Urinary Tract Stenting Market Outlook to 2023 Latest Industry Forecast Report

Urine is normally carried from the kidneys to the bladder through long, narrow, muscular tubes called ureters. The passage of urine may become difficult if the ureter becomes obstructed due to conditions such as tumors, infections, kidney stone, etc. For such conditions, the physicians place an artificial tube, known as ureteral stent, intended to restore the flow of the bladder. Aging is the most common factor that leads to several types of urology diseases. The global aging population is a direct indication of the possible rise in the patients suffering with urological diseases. With the increasing conditions that obstruct the flow of urine, the use of urological stents have become the most fundamental and valuable technique in the urological practice.

Obtain Report Details:

A ureteral stent is specially designed a soft tube 10-12 inches in length that is placed in the ureter for draining urine from the kidney to the urinary bladder. These stents are coiled at both the end to stay in place in the urinary system and therefore also known as JJ stent, pig-tail stent of double J stent. Normally a person can have ureteral stents for not more than 3 to 6 months. If left for longer duration, there is a possibility of stone formation which makes removal of stents difficult. If a patient is required to have stent for a longer duration, he must be admitted in the hospital for stent change. This is a serious limitation for the usage ureteral stent. Several companies operating in the market are trying to overcome the issue of biofilm formation and mineralogical encrustation. Furthermore, there are ongoing research activities in the global urinary tract stenting market to modify the design, discovering novel stent coating and the basic composition materials of the stent. Usage of metal stents in urology is being recommended by some physicians which have not yet become a widespread practice. Some of the advancements required for the industry include anti-body coated stents, nanotube coating, radioactive stents, and absorbable magnesium metal stent. The successful trials of the technologies have a potential to drastically change the existing market dynamics in the global urinary stenting market.

The global market for urinary tract stenting can be segmented on the basis of application of urology stents into kidney stones treatment. The major segments in which urological stents are used include procedures such as lithotripsy, ureteroscopy, ureteroenoscopy, and percutaneous nephrolithotomy. Based on the procedures of removing the obstruction in the ureter, the market can be segmented into ureteral stenting, prostate stenting and urethral stenting.
