An adhesion barrier is a medical device used to avoid adhesion occurred during surgery. Adhesion barrier is used to separate internal tissues and organ to avoid formation of scar tissues named adhesion. Visceral or parietal peritoneum damage leads to adhesion formation. Adhesion can lead to chronic pain, bowel obstruction and infertility. These are common risk occurred during surgery. Abdominal surgery gives rise to large number of adhesions compared to other procedure. These are prepared from expanded polyterafluorethylene, oxidized regenerated cellulose, carboxymethlcellulose and sodium hylauronate. Some of the major applications of adhesion barrier are abdominal surgery, gynaecological surgery and other surgical procedures. Adhesion treatment includes manual technique known as wurn technique, chinese herbal medicines and surgery. Chinese herbal medicines are used by people who prefer natural medication for adhesion treatment. On the other hand, surgical intervention is the most common procedure used to treat adhesion. Laparoscopy and laparotomy are two predominant method of surgery which gives rise to adhesion.
North America is expected to dominate adhesion barrier market followed by Europe due to rising usage of adhesion barriers in variety of surgeries and increasing number of product launches. Asia Pacific region is expected to grow at a moderate rate due to rising patient’s awareness for better healthcare facilities and increasing out of pocket healthcare expenditures.
Some of the market drivers for the growth of adhesion barriers market are rising aging population, increasing number of surgical procedures and rising healthcare expenditures. In addition, rising patient’s awareness for better healthcare are also boosting the growth of global adhesion barriers market. However, stringent regulations for medical devices and limited knowledge about adhesion barriers in developing countries inhibit the global adhesion barriers market.
Increasing number of laparoscopy surgery is one of the major challenges for the growth of global adhesion barriers market. Increasing gynecological and abdominal surgeries in the Asia Pacific region is recent market trend observed in global adhesion barriers market. In addition, technological advancements in new products launches for adhesives barriers are another trend observed in the adhesion barriers market. Some of the key market players of global adhesion barriers market are Baxter, Covidien Plc, Ethicon, Inc., Sanofi, Novozymes Fizomed Ltd. SyntheMed, Inc., Innocoll and Magen OrthoMed.
