US Markets for Urological Devices 2014

Introduction:

Although some formerly high-growth urological device markets—such as vaginal slings, office-based BPH treatment devices, and brachytherapy seeds—declined in 2013 for various reasons, these decreases were outweighed by rising demand in other markets, such as intermittent catheters, penile implants, flexible ureteroscopes, and nitinol stone retrieval devices. As a result, overall growth will remain moderate in the US urological devices market.

This Medtech 360 Report provides comprehensive data and analysis on the current state of the market for urological devices in the US across a 10-year period.

Millennium Research Group has up-to-date reports on a wide range of medical device markets worldwide.
