The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of lithotripsy devices.
Lithotripter is a non-invasive device that helps in breaking the kidney stones by passing electromagnetic shock waves from outside the body. The device provides a non-surgical method of destroying/pulverizing stones into small pieces that are capable enough to excrete naturally through individual's urine. Very few lithotripsies are performed through MI procedures that expose individuals to a lower concentration of anesthesia.
There have been numerous advancements made to the MI technology in last three decades. The advances such as designing optimal smaller diameter endoscope with improved imaging and maneuverability have positively impacted the market growth.
According to the report, there is an increased prevalence of urolithiasis over the past few years across the world. Urolithiasis is the most common and painful urological disorder. The incidence rate of urolithiasis is around 7% and 12% in women and men, respectively. Around five million people are diagnosed with kidney stones worldwide every year.
Further, the report states that common post lithotripsy complications include abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting, ureteral colic, fever, and skin ecchymosis. The ESWL is a highly effective treatment for the removal of kidney stones; however, the shockwaves used to breakdown stones may be harmful. These waves can cause vascular trauma to the kidney and to the surrounding organs.
