Technological advancements in suprapubic catheterizations is a major factor driving growth of the suprapubic catheterization market. For instance, S-Cath System developed by Mediplus ltd. utilizes the Seldinger technique, which is a patented system for suprapubic catheterization that facilitates one tract accurate and precise entry for catheters, decreasing the risks associated with standard blind methods. The Seldinger technique uses a guidewire to place the catheter in the bladder to reduce the risk of bladder or bowel injury.
Moreover, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and the British Association of Urological Surgeons (BAUS) recommended the use of S-Cath System to reduce the risks of conventional products used for SPC. In July 2005, Mediplus received CE marking from European Union for S-Cath system and, in December 2015, Class IIb CE marking for S-Cath System was renewed.
Moreover, increasing preference for suprapubic catheters over indwelling catheters, owing to complications associated with indwelling catheters including epididymitis, hematuria, bladder stones, and bladder cancer is expected to boost the suprapubic catheter market size. For instance, in 2018, in a study at Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center, 42% of catheterized patients with indwelling catheter were uncomfortable, 48% complained about pain, and 61% of catheterized patients with indwelling catheters experienced restriction in body activities.
