Growing Use of Radiopaque Laparotomy Sponges In Thoracic Surgical Procedures, Increase In The Number of Cesarean Deliveries, Rising Number of Open Abdominal Procedures, And Advancements In The Detection & Identification Methods To Reduce The Incidence of RSI Are Factors Driving Market Expansion

Rockville, Maryland, UNITED STATES

Seoul, Oct. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As per the latest industry analysis by Fact.MR, market research and competitive intelligence provider, worldwide demand for laparotomy sponges is forecasted to magnify at a CAGR of 6% from 2022 to 2027. Laparotomy sponges are extremely absorbent and of a quality that complies with medical and hygienic standards. Recent advancements in laparotomy sponges such as improved X-ray visibility are boosting market revenue.

The primary drivers for market expansion include an increase in surgical operations as well as the rising prevalence of abdominal illnesses among the senior population. The prevalence of disorders such as colon cancer, hernias, appendicitis, pancreatitis, and peptic ulcers has also increased significantly, creating greater demand for laparotomy procedures. In addition, the use of laparotomy sponges has increased due to the rising number of cesarean surgeries performed in hospitals and medical facilities.

The market is anticipated to see several growth opportunities over the coming years due to the growing use of laparotomy sponges by surgeons to manually remove tissues without spreading any infection. The term "retained surgical item" (RSI) refers to any surgical product that is left inside the body after surgery after the closure of a wound, including sponges, tools, devices, and instruments. For minimizing the incidence of RSI, many options have been created. Manual counting, X-ray detection, RFID integration into laparotomy sponges, and barcode detection are a few of them.

Increase in Cesarean Deliveries Driving Demand for Laparotomy Sponges

According to Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, demand for laparotomy sponges is projected to increase at a CAGR of 6% from 2022 to 2027.

Laparotomy sponges, also known as absorbent pads, are used in the medical field to remove subdural hematomas surrounding incisions or surgical sites and to absorb excess fluid or blood. They are produced with materials such as cotton, rayon, and nylon polyester, which are hygienic and up to medical requirements, and allow for the greatest amount of fluid absorption.

The use of these sponges also includes cleansing and moisture retention at an incision site. Additionally, doctors utilize them to grasp and carefully remove tissue or an organ without risking injury.

A laparotomy sponge serves as an absorbent swab used in clinical procedures when abdominal surgery is performed. When preparing an emergency room for surgery, laparotomy sponges are utilized in a variety of applications, usually in surgical equipment. Laparotomy sponge production uses both sterilized and non-sterile packaging, giving specialists plenty of options to choose from depending on their needs. The sponge used during laparotomies can come in a variety of sizes and forms. When leaving laparotomy sponges left following surgery, more care must be taken to prevent accidents.
