Nephrostomy Devices Market Overview
Nephrostomy catheter is the primary option for drainage of an obstructed urine collecting system. Hydronephrosis is the common indication characterized by blockade of one or both the ureters, for which nephrostomy catheters are used. Nephrostomy catheter is generally inserted under local anesthetic, which works by temporarily diverting urine from site of blockade.
Nephrostomy has a success rate of over 95% if performed by properly trained and qualified resources. Nephrostomy is also useful in cases where antibiotics are unable to reach kidney due to obstruction. In such cases, percutaneous nephrostomy is very good treatment alternative as it allows the flow of urine in obstructed area as well as permits the instillation of antibiotics at the site of infection.
Nephrostomy catheter placement is generally performed by interventional radiologists under image guidance in the radiology room or operating room. The most common cause of nephrostomy is the cancer of reproductive organs such as ovarian cancer, colon cancer, etc. Dilation catheters presents the latest solution for challenges to percutaneous dilation.
Although contraindicated in the pregnant women, percutaneous nephrostomy is recommended for selected patients who develop the symptoms of urolithiasis during pregnancy. Other indications in which nephrostomy is recommended include urinary tract infections, bladder prolapse, benign prostate hyperplasia, urinary incontinence etc.
