Global Laparoscopic Devices Market to Reach US$ 8.0 Billion by 2017, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, California (PRWEB) November 16, 2011

Follow us on LinkedIn – Owing to several benefits offered by laparoscopic procedures that include minimal incisions, lesser complications, lesser post-operative trauma, quicker recovery, lesser scarring, reduced hospital stay, and lower infection rates, laparoscopic procedures are gaining popularity among patients. Additionally, cost savings offered by laparoscopy for patients, hospitals and insurance companies also play a vital role in propelling growth the world over. Furthermore, laparoscopic procedures are making a significant contribution in diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in various interventional medical disciplines. Besides their current indications, laparoscopic procedures are constantly being explored as an adjunct in other therapies for treating specific malignancies, including aortic and pelvic lymph node dissection, early cervical cancer and ovarian cancer. Introduction of various tools such as improved imaging systems, multiple robotic devices, temperature-controlled devices, and surgical instruments that offer enhanced articulation and rotation are expected to expand the use of laparoscopic techniques in future.

Global Laparoscopic Devices market witnessed contraction in sales in recent years, as the frequency of elective surgeries including functional endoscopic sinus procedures and laparoscopic bariatric procedures declined owing to recession. Market growth slumped due to consequent cuts in capital equipment expenditure and the same was clearly mirrored in advanced hardware and video equipment markets. However, recovering from the recessionary effects, the market is projected to be driven by higher requirement for functional efficiency, enhanced utilization of hand-assisted devices that reduce injuries and increasing volume of laparoscopic obesity and weight loss procedures, particularly gastric banding. Growth in the market is also backed by increasing acceptance of latest equipment including an advancing array of devices for therapeutic bronchoscopy and single port laparoscopy for enhanced GI lesion detection.

As stated by the new market research report on Laparoscopic Devices, the US continues to remain the single largest regional market. Growth in the Asia-Pacific countries, including India and China, is expected to increase further driven by rising patient population, growing preference for minimally invasive procedures, and increased establishment of private-run hospitals equipped with state-of-the-art facilities. Segment wise, Closure devices constitute the largest product segment. Fastest growth is projected to emerge from Gastric Band segment that is forecast to grow at a double-digit CAGR of about 14%. Increasing cases of obesity worldwide is driving volume of laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) procedure. The LAGB procedure significantly reduces intake of food and subsequent fat absorption, with lesser critical complications when compared to the other popular procedures including gastric bypass surgery.

The laparoscopy/endoscopy market on the global front is consolidated. A small number of companies lead the global market, while the remaining marketplace constitutes research organizations, startup firms and small ventures. Major players profiled in the report include Allergan, Inc., Aesculap AG, Boston Scientific Corp., Cardinal Health, Inc., Covidien Ltd., Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Inc. Karl Storz GmbH & Co. KG, Microline Surgical, Olympus Medical Systems Corp., Smith & Nephew, Inc., and STRYKER Corp.

A Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) isued to block implementation of the International Marriage Broker Regulation Act (IMBRA) — European Connections & Tours, Inc. vs. Gonzalez, et al., No. 1:06-cv-00426-CC, U.S.D.C., N.D. Ga. (Temporary Restraining Order, March 07, 2006, Cooper, D.J.)

Crestview, FL (PRWEB) March 10, 2006

Citizens Against Dating Discrimination (CADD), U.S. international online dating Webmasters.

United States District Judge Clarence Cooper out of the Northern District of Georgia Atlanta Division issued the TRO on March 7, 2006, barring the government from enforcing the International Marriage Broker Act of 2005 against European Connections & Tours Inc. A Preliminary Injunction Hearing in this matter is now scheduled for March 20, 2006. (European Connections & Tours, Inc. vs. Gonzalez, et al., No. 1:06-cv-00426-CC, U.S.D.C., N.D. Ga.)

CADD’s stance is that IMBRA fails to protect immigrant women from abuse and also violates American men’s privacy rights in the process.

As one CADD member said:

“This law requires international dating webmasters to be policemen and collect background information on male members. The law requires this background information to be forwarded to any lady a male wants to meet at the introduction stage without regard to his privacy. Without the gentleman getting to know the lady,this information could be used as leverage by an unethical lady for financial gain and U.S. law has no jurisdiction in her country to stop her from spreading his personal information throughout the internet.”

CADD maintains that it is not fair for giant sites like Match.com to be exempt from doing background checks. Members of CADD are appalled at the law’s hypocrisy for protecting immigrant women from abuse by exempting larger corporate sites like Match.com and other similar corporate dating sites from having to abide by the law’s guidelines.

One CADD member said that we have asked the following question of feminist, politicians, and other supporters of IMBRA and yet to get an adequate answer:

“If the intent of IMBRA is to protect immigrant women from abuse, why exempt larger corporate sites with their huge male membership base of U.S. men interested in meeting immigrant women?”

Further elaboration by the same CADD member said:

“Immigrant women are just as likely to meet an abusive male on one of these larger exempted sites and maybe even more so since they have a larger male membership base than many of the smaller international sites combined”

In CADD’s research they found that Federal judges don’t often issue a TRO barring the enforcement of a federal law. CADD believes the court has shown a substantial likelihood of prevailing in this case on the merits of IMBRA being unconstitutional, unfair business practice, an invasion of male’s privacy and does not offer substantial proof that the law’s intent to protect immigrant women from abuse has merit without prejudice and equality under the law.

As one CADD member said:

“We have been working night and day to save our mom and pop websites. But, more importantly, to preserve our freedoms, liberties and the right to date whom we want without concerns that our personal information will be used as public record by citizens from other countries. It’s a tough law to fight because of popular buzz words like human trafficking, but we ask the politicians and lawmakers to look beyond the buzz words. Instead, look at the law’s prejudice and unjust implications to U.S. male citizens while at the same time it imposes stiff requirements on smaller international sites and exempts larger corporate sites with their huge male membership base.”

CADD’s other Public Release addressed many of our concerns about this law and even addressed a common sense solution at: http://www.prweb.com/releases/2006/3/prweb354100.htm CADD believes that once lawmakers read the law (it was passed on a simple undemocratic “voice vote” in the House and a “unanimous consent” vote by the Senate) it will be repealed and replaced with common sense legislation.

CADD believes that IMBRA cannot survive serious legal challenges or media scrutiny. As stated on page 9 of the certified statement by European Connections:

“The number of foreign women profiled who are listed on websites exempted by law such as Match.com, Yahoosingle.com and Friendfinder.com dwarf the total number of profiles listed by International Marriage Brokers worldwide. For example, I have performed a search at Friendfinder.com. I found 354,166 foreign and 553,976 women listed on their site. None of these women, whether foreign or national, are protected by the act.”

CADD believes the government should repeal IMBRA now, work on common sense laws to protect U.S. male’s privacy and provide practical solutions to protecting immigrant women from abuse without causing undo hardship to smaller international dating sites in favor of exempting larger sites from the same requirements. Until such time, CADD and its members will work hard to raise awareness about these issues.
