Japan Market Report for Female Urinary Incontinence Slings 2017 – Research and Markets

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Japan Market Report for Female Urinary Incontinence Slings 2017 - MedCore" report to their offering.

The female urinary incontinence sling market in Japan differs from the global market because biological slings are not commercially available. Synthetic slings comprise almost an exclusive monopoly for the type of products offered, with autologous tissue repair accounting for a nominal percentage of total procedures. Additionally, synthetic mesh is not sold as individual kits in Japan. Hospitals purchase rolls of synthetic mesh and the physician cuts the mesh to size. The Japanese market is further differentiated by the lack of competition. Boston Scientific and Ethicon are the only two competitors offering products on the market.

In 2016, the female urinary incontinence sling market began to recover slightly. The volatility in the market is attributed towards ongoing scrutiny by healthcare regulatory agencies such as the FDA in the United States and adverse reactions documented by the Japan Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology (JSOG). The controversy surrounding urinary incontinence slings predominantly concerns synthetic slings. Due to the negative side effects publicized about slings, however, procedures using both synthetic and biological slings have decreased globally. The adverse side-effects have resulted in patients and, to a lesser degree, physicians, becoming more cautious about sling procedures. While the repercussions of this controversy will still extend throughout the forecast period, as a result surgeons are giving greater attention to stronger patient consent protocols including full disclaimers of the risks involved.
