Nasal Packing Devices Market: Overview
Nasal packing can be defined as the placement of intranasal device for the application of constant local pressure on the nasal septum. Nasal packing adds direct pressure and reduces mucosal irritation, decreases bleeding and enables clot formation around the foreign body. Nasal packing is considered to be the second line of treatment for epistaxis, which is also known as nosebleed, when cauterization is unsuccessful. Nasal packing is used for the treatment of anterior and posterior epistaxis. Traditional nasal packing includes a ribbon gauze, which is impregnated with lubricant or antibiotic ointment. The recent advancements in the nasal packing include hygroscopic foam packing that is capable of absorbing liquid over 10 to 20 times its weight. Upon hydration, these packing materials compress the vasculature.
Nasal Packing Devices Market: Key Trends
Increasing prevalence of epistaxis is a primary factor propelling the nasal packing devices market. According to International Journal of Otolaryngology, over 12% of the global population suffered from epistaxis in 2015, of which over 75% of the population required medical attention. Epistaxis is one of the common clinical conditions that causes bleeding from the nostrils, the primary cause of which is considered to be hypertension. Growing prevalence of hypertension boosts the market. Expansion of circulatory system during pregnancy leads to an increase in circulation of blood, which leads to nosebleeds. Therefore, rise in the number of pregnant women suffering from hypertensive diseases drives the market. Furthermore, increase in prevalence of nasal tumors fuels the market. However, complications associated with nasal packing such as those associated mucosal lacerations, which can worsen bleeding and cause infectious complications and toxic shock syndrome (TSS) is hamper the demand for nasal packing devices. This, in turn, inhibits the nasal packing devices market during the forecast period. However, rise in the number of product launches and strong focus on technological developments propel the market.
