European Market Report for Stone Treatment Devices 2016 - MedCore

The total market for stone management devices includes ESWL capital equipment, Holmium laser fibers, stone fragment retrieval devices and ureteral stents. These products are often used during endoscopic stone management procedures either in conjunction with ISWL procedures or by themselves. Growth in demand for nitinol stone fragment retrieval devices will bolster this segment's market value. Procedures involving Holmium lasers are known as laser lithotripsy procedures; only Holmium lasers are used in stone management. The ESWL device market is expected to maintain stable growth. There is a trend of urologists moving from one- or two-person practices to hospital employment, which limits unit sales growth for capital equipment. Most units sold in the ESWL market will be replacement units.


There are numerous methods for treating and removing kidney and urinary stones. Treatments can be classified as either extracorporeal or endoscopic stone management procedures. Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) treatment uses an ultrasound device to fragment the stone until it is small enough to be passed through the urethra. This is a non-invasive outpatient procedure that generally takes one hour to complete and is performed under local anesthesia. Typically, ESWL is used for small- to medium-sized stones between 1/6 inch and one inch in size. On average, stones re-form in 20% of ESWL patients because fragments are not completely excreted. Complications associated with ESWL include blocked urine flow from fragments in the urinary tract, bleeding and urinary tract infection. In addition, ESWL is rarely used on cystine kidney stones because these do not break up easily.
