Orthopedic devices are used to treat the disorders and injuries of the musculoskeletal system of human body. Orthobiologics are biomaterials used in orthopedic surgery as an adjunct to faster fusion and healing of the bone. Cartilage Repair procedures aim to regenerate, restore or replace articular cartilage to reduce joint pain and to prevent the development of arthritis.

Cartilage Repair interventions can occur early in the spectrum of joint damage and offer an opportunity for patients to delay or altogether avoid needing total joint replacement surgery. Articular cartilage damage generally occurs via two main routes, sports-related and traumatic injury as well as through inflammatory arthropathies. There are several approaches employed to treat chondral lesions (cartilage damage) in the joints. The subsegments covered are Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection, Extracellular Matrix Implants, Intact Tissue Implants, and Marrow Stimulation (Microfracture). Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection devices are able to draw a patient’s own blood and process it into platelet-rich plasma through centrifugation and collection of the platelet-rich component. Extracellular Matrix Implants are decellularized implants that match or mimic the 3D structure of cartilage. Intact Tissue Implants are covered into three general categories: Osteochondral Autografts, Osteochondral Allografts, and Meniscal Allografts. Marrow Stimulation (Microfracture) procedures involve creating small holes in subchondral bone to produce a bleeding effect.
Following the widespread disruption resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic to the broader medical devices market during 2020 and 2021, the value of the cartilage repair devices market within Germany was expected to be over $3m in 2022.
