Self-inflating tissue expanders are the self-filling devices consisting osmotic active hydrogel in them. The size of expander while implanting is about 10% of it’s final volume after implantation. Self-inflating tissue expanders absorbs the body fluid when implanted and gradually swells to their predetermined volume and size. The self-inflating expanders are temporary implants which remain for about 10 days to 6 months inside the body, the swelling of self-inflating tissue expander result in gain in skin volume. The swelling of the self-inflating tissue expander is gradual and gives wound ample amount of time to heal which results in decreased pain. Self-inflating tissue expanders are used for various propose such as defect coverage (scar, alopecia), breast anomalies, breast reconstruction, etc. The manufacturers in the self-inflating tissue expander market are focusing on developing a least painful, different size self-inflating tissue expander.
Self-Inflating Tissue Expander Market: Drivers and Restraints
Increasing product availability of the self-inflating expanders in small sizes with increasing number of skilled professionals expected to enhance the growth of the self-inflating tissue expander market. Varied use of the self-inflating tissue expanders in various fields such as aesthetics, ophthalmology, dental care, etc. expected to drive the growth of the self-inflating tissue expander market. The implantation of the self-inflating tissue expander has very less surgical time and along with local anesthesia helps to improve the patient compliance which in turn fuels the growth of the market. Availability of different shapes and sizes such sphere and pin helps physicians to select the preferred type of self-inflating tissue expander as per requirement, driving the growth of the market. The material used (hydrogel) for self-inflating tissue expander helps to minimize the pain at the implanted site resulting in improved patient compliance and ease of carrying an implant which in turn expected to drive the growth of the market. Increasing breast reconstruction procedures across the world expected to draw traction driving the growth of the self-inflating tissue expander market. The use of the self-inflating tissue expander in the ophthalmology and dental care is increasing rapidly to correct the birth defects which is expected to fuel the growth of the self-inflating tissue expander market.
