Numerous reasons are responsible for the growth of gynecological devices, and most importantly, it is the prevalence of diseases in the female reproductive system.
FREMONT, CA:Gynecology is a branch of physiology and medicine that deals with the health problems associated with the female reproductive system, including ovaries, vagina, uterus, and female breast. The rise in the female population and the prevalence of diseases in their reproductive system is responsible for the development of new devices in the market. The hard to treat diseases, to name a few, vaginal melanoma, uterine and cervical cancer, external bleeding, and irregular menstrual cycles have increased the demand for gynecological devices.
The diagnostic imaging devices are undergoing growth at a rapid rate as people wish to forecast the impending danger owing to fatal diseases like breast and cervical cancer. It includes MRI, CT scan, ultrasound, and others. Ultrasonography is the first-line imaging modality. To establish a definitive diagnosis, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging can narrow the differential diagnosis. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses strong magnetic fields and radio waves to produce images of the inside of the body. While CT provides images by exposing patients to low-dose radiation, ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to create pictures of the inside of the body. Further, gynecology endoscopy permits the examination, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases related to the female reproductive organs. The technique examines and diagnoses gynecology-related diseases such as uterine cancer, cervical cancer, polycystic ovary syndrome, and vaginal melanoma.
To treat diseases in the female reproductive system, gynecologists use hand instruments like forceps, clamps, vaginal speculums, cervical dilators, and punch forceps. Each device serves a specific purpose, and the instruments mentioned above are generally used for caesarian birthing, hysterectomy, and obstetrics and gyne surgery. Gynecologists use cervical dilators for stretching the cervical wall and dilating the cervical muscles. They utilize vaginal speculums to carry out procedures like a pap smear. Endometrial ablation devices are used for patients suffering from abnormal uterine bleeding where the device is inserted through the cervix to the uterus. It emits precisely measured radio-frequency energy to safely remove the endometrium, and then allowing the uterine lining to shed after a period.
