Covid -19 Impact On The Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia Treatment Market
The market for BPH treatment is anticipated to be considerably affected due to the outbreak of COVID-19. Since hospitals would face a huge demand for resources to fight against a possible increase of COVID-19 cases, elective surgeries of benign pathology had been recommended to be delayed until the strain on the hospital system from COVID-19 decreases. Owing to this, surgical procedures such as TURP, HoLEP, ThuLEP, and PVP had been postponed.
According to a recent study, nearly 2.5 million urological benign surgeries were estimated to be canceled during the peak of disruption by COVID-19. However, the number of alternative surgical procedures has increased. For instance, laser treatment can be adopted by additional surgery centers and other outpatient facilities not focused on COVID-19 patients.
