DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/fwkmsd/global)
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.
