Oct. 11, 2010 - PRLog -- Products in wound closure and "securement" serve to close wounds, seal wounds, stop bleeding, provide structural support to healing tissues and even prevent the formation of post surgical adhesion.  A robust offering of products is now in use by surgeons in general, gynecologic, orthopedic, gastrointestinal, neuro, cosmetic, vascular and nearly all other surgical specialties.

According to research completed by MedMarket Diligence (in the report "Surgical Sealants, Glues, Wound Closure and Anti-Adhesion Worldwide"), these products have, over the past several years, steadily penetrated caseload and market share of surgical sutures, staples and other traditional wound closure products, in addition to their adjunctive use (e.g., as in surgical sealants and glues used to reinforce/seal suture lines).  Their routine use in clinical practice has also given surgeons the experience and confidence to apply them to new procedures.

"Traditional wound closure products like sutures and staples still command a sizable portion of the market, but their overall use growing at a relatively flat 3%, or declining in many applications and geographic markets," says Patrick Driscoll of MedMarket Diligence. "But fibin sealants, bioglues, high-strength sealants, hemostatic agents have been growing, even by a conservative estimates, at 10%-15% per year.

MedMarket Diligence has completed its market forecasts for fibrin sealants, high strength glues, hemostats, sutures, tapes and anti-adhesion products.  The forecast data is available now, but will also be integrated in the global report #S180, “Surgical Sealants, Glues, Wound Closure & Anti-Adhesion Worldwide, 2010-1015.”
