More on Gamma4 Hip Fracture Nailing System

In March 2023, Stryker announced the release of the Gamma4 Hip Fracture nailing System in most of its European markets. The device received the CE certification in November 2023.

The Gamma4 System has been approved for the treatment of fractures in the intracapsular, trochanteric, subtrochanteric and shaft regions of the femur (including osteoporotic and osteopenic bone), and it has already been utilized in above 25,000 patients in North America and Japan. Its nail design is informed by Stryker's SOMA database, which includes more than 37,000 3D bone models generated from CT scans.

Industry Prospects

Per a report by Market Research Future, the global orthopedic trauma devices market was worth $5.9 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $10.7 billion by 2032, seeing a CAGR of 6.8%. Factors like a growing elderly population, the rising prevalence of osteoporosis and musculoskeletal diseases, and the increasing incidence of sports and traumatic injuries are expected to drive the market.

Notable Developments

In May 2024, Stryker announced the successful completion of the first European surgeries using the Infinity Total Ankle System with Adaptis and Everlast technology. Infinity with Adaptis builds on the legacy of the original Infinity Total Ankle, with a decade of clinical use.

In February, Stryker announced the successful completion of the first shoulder arthroplasty surgeries using Blueprint Mixed Reality (MR) Guidance in Europe. The Blueprint MR Guidance System allows surgeons and their instruments to be guided by 3D images and guidance widgets, which can be displayed on the patient and in the surgeon’s line of sight without disrupting normal workflow.
