Nephrostomy Market Is Witnessing Stable Growth Due to Increase in Incidence Rate of Lifestyle-Related Diseases


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/07/2019 -- Nephrostomy is a surgical procedure in which an opening is created between the kidney and the skin. The procedure is usually performed in patients with blocked ureters. The blockage can form due to various reasons, but mainly due to kidney stones and cancer. The procedure is performed using a nephrostomy tube, a thin plastic tube, so as to temporarily drain the blocked urine, thereby allowing the kidney to function normally without any further damage. The tube is passed from the back, through the kidneys, up to the point where the urine is collected. This eliminates the risk of urine infection. Ultrasound/X-ray images are used to guide the procedure.

The global nephrostomy market is witnessing stable growth due to factors, such as, increase in incidence rate of lifestyle-related diseases, rise in percentage of geriatric people in the overall population, and technological advancements improving the efficacy of minimally invasive products boosting their higher adoption. Increasing educational workshops to train urologists in advanced minimally invasive procedures and rise in reimbursement coverage for kidney diseases in developing countries are likely to drive the growth of the global nephrostomy market during the forecast period.

However, increase in operative time due to stone migration are anticipated to restrain the growth of the global nephrostomy market during the forecast period. Moreover, possibilities of adverse effects of the procedure, such as, infection, hemorrhage, tube dislodgement, etc. are the other factors projected to limit the growth of the global nephrostomy market during the forecast period.
