DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Australia Market Report for Female Urinary Incontinence Slings 2017 - MedCore" report to their offering.
The female urinary incontinence sling market includes both synthetic slings and non-synthetic slings. Autologous tissue and allogenic grafts are also available options for slings; however, these treatments are not the focus of this report. The volatility in the market is attributed to ongoing scrutiny by healthcare regulatory agencies such as the FDA in the United States and adverse reactions documented by the Australian Government Department of Health TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration). The controversy surrounding urinary incontinence slings predominantly concerns synthetic slings. Due to the negative side effects publicized about slings, however, procedures using both synthetic and biological slings have decreased. The adverse side-effects have resulted in patients and, to a lesser degree, physicians, becoming more cautious about sling procedures. While the repercussions of this controversy will still extend throughout the forecast period, as a result surgeons are giving greater attention to stronger patient consent protocols including full disclaimers of the risks involved.
The negative publicity regarding slings has had the greatest impact in countries without public healthcare. In Australia, there has been a faster response to treat patients with adverse effects with no additional costs for the patient. This has led to fewer lawsuits and complaints regarding the procedure helping to keep the market stable.
Despite the contraction of the urinary incontinence sling market, the number of procedures is still substantial. The number of patients suffering from female urinary incontinence is increasing. The number of patients is also expected to continue increasing throughout the reporting period, as urinary incontinence affects older demographics.
