Introduction: Cranial/Maxillofacial Bone Reconstruction



Cranial defects are generally caused by trauma, diseases (Osteomyelitis of bone) infection, injury, or malignancy.
Cranial implants or reconstruction is required for restoring the skull contour, protecting intracranial structures, and normalizing cerebral hemodynamics.
Cranial Implants Market was valued at USD 1.05 Billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 1.77 Billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 6.67% from 2021 to 2028. 2.
Increasing prevalence of brain tumors owing to genetic disorders and unhealthy lifestyles coupled with increasing injuries, wounds, and road accidents are expected to drive the demand, thereby influencing the segment growth.
