The device that is used by gynecologist to perform endometrial ablation on an outpatient basis are known as endometrial ablation systems. Endometrial ablation is a procedure that is used for the treatment of abnormal uterine bleeding (menorrhagia). The Hydro ThermAblator System destroys all or most of the tissue that is responsible for abnormal menstrual bleeding (the endometrium). It is potential alternative to hysterectomy and for other major surgical procedure. The procedure is generally safe, minimize recovery time, and have minimal side effects. The Hydro ThermAblator System utilizes procedure sheath which is placed in cervix after slight dilation of cervix by hot saline. The system allows saline heated to 90 degree Celsius which is to be circulated through uterus. As the heated saline comes in contact with the uterine walls, the saline will begin to heat the endometrium. This heat is intended to destroy the affected tissue of endometrium.
The global endometrial ablation Systems market is segmented based on techniques, end user and geography. Based on the Technology, the market is segmented into Cryoablation, Radiofrequency Ablation, Hydrothermal Ablation, Hysteroscopic Ablation, Thermal Balloon, and Others. On the basis of end user the market is segmented into Hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers and others. Hospital segment is expected to hold maximum share of the market due to increase in number of hospital visits and hospital stay. Increase in incidence and prevalence of gynecological disease expected to fuel the growth of the global Endometrial Ablation Systems Market in forecast period. Furthermore, technological advancement, and growing awareness about ablation technique further contribute to the growth of the market. However, stringent regulatory environment and risk associated with hydro termablator system impede the growth of the global Endometrial Ablation Systems Market.
Based on geography, the global endometrial ablation systems market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa. In terms of revenue, North America followed by Europe is major contributor for the global endometrial ablation systems market. This is because rise in incidence and prevalence of menorrhagia and other gynecological related diseases, presence of developed healthcare infrastructure, increasing research and drug development activities, presence of major players, and growing number of merger and acqusition, propels the growth of the market in the region. Asia Pacific is third promising revenue contributor which is expected to grow at rapid pace in upcoming year. Countries such as Japan, India and China are major contributors for this market. Emerging and huge population base countries such as China and India offer tremendous market opportunities for the global Endometrial Ablation Systems Market.
