EUROPEAN SURGICAL PROCEDURE VOLUMES

373 Pages | 87 Exhibits | 2006 Analysis | Forecasts Through 2011

OVERVIEW:
In previous years, conventional, open surgical procedures in the European Union (EU) countries of France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom (U.K.) were common practice for most indications. However, technological advancements in minimally invasive or laparoscopic surgery have been evolving and are expected to drive the trend away from open and invasive surgical procedures in the EU. Key factors include acceptance of innovative technologies, the aging population, patient demand for improved quality of life, and surgical procedures receiving reimbursement code listing.

European open and laparoscopic surgical procedure volumes forecasts presented in this dynamic report from Medtech Insight cover the years 2005 through 2011. Surgical procedures include those from cardiovascular and peripheral vascular surgery; obstetrics and gynecologic surgery; ophthalmic surgery; orthopedic and arthroscopic surgery; otorhinolaryngologic surgery; spine surgery; urologic surgery; and the general surgical areas of adrenalectomy and appendectomy, breast surgery, cholecystectomy, esophagogastric and gastroduodenal surgery, herniorrhaphy, liver biopsy and tumor excision, and splenectomy.

Topics covered by this report include an overview of European healthcare technology assessment agencies; regulatory policies for medical devices, technological advancements in minimally invasive surgery, and trends in healthcare funding and reimbursement in the EU countries of France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the U.K.
