Lumbar Spine

The lower back spine is known as the lumbar spine. It consists of 5 vertebral bones, the sacrum, and the coccyx that protects vertebral column. Lumbar puncture is a medical procedure, mainly carried out to procure cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and analyse it to strike out potential fatal conditions and also for many therapeutic purposes. CSF analysis can also assist the diagnosis of several serious conditions.

32 % of the patients experience severe headache prior lumbar puncture and carries a substantial morbidity. The symptoms may last for several days and at times extreme enough to immobilize the patient. If left untreated, it can cause fatal complications like subdural haematoma and seizures. Ultrasound-guided lumbar puncture has proved most helpful to almost 75% of obese patients with spinal disorders.

The market for lumbar puncture is expanding day by day. The average cost of the procedure is $353. Typically, the total cost for lumbar puncture is $3,000-$5,000. Some of the key players in this market are Affymetrix Inc., Abbott Laboratories, Inc., Becton-Dickinson Company, Beckman Coulter Inc., Diamedix Corporation, Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc and DiaSorin S.p.A., Gen-Probe, Inc., Fujirebio Diagnostics, Inc., Novartis Diagnostics, Hologic, Inc., and Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics, Inc.
