SmartTRAK Publication Alert: Q317 Orthopedics Soft Tissue Fixation Quarterly Market Recap

Q317 Soft Tissue Fixation Market: Flat Growth vs Q217

The Soft Tissue Fixation Market saw flat QoQ growth in Q317, as a mix of supply chain issues, increasing competition, specialized sales forces and seasonality caused the major players to take one step forward and one step backward during the quarter.
