Wearable Artificial Kidney Gives Patient Freedom Of Movement

Nephrology And Urology Devices

Wearable artificial kidney is a new trend shaping the nephrology and urology device market and replaces stationary hemodialysis machines. Traditionally, patients undergoing a renal replacement surgery had to be subjected to large blood cleansing machines, disabling free movement and freedom of living. In 2015, the FDA approved the clinical testing of wearable artificial kidney and in 2016, a prototype was tested in the University of Washington. The nephrology and urology devices market has been discussing the feasibility and development of artificial kidneys since more than a decade, and the future seems to be very promising as the test was successful with positive results.

According to The Business Research Company’s Medical Equipment Consultant, Sandeep Kumar Bejini, minimally-invasive surgery refers to nephrology and urology surgical techniques that limit the size of incisions needed thereby decreasing wound healing time, pain and risk of infection. Interventional instruments are directed through the body using catheters instead of making large incisions needed in traditional surgery. NeoTract Inc. developed the UroLift System treatment to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia in men. The procedure involves lifting and holding the enlarged prostate tissue to remove blockage to the urethra. In comparison to traditional surgical techniques, this involves no cutting, heating or removal of prostate tissue. New treatment is also developed for enlarged prostate which involves prostate artery embolization by inserting a catheter into the femoral artery in the thigh. This minimally invasive treatment offers men with an enlarged prostate an effective treatment that results in fewer side effects, reduced risk of urinary incontinence and bleeding compared to other BPH therapies whilst also offering a better quality of life.
