Closure Devices Market Analysis | United States | 2017-2023 | MedCore
Closure devices are often used at the final stage of laparoscopic surgeries to manage wound closure. The market for closure devices encompasses staplers, endosuturing devices and clip appliers. staplers include an end-effector, a handle and a shaft. Staplers can be disposable (made of plastic) or reusable (made of titanium stainless steel), and can be used for both open and laparoscopic procedures. Laparoscopic staplers are normally longer and thinner in order to accommodate minimally invasive surgery. Endosuturing techniques are achieved via the needle-thread method of manual knotting. Compared to other methods of wound closure, endosutures ensure secure fastening of the tissue; however, knotting can sometimes be cumbersome for new surgeons. New devices in endosuturing will eliminate manual tying, offering a fast and accurate mechanical knotting system.
