Cranial clamps are instruments designed to hold and stabilize the head during a neurosurgery so as to prove better access during surgery. A head fixation device is the most important medical device in neurosurgery as it is preconditioned to allow neurosurgeons to operate. Most neurosurgery procedures need rigid fixation of the head for successful operation.
Cranial Clamps Market: Drivers and Restraints
The growing number of neurosurgeries, owing to growing risk factors such as trauma, cancer and others are leading to an increase in the adoption of cranial clamps. The growth in healthcare infrastructure, growing number of hospitals, development of specialty neurosurgical centers and others are also surging the market demand for cranial clamps.

Advancements in technology such as the development of radiolucent and sterilizable cranial clamps are leading to larger market adoption. Development of new surgical techniques have generated demand for miniaturized instruments to reduce surgical footprint. These has resulted in innovative designs such as multipoint instruments and the development of sensors to gauge the pressures on the skull. Further, the growing adoption of aluminum inserts has resulted in lightweight instruments.
On the other hand, the wounds caused by pin-type clamps, risk of depressed skull fractures and the high risk of neurosurgeries are some of the major deterrents to the market growth.
Cranial Clamps Market: Segmentation
