DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Research and Markets (

has announced the addition of the “Global

Gastrointestinal Devices Market 2012-2016” report to their


The demand among patients for minimally invasive surgery is increasing

because this type of surgery can remove masses or growths with minimal

scarring and also results in improved surgical outcomes, lower surgical

risks, and shorter surgical procedure time. Moreover, it minimizes

recovery time and thereby reduces the length of hospital stay. For

example, gallbladder removal (cholecystectomy), adhesiolysis (removal of

abdominal scar tissue), appendectomy, gastric bypass, colon resection,

and hernia repair are surgical procedures that can be performed using a

minimally invasive approach. This trend is expected to increase the

market for GI devices used in such procedures.

According to the report, one of the major drivers is the increasing

number of patients suffering from GI disorders. Changing lifestyles and

food habits are the major factors leading to an increase in the number

of patients with GI disorders.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in the

market is the preference for alternative procedures. For example,

chemotherapy and radiation can be used to treat malignant esophageal

strictures caused by primary esophageal cancer. These therapies are

known to have better survival rates than surgery.
