According to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 70.0% of US adults of age 65 or older have high blood pressure and only 50% of them have it under control (less than 140/90 mmHg). Causing of several diseases like coronary artery disease, dementia, kidney failure, kidney artery aneurysm etc. affect older adults to disability, low quality of life, increase in health and long term care costs. According to HCUPnet, surgical treatment of lumbar/ lumbosacral degenerative disc disease has reached up to 105,195 till 2014 with a CAGR of 25.82% for the year 2004-2014 in U.S. According to an article published in National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), surgeons nowadays for performing the procedures which were previously done as open surgery.
