Global Surgical Sealants Market Forecast in New Report from MedMarket Diligence, LLC

Products for hemostasis, sealing, closure and other wound management reflect diverse technologies, as advanced types steadily make inroads in to traditional wound products. MedMarket Diligence has published its 2012 global analysis of this market.
March 5, 2012 - PRLog -- Products for advanced wound closure and management include fibrin (and other) sealants, hemostats, bio-based and other high-strength surgical glues, and post-surgical adhesion prevention.  These products have gained acceptance and use in a wide range of clinical applications and have created strong revenue streams with respectable growth rates, in some cases well in excess of 10% annually.  Traditional sutures, staples and clips nonetheless represent a mainstay of wound management and, consequently, a sought-after potential for continued penetration by advanced wound closure products, according to the 2012 report by MedMarket Diligence, "Worldwide Surgical Sealants, Glues, Wound Closure and Anti-Adhesion Markets, 2010-2017", described at

"It is remarkable that some of the oldest technologies in wound management -- tapes and sutures -- still drive so much revenue, yet the continued disparity in annual growth rates between these products and advanced wound closure products underlies the continued penetration of the market by fibrin sealants, collagen sealants, bio-glues, cyanoacrylates (and their analogs) and post-surgical adhesion prevention products," says Patrick Driscoll of MedMarket Diligence, publisher of the 2012 Surgical Sealants report.  According to Driscoll, the adoption of advanced wound closure products by a wide range of clinicians reflects the inherent utility of these products for varied wound management roles as much as it reflects a diligent effort by manufacturers to ensure that product performance (and cost) are compatible with the clinical management of wounds.
