/capsulitis of the MTP joint, persistent trauma, dislocation of the MTP joint, and co-existence of conditions such as tendon contracture. Fusion of joint is the most common surgical procedure to treat hammertoe.
Increase in the number of hammertoe correction surgeries that use implants and technological advancements in the field of hammertoe repair are anticipated to drive the hammertoe correction systems market. According the data published by Cartiva, Inc., in the U.S., nearly 600,000 surgical implant procedures are performed for the treatment of hammertoes every year. Furthermore, the market is driven by increase in the number of product launches in the market and distribution agreements by market players operating in North America and Europe. For instance, in February 2017, Centric Medical launched ROGUE+, a hammertoe correction system. In October 2016, Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Inc. entered into an exclusive agreement with Nextremity Solutions, Inc. to distribute the company's foot and ankle deformity correction products such as Nextra hammertoe correction system, MSP metatarsal shortening system, Re+Line bunion correction system, and ArcusTM staple system. This enabled the company to expand its foot and ankle portfolio across the world. Also, increase in the number of trauma cases leading to fractures and tendon imbalance led by neuromuscular conditions such as cerebral palsy is expected to significantly drive the market during the forecast period.
