An adhesion barrier is used to reduce abnormal internal scarring following surgery by separating the internal tissues and organs. Adhesion barriers are used in the abdominal, gynecological, orthopedic, cardiovascular, reconstructive, and urological surgeries.

Adhesion barriers are mostly used in cardiovascular surgeries to heal the coronary artery. The gel and film formulations of adhesion barriers are widely used as compared to the liquid formulation. The application of adhesion barriers is increasing with the increasing number of surgical procedures.

The adhesion barriers in gel form are sterile, transparent and highly viscous, they act as a barrier to prevent or reduce post-surgical adhesions at the surgical site. Hyalobarrier gel (Anika Therapeutics) is one of the examples of commercially available gel formulation. The liquid form of adhesion barrier is generally made of high molecular glucose polymers, such as Icodextrin, which prevent the internal tissue surfaces and the organ from adhering to each other during and post-surgery.

The commercially available adhesion barriers in liquid form are Adept (Baxter International Inc.) and Bio-Gide Perio (Geistlich Pharma Inc.). Adept acts as an anti-adhesion by hydroflotation. The film form of adhesion barrier is made of biodegradable materials such as collagen and gelatin. Some of the commercially available film formulations are GYNECARE INTERCEED (Johnson & Johnson (Ethicon Inc.), Seprafilm (Sanofi), and Epifilm (Anika Therapeutics), they are used based on the application.

Use of adhesion barriers is an effective way to reduce or prevent the incidence, severity, extent and consequences of post-surgical adhesions, as there are no other drugs available for prevention of surgical adhesion. Adhesive barriers are the only exclusive solution for post-surgical adhesions, which is expected to drive the demand for adhesion barriers over the forecast period.

Likewise, increasing demand for and availability of adhesion barriers for use in abdominal, gynecological, orthopedic, cardiovascular, reconstructive, and urological surgeries are expected to create enormous growth opportunities for the manufacturers operating in the adhesion barriers market.

Market Dynamics

The growth of the global adhesion barriers market is primarily driven by growing adoption of adhesion barriers with increasing number of surgeries (particularly cardiovascular surgeries) and focus of the key players on lowering the cost of the products. Besides, increasing number of cardiovascular interventions such as coronary revascularization, valvular repair procedures, coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) is also expected to drive the growth of the adhesion barriers market.

The growing awareness regarding use of adhesion barriers post-surgery in developing countries is expected to drive the demand for adhesion barriers and consequently contribute to the growth of the global adhesion barriers market over the forecast period. However, limited applications of few of the product types of adhesion barriers and high cost of surgeries are some of the factors expected to hamper the growth of the global adhesion barriers market over the forecast period.
