Stone Baskets, Access Sheaths, Balloon Dilators, Urological Guidewires, and Ureteral Catheters are tracked in this market. Stone baskets also called ureteral stone extractors, are used to move and remove stones from the upper urinary tract. Access sheaths are used to facilitate repeated entrance into the ureter and collecting system, to lower the intra-renal pressure, protect the ureteroscope, and protect the ureter when extracting stone fragments. Balloon dilators are used for ureteral dilation prior to ureteral stone manipulation or ureteroscopy, as well as for dilation of the intramural ureter. Guidewires are used to gain ureteral access to establish a tract and to assist in the placement, such as to insert a ureteral stent, dilate the ureter or gain percutaneous access to the kidney. Ureteral catheters are used to reduce the incidence of postoperative ureteral edema and ureteral stricture development, and possibly to assist in the passage of small stone fragments.
The stone management disposables market in South Korea can expand or contract due to a variety of reasons including population demographics, disease incidence and prevalence, macroeconomic issues, and geopolitical considerations. Disruption to a market could be caused by a sudden, unexpected change in these factors, but it could also be driven by changes in clinical practice, leading to a change in diagnosis or treatment of patients, as part of a process to generally improve medical practice.
