Chapter 91: Global Markets for Vaginal Slings
In 2004, the global vaginal sling market comprising revenue from the US, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America was valued at over $180 million and experienced double digit growth over 2003. The fixationless vaginal sling market will continue to expand over the forecast period due to the following factors:
- growing demand for the positive clinical outcomes and minimal patient trauma that fixationless vaginal slings offer incontinence sufferers,
- increased patient awareness about vaginal sling urinary incontinence (UI) treatment, and
- adoption of more expensive fixationless slings enabling a transobturator approach—transobturator vaginal slings have been designed to be less invasive than standard fixationless vaginal slings.
