Intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) is an important procedure that helps to assess the functional integrity of the brain, brain stem, spinal cord, or peripheral nerves during and after complex surgical procedures. An IONM system uses recordings of potentials such as EEG and EMG from the nervous system during a surgical procedure. The use of neuromonitoring is important during surgeries as it helps in the detection of injuries or possible impairment of nerve function before, they become so severe that they cause post-operative complications in the patients.
IONM reduces risk of deficits such as muscle weakness, paralysis, hearing loss, and other normal body functions. IONM provides immediate feedback and warning to the surgeon for the prevention of permanent nerve injury because of post-surgical damage. IONM is quick, painless, easy, and inexpensive. It can record the nerve function multiple times or even throughout the entire process of surgery.

The major drivers fueling the growth of the market are the increase in surgical procedures, high importance on patient safety and technological advancement.
Increase in the number of surgical procedures will drive the market growth
The global surgical sutures market is expanding at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of XX% and is forecast to reach $XXbn by 2024. Emerging markets, especially large markets such as India and China, have significant untapped potential in expanding the worldwide surgical devices market. As incomes and living standards in these nations continue to rise, a greater segment of the world’s population will demand better healthcare.
High Importance for patient safety is driving the market growth
Surgeons use IONM as an additional line of safety during surgeries. These systems play a vital role during critical surgeries such as spinal surgeries that involve the insertion of instruments near the nerves or the spinal area and may cause damage to the CNS. According to the WHO, statistical studies estimate that surgeons use IONM devices and services for about 750,000 surgeries annually in the US, particularly for neurosurgery, interventional neuromonitoring, and spinal, orthopedic, vascular, ENT, and cardiovascular surgeries. IONM also helps surgeons avoid or minimize common complications such as paraparesis, quadriplegia, and paraplegia that occur during surgeries.
