Major Segments Covered in the Dialysis Market Report Suite

While this report suite contains all US Dialysis Market data, each of the market segments are also available as stand alone MedCore reports. This allows you to get access to only the Dialysis Device market research that you need. You can view all these included reports and segmentation here:

  • Dialysis Market Overview – MedView: Gives an easily accessible view of all dialysis device markets and trends, and aggregates the data together for a picture of the total US market.
  • Procedure Numbers for Dialysis Devices – MedPro: Using a number of databases, internal and external, we’re able to provide you with the total volume of dialysis device procedures being performed for each of the markets mentioned in this suite of reports.
  • Market Report for Dialysis Machines – MedCore: A hemodialysis machine performs the critical tasks and drives hemodialysis treatments. A hemodialysis machine pumps blood from the body of the patient through a system of bloodlines and into the dialyzer. Dialysis fluids absorb toxins and excess water filtered out of the blood and then removes them from the body. The dialysis fluids are entered into the dialyzer through a separate cycle. Hemodialysis machines mix and monitor the dialysate used in each treatment. Dialysate is the dialysis fluid that serves to remove dangerous and unwanted waste products from the patient’s blood. A dialysis machine also adds an anti-coagulant drug into the blood.
  • Market Report for Dialysis Catheters – MedCore: The dialysis catheter market is composed of short-term (acute) hemodialysis, long-term (chronic) hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis (PD) catheters. The largest segment in the total dialysis catheter market in 2016 was represented by long-term hemodialysis catheters. Growth in the long-term hemodialysis catheter segment was driven by increases in the conventional long-term hemodialysis and the antimicrobial long-term hemodialysis sub-segments. Moderate growth in the value of the total dialysis catheter market is expected to persist over the forecast period. However, the shift toward fistula use in the U.S. will continue to hinder growth in the value of the total dialysis catheter market.
  • Market Report for Dialysis Concentrates – MedCore: There are two main types of concentrates for hemodialysis: acid and bicarbonate (base). Treated water is mixed with acid and bicarbonate concentrates to form the dialysis fluid (dialysate). Hemodialysate (dialysate) is the fluid and solutes that flows through the dialyzer during a hemodialysis process. After the combination of the bicarbonate concentrate, acid concentrate and water, the final dialysate can contain two or three buffer components, which depend on the acid concentrate used. The buffers are bicarbonate from the bicarbonate concentrate, citrate and/or acetate from the acid concentrate.
  • Market Report for Dialyzers – MedCore: In the process of hemodialysis, the dialyzer performs the essential function of the kidney. During a hemodialysis treatment, the dialyzer will clean and remove the toxic substances from the blood. Blood can only be cleaned physically, not chemically. The patient’s blood is essentially filtered inside the dialyzer, and is channeled through the hollow fibers of the dialyzer. The walls of the hollow fibers consist of an ultra-thin membrane and various physical processes enable the removal of harmful molecules, while the critical elements of the blood are retained. The more exact a dialyzer and its membrane are at separating the important molecules from the harmful ones, the more effective the hemodialysis treatment will be.
  • Market Report for Dialyzer Reprocessing Machines – MedCore: Each hemodialysis treatment undergone by a patient requires the use of a dialyzer. The dialyzer employed by each treatment can be either a single-use or a reuse dialyzer. A single-use dialyzer will be adequate for a single treatment, after which it will be disposed of. A reuse dialyzer is adequate for use on multiple treatments of the same patient. In order to be reused, a reuse dialyzer needs to be reprocessed. The procedure of reprocessing comprises cleaning, testing, filling the dialyzer with sterilant, inspecting, labeling, storing and rinsing the dialyzer before it is used for the next treatment. During the reprocessing, a reuse dialyzer also undergoes a volume test to ensure that the fibers that transport the blood are not occluded, and a pressure test to ensure that the fibers of the dialyzer are not broken. All these steps are performed by automatic equipment, which is the role of the dialyzer reprocessing machine. After reprocessing, the reuse technician will visually inspect the dialyzer to ensure that all critical aspects are up to standard. If the dialyzer passes the final inspection, it will then be labeled, which will show the patients name, the number of times they have used the dialyzer, the date and time of its last reprocessing and the initials of the individual that reprocessed the dialyzer.
  • Market Report for Hemodialysis Bloodlines and Tubing Sets – MedCore: Bloodlines, or a blood tubing set, are required for every single hemodialysis treatment. They fulfill the critical role of connecting the patient to the hemodialysis machine. The blood is taken from the patient and sent through the bloodlines to the hemodialysis machine, where the blood is cleansed of impurities in the dialyzer. The blood is then pumped out of the hemodialysis machine, through the bloodlines and back into the patient.
  • Market Report for AV Fistula Needles – MedCore: An AV fistula needle enables access to the patient’s circulatory system and permits the flow of blood from the patient, to the dialyzer’s blood compartment and then back into the patient’s bloodstream. An AV fistula needle is used for patients with either an AV fistula or an AV graft; however, they are not required for patients implanted with a dialysis catheter.
  • Market Report for AV Grafts – MedCore: Arteriovenous (AV) is the most common method of access for hemodialysis treatment in patients that are suffering from end-stage renal disease (ESRD). AV access can be achieved via either AV fistula or AV graft. The fistula can be made in an extremity, typically in the forearm, where an artery and vein are surgically connected. This connection matures and strengthens over a period of four to six weeks. Native fistulae offer the best patency and durability, in addition to limiting complications such as post-dialysis bleeding and infection. A native fistula is the preferred access technique.
  • Market Report for Declotting Devices – MedCore: Lumen stenosis can occur due to the accumulation of thrombosis or plaque particles in a similar manner to peripheral arterial disease. The accumulation of these plaque particles has also been shown to cause calcification. Lumen stenosis is a considerable problem for both AV access surgical grafts and native fistulae because they have poor vessel patency. Due to their tendency to acquire blockages, AV access surgical grafts will require revascularization twice a year, and native fistulae will need to be cleared at least once a year.
  • Market Report for Introducer Sheaths and Guidewires – MedCore: The guidewire market can best be segmented into standard (non-hydrophilic) and hydrophilic guidewires. Standard guidewires are the predominant type because they can handle more pressure than their hydrophilic counterparts. Due to this property, standard guidewires can handle heavy-duty manipulations and maneuvers. Standard guidewires are produced in a variety of configurations based on shape and size. These variants range in price depending on characteristics such as size and flexibility. When more flexibility and fluidity are required, hydrophilic guidewires are used. Hydrophilic guidewires are typically manufactured in a three-step layering process.
  • Market Report for Water Treatment – MedCore: A hemodialysis patient will be exposed to between 400 to 600 liters of water per week, through their dialysis treatments. To put this in perspective, a person with normal kidney function will be exposed to approximately 15 liters of water per week. To compound that fact, the intestinal barrier and stomach acid of a person offers protection from contaminated water better than the barrier imposed by the membrane of a dialyzer. Furthermore, a functioning kidney can further protect a normal individual by eliminating contaminants in the water; such protection is absent for a hemodialysis patient. As a result, the regulations that govern the purity of drinking water are not sufficient for patients on hemodialysis.
