Global Duodenoscopes Market - Overview
Duodenoscope is flexible, lighted weighted tubes that are released through the mouth, throat, and stomach into the top of the small intestine. These are specially designed side viewing endoscope for Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) procedures, which will help to diagnose diseases associated with pancreas and bile ducts with the help of fluoroscopic imaging procedure. Duodenoscopes are being used in more than 650,000 gastrointestinal procedures in the U.S every year. This is a minimally invasive way to drain out fluids from biliary and pancreatic ducts which are blocked by cancerous tumors, gallstones or others. The global Duodenoscopes Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.83% during the forecast period 2017-2023.
Duodenoscope is a more complex device with respect to other endoscopes and is tougher to clean and disinfect. These devices plays an essential role in the treatment of patients, but there has been some evidences which shows that some patients have been transmitted with hospital born and other infectious agents, including antibiotic drug-resistant infections due to these devices. In 2013, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) alerted the FDA regarding possible association of multidrug resistant bacterial infections and duodenoscopes. From January 2013 through December 2014, ERCP was associated with infections in 135 patients.
