Future Market Insights
Kidney stone extraction balloon is a surgical device intended for the expansion of ureteral strictures before the kidney stone extraction process via ureteroscopy. Kidney stone extraction balloon is composed of a balloon-like structure at the tip and used for enlarging a narrow passage in the ureter or other related parts. Kidney stone extraction balloon is inserted in a deflated position and upon proper location, is inflated, and subsequently removed deflated. Kidney stone extraction balloon is equipped with a guide-wire that has to be placed in the ureter. In addition, followed by the dilation of stricture, the guide wire remains in position. The kidney stone balloon catheters are available based on the size of the balloon and shape. The inflation of kidney extraction balloon is done with sterile water and air is often neglected as it may cause the balloon to float, and presence of salinity in water may cause deflation process to become complex due to the blockage in inflation channel with crystals.
Kidney Stone Extraction Balloon Market: Drivers and Restraints
The growth of global kidney stone extraction balloon market is generally driven by increasing prevalence of kidney stones among the population. For instance, according to the estimates of National Kidney Foundation (NKF) in the late 2000s, approximately one in ten people is suffering from kidney stones, nearly 8.8% of total population is carrying kidney stone in U.S. alone, and approximately 19% are men and 9% are women. In addition, other factors such as rising incidence of high blood pressure, diabetes, and obesity in the general population, may increase the likelihood of developing kidney stones, and thereby, boost the growth of kidney stone extraction balloon market. However, factors such as high cost of the instrument coupled with the high cost of the procedures are hampering the market growth of kidney stone extraction balloon. Furthermore, unfavorable reimbursement scenario and scarcity of skilled professionals may result in impeding the growth of kidney stone extraction balloon market.
