Key Market Trends

Flexible Endoscopy Segment Dominates the UK Endoscopy Devices Market

Flexible endoscopes provide visibility for the internal side of the organ, which generally cannot be seen with a normal view. In order to perform ENT procedures, for instances, throat cancer, sleep apnea, chronic cough, vocal cord dysfunction, and disorders related to swallowing, flexible endoscopes are extensively used in hospitals, clinics, and other medical facilities. This further boosts the growth of the endoscopic devices market. When a flexible endoscopic device comes into contact with a patient's tissue, blood, urine, saliva, or stool, appropriate cleaning is important, in order to avoid harmful effects caused by contamination. The most common types of flexible endoscopy for the gastrointestinal tract are oesophagogastroduodenoscopy (OGD) and colonoscopy. Recent research studies reported that flexible endoscopy under conscious sedation with overtubes is likely to show a high success rate. These devices may improve the safety of patients and minimize personnel exposure to liquid chemical germicides and their vapors. Procedural limitations of flexible endoscopy are rare; some of them include, incomplete investigation, patients’ discomfort, and complications, such as perforation, and risks of sedation.
