About Hernia Repair Devices
Hernia is the protrusion of a tissue, organ, or fascia of an organ through the wall of a weak surrounding muscle. The condition can be of several types: inguinal, umbilical, hiatal, femoral, and incisional. Inguinal hernia affects men more often than women. Obesity, poor nutrition, smoking, and weakening of muscles during childbirth are some of the causes leading to the condition. Herniorrhaphy, hernioplasty, and herniotomy are the surgical procedures that involve the use of hernia repair devices to correct the condition.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Lichtenstein hernioplasty is among the most common tension-free hernia repair procedures used in healthcare settings. The procedure involves the use of a piece of mesh to bridge the hernia, which decreases the tension on the weakened abdominal wall. Minimal postoperative problems, reduced risk of hernia recurrences, short hospital stays, faster healing times, and short recovery times are just some advantages of tension-free repair procedures. Indeed, these features compel surgeons to higly recommend such procedures for hernia repair.”
According to the report, the National Center for Health Statistics in the US reported that about five-million Americans are diagnosed with a hernia (inguinal, umbilical, hiatal, femoral, and incisional) each year. Inguinal hernias account for about 80% of all types of hernia and is 10 times more common in men than women. Each year over 500,000 men in the US require surgical repair to treat a hernia. Poor nutrition, smoking, changing lifestyles, pregnancy, and genetic factors can all cause hernias. Aging and obesity can weaken the muscles in the abdomen and lead to the development of hernias.
Further, the report states that complications associated with mesh materials, such as pain due to mesh contraction, chronic infection, and hernia recurrence, discourage people from opting for hernia repair devices in healthcare settings, which has a negative impact on market growth.
