Global sales of orthobiologics for musculoskeletal soft tissue replacement and regeneration are predicted to hit $1.4bn by 2021, driven largely by rising numbers of sports injuries requiring treatment, but also by a higher prevalence of osteoarthritis and a need for innovative treatments for musculoskeletal repair. This article offers an in-depth look at the orthobiologics market landscape for cartilage, meniscus and ligament/tendon replacement and regeneration, as well as insight from an orthopedic surgeon. It also analyzes key players in these markets and highlights emerging trends and the greatest barriers for wider adoption of products.
Story and Podcast: Teleflex Medical launched in March a novel portfolio of miniaturized percutaneous surgical instruments that have the same functionality as full-sized laparoscopic instruments, but allow surgeons to access the abdominal cavity using trocar-less entry and much smaller incisions than those required in traditional laparoscopy.

Innovation is driving healthy growth in the multibillion-dollar market for minimally invasive surgical products as manufacturers develop new laparoscopic visualization systems and advanced surgical tools with robotic-like features designed to enable more complex procedures to be performed via a minimally invasive approach.
