BPH Treatment Devices Market Analysis | United States | 2019-2025 | MedCore

This report groups laser BPH procedures into the following categories: PVP, laser enucleation and other laser procedures. The reason for this is because there is a distinct CPT code for laser enucleation procedures which require the use of a morcellator. There is also a specific code for laser vaporization procedures that includes PVP procedures which represent the largest share of laser BPH procedures. Taking the difference between laser enucleation and PVP procedures yields the proportion of other laser procedures which includes laser ablation, laser resection, etc.

Brachytherapy Market Analysis | Europe | 2016-2022 | MedCore

Brachytherapy is an outpatient procedure for the treatment of prostate cancer. In brachytherapy, a needle is inserted through the perineum and radioactive seeds are implanted into the prostate. Fluoroscopy and ultrasound are used to visualize the prostate gland for precise positioning of the needles. There are three types of LDR radioactive seeds: iodine-125, palladium-103 and cesium-131. These radioactive isotopes are left inside the prostate for up to several weeks and ultimately destroy tumor cells by damaging the cells’ DNA, diminishing their ability to repair and causing cell death. Because palladium isotopes have a shorter half-life than iodine isotopes, the radiation dosage is delivered over a shorter period of time. For the purposes of this analysis, only iodine seeds will be considered.

Erectile Dysfunction Devices Market Analysis | Europe | 2016-2022 | MedCore

For an erection to occur, blood flows into the penis, which causes it to expand and stiffen; this is sparked by impulses from the brain to the genital nerves. Erectile dysfunction (ED) can be caused when these impulses are blocked, or the flow of blood to the penis is restricted. Chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, atherosclerosis, kidney disease and multiple sclerosis can be common underlying causes. Certain medications, psychological factors and injuries can also be factors leading to ED.

Nephrostomy Devices Market Analysis | Europe | 2016-2022 | MedCore

Under normal circumstances urine travels between the kidneys and bladder through the ureters. When a blockage prevents this flow, ureteral stents are usually threaded into the ureter as a solution. In cases where this is not the best option, a nephrostomy tube can be used to maintain a passageway between the skin and renal pelvis to facilitate drainage. Without treatment, pressure would build within the urinary system and cause kidney damage. Blockage can result from tumors, kidney stones and pyonephrosis or the infection of the renal pelvis and collecting system.

Stone Treatment Devices Market Analysis | Europe | 2016-2022 | MedCore

There are numerous methods for treating and removing kidney and urinary stones. Treatments can be classified as either extracorporeal or endoscopic stone management procedures. Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) treatment uses an ultrasound device to fragment the stone until it is small enough to be passed through the urethra. This is a non-invasive outpatient procedure that generally takes one hour to complete and is performed under local anesthesia. Typically, ESWL is used for small- to medium-sized stones between 1/6 inch and one inch in size. On average, stones re-form in 20% of ESWL patients because fragments are not completely excreted. Complications associated with ESWL include blocked urine flow from fragments in the urinary tract, bleeding and urinary tract infection. In addition, ESWL is rarely used on cystine kidney stones because these do not break up easily.

TURP Devices Market Analysis | Europe | 2016-2022 | MedCore

Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is the leading procedure to treat benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH). TURP is an interventional procedure that is performed under anesthesia in which a resectoscope is inserted through the urethra to remove obstructing prostate tissue. The procedure is nearly as effective as open prostatectomy, but has a lower risk of serious complications such as blood loss, incontinence and impotence.

Urinary Catheters Market Analysis | Europe | 2016-2022 | MedCore

The urinary catheter market is segmented into intermittent, Foley and male external catheters. Urinary catheters are hollow plastic or rubber tubes that are inserted into the urethra for the collection of urine for patients with urinary dysfunction. Intermittent catheters are used for short-term catheterization and include conventional, closed system and antimicrobial catheters. Foley catheters are generally used as long-term catheters and are retained by a balloon at the tip which is inflated with water. Foley catheters include those that are sold alone or those sold as trays; the corresponding market includes further segmentation between conventional and antimicrobial Foley catheters. Male external catheters are devices that fit over the penis and connect to a drainage bag.

Urological Endoscopes Market Analysis | Europe | 2016-2022 | MedCore

Urological endoscopes are long, tube-like instruments used in a number of urological procedures to examine inside the body or perform minimally invasive surgery. Urological endoscopes include cystoscopes for endoscopy of the urinary bladder, ureteroscopes for examining the ureter, resectoscopes used in transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) and nephroscopes used to examine the kidneys.

Urinary Incontinence Slings Market Analysis | Europe | 2016-2022 | MedCore

Female urinary incontinence affects approximately 10% of the population at some point in their lives. Urinary incontinence affects both women and men; however, there is a greater prevalence of incontinence amongst women. The difference is often attributed to changes that occur during pregnancy and childbirth as well as additional factors such as menopause. There are four main categories recognized for urinary incontinence, with 50% of cases diagnosed as stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Surgical treatment using a urinary incontinence sling is one of the most recommended options to help SUI patients become incontinence-free.

Erectile Dysfunction Devices Market Analysis | United States | 2016-2022 | MedCore

Erectile dysfunction (ED) can be described as the frequent inability for a man to attain and sustain an erection; this could inhibit sexual intercourse and affect quality of life. Onset of ED can begin at the age of 40 and affects 18 to 30 million men. Occasional failure to achieve an erection is not uncommon but a prevalence of 50% or more of the time could be an indication that treatment is required. ED tends to increase with age but treatment can be sought at any age.

Nephostromy Devices Market Analysis | United States | 2016-2022 | MedCore

Percutaneous nephrostomy (PCN) procedures create drainage of urine from the upper part of the urinary system to an external urinary collection bag. This is accomplished by puncturing the skin and inserting a catheter, also known as a nephrostomy drainage tube, into the renal pelvis. Under normal circumstances, urine travels between the kidneys and bladder through the ureters. When a blockage prevents this flow, ureteral stents are usually threaded into the ureter as a solution. In cases where this is not the best option, a nephrostomy tube can be used to maintain a passageway between the skin and renal pelvis to facilitate drainage. Without treatment, pressure would build within the urinary system and cause kidney damage. Blockage can result from tumors, kidney stones and pyonephrosis or the infection of the renal pelvis and collecting system.

Prostate Cancer Treatment Devices Market Analysis | United States | 2016-2022 | MedCore

Internal radiation therapy (RTi), also known as brachytherapy, is a form or RT that puts the radioactive material inside the patient either via a catheter or a needle. In terms of its placement, RTi may be administered as intracavitary or interstitial. In the case of intracavitary, the radioactive material is placed inside a cavity in the body such as in the rectum or uterus; in the case of interstitial, the radioactive material is placed on/near the cancer but not inside a body cavity. The most common form of brachytherapy involves the placement of “seeds” inside the body involving differing durations and radioactivity. Each seed is approximately the size and shape of a small grain of rice.

Stone Management Devices Market Analysis | United States | 2016-2022 | MedCore

This report suite defines intracorporeal non-lithotripsy procedures as endoscopic removal of stones without fragmenting them first with ISWL. These procedures use retrieval devices such as alligator forceps or grasping forceps to crush the stone and remove the fragments or remove the stones whole. In addition, stone retrieval devices can be used to clinch the stone while treatment is being applied. The size, shape and location of the stone as well as the lithotripter being used are the primary determinants of which devices will be used. Stone retrieval devices can be segmented into two varieties based on their material. In the past, stainless-steel stone removal baskets were the standard. However, the emergence of the nitinol basket has shifted the market despite the cost premium.
