Symptoms of fibromyalgia include insomnia, morning stiffness, headache, painful menstrual periods, and numbness in hand and figures. Fibromyalgia is of three types namely Hyperalgesia, Allodynia and Paresthesia. Hyperalgesia is increased...
Arthroscopy Procedures And Products Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2012 - 2018
By - Transparency Market Research
Description The global arthroscopy market is expected to undergo rapid growth in the next few years. Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive orthopedic surgical procedure in which examination of joints and their treatment is performed. Arthroscopic procedures are thus primarily performed to evaluate or treat certain orthopedic conditions such as torn cartilage, ACL reconstruction and others. Arthroscopy is preferred over open surgical methods because of the advantages of this procedure such as non-requirement of opening the joint completely, reduction of recovery time, less risk of...
