Global Craniomaxillofacial (CMF) Devices Market 2015-2019
About Craniomaxillofacial devices
Craniomaxillofacial traumas caused by sports injuries and traffic accidents can result in frontal bone fracture, orbital fracture, maxillary fracture, and mandibular fracture. CMF devices are used to repair and reconstruct the cranial and facial fractures. These devices are also used to reconstruct genetic defects such as cleft palate, Down syndrome, and Treacher Collins syndrome.
CMF devices are classified into internal and external fixators based on the location of the surgery. Metals and alloys and polymers are used to manufacture CMF devices. In metals, titanium alloys are widely used to manufacture cranial plates because of its high strength, low weight, and non-corrosive properties. Implants that contain polymers such as PMMA and Medpor are commonly used, as these are biocompatible and help in the augmentation of the cranial and facial bones. In resorbable fixation devices, biomaterials such as PDLLA and PPEK are used. According to the needs of the patients, customized cranial implants can be manufactured.
Technavio's analysts forecast the global craniomaxillofacial devices market to grow at a CAGR of 6% during 2014-2019.
