The global market for arthroscopy products and sports medicine implants is expected to reach $9.0bn by 2023, a CAGR of 4.2% from $7.3bn in 2018, driven in part by the rising availability of arthroscopy at ambulatory surgery centers in many countries, expanding indications for arthroscopic repair, patient preference for minimally invasive procedures and advanced techniques.
Market Intel: Promising Data At ATS2018 Inflate Hopes For Endobronchial Valves And New Device-Based COPD Therapies
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a widespread, progressive lung disease for which pulmonologists in the US have had few new treatment options available outside the standard pharmacological therapies, lung rehabilitation and high-risk lung volume reduction surgery. Now emerging technologies, in particular, endobronchial valves, which aim to shrink hyperinflated lungs in severe emphysema patients, could soon become the first minimally invasive treatment option available in the US. New study results, presented at this year's annual American Thoracic Society International Conference in San Diego, helped built momentum among US-based clinicians to extend upon their therapeutic arsenal for patients for devices that have already been widely used in Europe. This article discusses study findings presented at ATS, including a new cost-comparison analysis for treating COPD patients at home using non-invasive ventilation and oxygen therapy. We'll also discuss the latest innovative technologies for COPD patients presented at ATS and provide insights from leading experts on factors they think will drive treatment options forward.
A PMA for the PneumRx ELEVAIR endobronchial coil system will be considered by a US FDA advisory panel in June, but there will likely be some questions about the data.
Custom Ultrasonics' System 83 Plus automated endoscope reprocessors may now be used to disinfect specific models of Olympus and Pentax duodenoscopes, FDA says.
