Disposable Endoscopic Trocars – An Innovative Breakthrough for Surgeries

Bariatric or heart surgeries require the right instruments to penetrate the tough exteriors of the body. Endoscopy is a common procedure used in diagnosing unusual symptoms or performing certain surgeries. Disposable endoscopic trocars, one of the instruments used in this type of procedure, are witnessing a significant rise in the medical industry.

Why Disposable Trocars?

Disposable trocars are gaining prominence due to the need for fewer sterilization procedures. Reusable trocars may pose a risk of infection; disposable ones, however, present no such risk. They are utilized in embalming procedures to drain bodily fluids and replace them with embalming chemicals.

These instruments are compatible with major surgical instruments to make rapid incisions at injury or wound sites. In order to alleviate pressure on surgeons, robotic surgical assistance systems are being introduced to conduct these surgeries under the supervision of a watchful team.

A Helping Hand

Robotic surgical assistant systems have been introduced in the medical device industry to aid in minimally invasive surgeries (MIS). Their implementation can improve efficiency of surgeons as well as play an integral role in perioperative care.

Intuitive Surgical Inc., an American manufacturer of these systems, is the only company to have gained U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approval for its robotic surgical assistant systems to be used in surgeries. The proprietary da Vinci robots are used in endoscopy and have extended their application to renal and pelvic surgical procedures. They received FDA clearance to use a 3D HD camera in 2014. Companies providing stiff competition to Intuitive are Titan Medical, MAKO Surgical, and TransEnterix.

3D cameras can provide surgeons an orthogonal view of patients without cutting them open. Olympus Surgical Technologies launched an articulating video scope in 2014 to aid surgeons. Its visualization system allows rotation of the device up to 100 degrees and delivers 2D and 3D images with clarity and depth.

Market Overview

The global endoscopic trocars market is projected to gain lucrative returns by 2022, according to a report on Radiant Insights, Inc. It is expected to exhibit a steady CAGR from 2012 to 2022 (forecast period) due to the application of trocars in laparoscopic surgeries. Technological advances in production of these instruments as well as their use in minimally invasive surgeries are expected to bode well for future market growth.

Products in the market are available in varying sizes, ranging from 5 mm to 16 mm. Laparoscopic surgery is the biggest end user, followed by urology and gynecology. North America and Europe are estimated to display similar CAGRs due to high adoption rate of these instruments and sophisticated healthcare infrastructure.

Market Players

Olympus Surgical Technologies; Ackermann Instrument GmbH; Medtronic PLC; and KARL STORZ Endoscopy America Inc. are major players within the market. The market is highly competitive, with players launching novel products to reduce price wars on existing products.
