About Urolithiasis Management Devices
Urolithiasis is the development of kidney stones in the urinary system. It includes nephrolithiasis (development of kidney stones), ureterolithiasis (stone formation in ureters), and cystolithiasis (stone formation in the bladder). Urolithiasis is a common condition that affects at least 10% of the global population. Urinary stones are generally distinguished based on the location and chemical composition. Based on chemical composition, these are categorized into calcium, uric acid, and oxalate stones.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Urolithiasis Management Devices Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global urolithiasis management devices market: Boston Scientific, Cook Medical, C.R. Bard, and KARL STORZ.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Dornier MedTech, Elmed Electronics & Medical Industry & Trade, EMS - Electro Medical Systems, Medispec, Olympus Medical, Richard Wolf, and Siemens Healthineers.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is technological advancements in lithotripsy. The recent advances and development in the last three decades have created great improvements in clinical and technology applications of MI procedures in the urological field. Kidney stone management by lithotripters has shown positive results in the mechanism of stone disintegration, stone localization, coupling, and shock wave focusing. Flexible ureteroscopy (fURS) is a widely used diagnostic and therapeutic tool for multiple urinary tract pathologies.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is increasing incidence of urolithiasis. There is a rise in the incidence of urolithiasis witnessed in the recent times. Urolithiasis is one of the most common and painful urological disorders occurring across the globe. Kidney stone disease has a lifetime prevalence recorded across the world.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is complications associated with lithotripsy. Some of the most common lithotripsy complications include abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting, ureteral colic, fever, and skin ecchymosis. ESWL is one of the highly effective treatments for the removal of kidney stones. However, the shock waves used to break most stones may be harmful. These waves can cause vascular trauma to the kidney and the surrounding organs. They can also cause severe damage in certain cases resulting in permanent loss of functional renal volume.
