Global Ablation Devices Market - Drivers, Opportunities, Trends, and Forecasts: 2017-2023
Ablation refers to the surgical removal of a body tissue in the form of transferring heat to the target tissue. The process is used to remove a tiny or large quantity of tissue. There are many types of ablations and have multiple techniques, which are used to perform the removal of tissue, depending on the type of tissue. A specially equipped needle is inserted near the site with image-guided modalities such as computed tomography (CT), ultrasonography, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The needle is subjected to various form of electrical tests depending on the type of technology used. The techniques such as radiofrequency with radio waves, cryoablation by liquid nitrogen, and laser ablation by laser beam have proven to be beneficial for individuals who have critical medical conditions such as cardiac arrhythmias, prostate tissue, corneal surface laser ablation, tumors, and chronic pain. Based on the type, the products are classified into different categories such as radiofrequency, ultrasound, electrical, cryoablation, hydrothermal ablation, microwave ablation, and laser.
The rise in awareness about minimally invasive surgeries or procedures has created high adoption as it is less painful, performed as an outpatient procedure, and unlike traditional open surgeries, they require less cost. Minimally invasive surgeries are emerging as potential replacements for conventional therapeutic cancer surgeries for the treatment of various tumors of prostate gland, lungs, and liver. Further, robotic navigation technologies that perform ablation procedures more accurately are being incorporated to increase the popularity of these surgeries. The cost of tissue ablation treatment is directly proportional to the size of the tissue/tumor and the number of probes required for the surgery.
