The Japanese market for orthopedic soft tissue repair and sports medicine exceeded $1 billion in 2011.
The orthopedic soft tissue repair and sports medicine market includes shoulder repair (rotator cuff and shoulder labrum repair), knee repair (anterior and posterior cruciate ligament fixation products and meniscal repair devices) and hyaluronic acid viscosupplementation. None of these segments were affected by the financial crisis in 2011; instead, the market was more hindered by the Great East Japan Earthquake and appreciation of the Japanese yen. Nonetheless, there was a spike in growth in 2011 due to the introduction of a three-injection cycle hyaluronic acid viscosupplementation product in late 2010
