US Market Report for Fluid Management Disposables 2017 – MedCore
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.
Gravity is the simplest form of fluid management and consists of a liquid that is administered through a bag reservoir that is raised above the patient.

General Report Contents Market Analyses include: Unit Sales, ASPs, Market Value & Growth Trends Market Drivers & Limiters for each chapter segment Competitive Analysis for each chapter segment Section on recent mergers & acquisitionsPump management systems require the use of a console, which mechanically controls the fluid pressure in the joint. Consoles are usually supplied without charge in exchange for on-going disposable tube contracts. These tubes are used in both gravity and pump procedures. Only the tubing and not the pump systems will be discussed in this analysis.There are two types of tubing: inflow tubing and outflow tubing. Inflow tubing is used to push fluid into the joint and then allow fluid to flow out naturally. Outflow tubing is used to pull fluid out of the joint space to keep the operative field clear of surgical debris. The inflow-outflow systems are newer to the market, but are becoming increasingly popular; however, in 2016, outflow tubing was used in less than 25% of cases.There are two types of inflow tubing in pump management procedures: single-use and day-use tubes. Single-use tubes are thrown away after every surgery. Day-use tubing systems are composed of two pieces of tubing: pump-side day-use tubing and patient-side day-use tubing. Pump-side day-use tubes attach to the console and do not come into contact with the patient. Day-use tubing can be used for as many surgeries as there are in a day. Day-use tubing is used in conjunction with patient-side day-use tubing, which does come into contact with the patient and is discarded after every case.
