US Market Report for Stone Management Devices 2016 - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "US Market Report for Stone Management Devices 2016" report to their offering.

There are numerous methods for treating and removing kidney and urinary stones. Treatments can be classified as either extracorporeal or endoscopic stone management procedures.

Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) treatment uses an ultrasound device to fragment the stone until it is small enough to be passed through the urethra. This is a non-invasive outpatient procedure that generally takes one hour to complete and is performed under local anesthesia. Typically, ESWL is used for small to medium-sized stones between 1/6 inch and one inch in size. On average, stones re-form in 20% of ESWL patients because fragments are not completely excreted. Complications associated with ESWL include blocked urine flow from fragments in the urinary tract, bleeding and urinary tract infection. In addition, ESWL is rarely used on cystine kidney stones because these do not break up easily.

Alternatively, urinary tract stones can be removed or managed using endoscopic procedures commonly known as ureteroscopies or cystourethroscopies. A transurethral endoscope carries instruments through the urethra, bladder and ureters in order to fragment or, if the stones are small enough, remove the stones entirely. Stone fragmentation is known as lithotripsy. At the present time, intracorporeal lithotripsy is frequently conducted using Holmium lasers and devices that deliver kinetic or mechanical energy or intracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ISWL) devices. ISWL is a minimally invasive procedure and can be performed on patients for whom ultrasound has been deemed ineffective or insufficient to treat the stones. For urinary tract stones, a ureteroscope is inserted into the ureters through the urethra and bladder, where shock waves are delivered to fragment the stones. This report suite discusses pneumatic, ultrasonic, combination and electrohydraulic lithotripsy.
