Anoscope Market Introduction

Anoscopy is a diagnostic examination of the anal or rectal disease with the help of a device called anoscope. Anoscope insertion tube comprises an optic light bundle that transmits light rays from the source located at the proximal tip of the tube and image from distal tip to an eyepiece or camera chip. The anoscope tip is inserted into the anal part of the body. It is then advanced slowly into the rectum for examination. Anoscope is generally used to diagnose anorectal conditions such as hemorrhoids, rectal bleeding, incontinence, fistula, and fissure. Disposable anoscope is a single-time use facility, which does not require sterilization or cleaning procedures. This eliminates the chances of contamination. 

Anoscope Market - Competitive Landscape

Increase in prevalence of anal and rectal disorders and improved techniques to detect abnormalities in the rectum are major factors expected to boost the global anoscope market during the forecast period. Shape modification is one of the methods to improve potency and function of the anoscope. Several modifications in shape and size have been carried out during the last 10 years. Rotating anoscope, disposable anoscope, and anoscope with integrated LED light source are the modified anoscopes. For instance, disposable anoscope has been developed on the idea that single use anoscope is preferred over reusable anoscope due to several factors such as low cost, patient comfort, safety from contamination, etc. Conventional anoscope is costly and requires maintenance due to increased risk of cross-contamination if not cleaned properly after use.

Anoscope Market – Dynamics

Rise in Incidence of Colon and Rectum Diseases across Globe

The incidence and prevalence of rectum and colon diseases across the world has been increasing at a rapid pace. This is likely to be a major factor boosting the global anoscope market during the forecast period. As per the study by the National Health Interview Survey, the National Hospital Discharge Survey, and the National Disease and Therapeutic Index; from England and Wales, the Morbidity Statistics from General Practice, results showed that 10 million people in the U.S. complained of hemorrhoids, corresponding to a prevalence rate of 4.4%. In both sexes, a peak in prevalence was noted from age 45 to 65 years, with subsequent decrease after 65 years of age. In the epidemiology study of constipation, which demonstrated an exponential increase in prevalence after age 65 yr and was more in families with low incomes or low social status.

Early diagnosis and prompt treatment of colon and rectum disorders is essential to achieve positive outcome. Up to 20% of patients with colon cancer initially experience symptoms of acute colonic obstruction. Emergency surgery plays a major role in the management of these patients. However, emergency decompressive surgery on unprepared and obstructed bowel carries a significant risk of morbidity (32% to 64%) and mortality. Patients often present late with inoperable tumors or are too weak to be considered for surgery. This carries significant morbidity and mortality. Delay in diagnosis of the disease and treatment can lead to fatal conditions.
