The Japanese medical plate and screw market, driven by surgeon acceptance, is forecast to grow to over $170m by 2014, according to a report from Millennium Research Group (MRG).

The MRG forecast reveals that surgeons in Japan are increasingly accepting anatomic locking plating systems such as Acumed’s Acu-Loc plates and Synthes’ Locking Compression Plates to perform complex periarticular fractures.

Lock and plate systems lower soft tissue irritation and accelerate fracture healing because they are designed to fit the periarticular space being treated.

The report says that anatomic plates are being shown more preference by Japanese surgeons compared with specific intramedullary nails, especially for nonmedial long-bone fractures.

MRG analyst Arun Jaganathan said anatomic plating represents a real growth opportunity for domestic and multinational companies.

“Compared with surgeons in the US and Europe, Japanese surgeons are more accepting of clinical evidence pointing to more stable fixation and improved health outcomes associated with an anatomic plate instead of an intramedullary nail,” he said.
