Ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) generally have smaller budgets than hospitals and are therefore more price-sensitive when purchasing FM disposables. The movement of procedures into a more price-sensitive setting is expected to limit price growth in the market for FM disposables over the forecast period.
During an arthroscopic procedure, the damaged joint must be distended to allow for close inspection, increased surgical space and decreased bleeding during the operation. To achieve distension, fluid under continuous pressure is introduced into the joint through a cannula system. Joint distention is maintained by a fluid management system that can either be gravity or pump controlled.
