Pulse lavage devices are used in wound care and surgery to clean and irrigate wounds. They are typically used in orthopaedic surgery to clean wounds and remove debris, bacteria, and other contaminants. The pulse lavage system offers various benefits compared to syringes while removing blood and debris to achieve good cement fixation and penetration into the cancellous bone. Pulse lavage prevents microembolization of the marrow contents and minimizes circulatory changes while inserting the prosthesis, reducing the risk of fat embolism. Also, it increases cement strength by removing blood and debris from the bone cavity.


The growth of this market is driven by the increasing number of orthopaedic procedures, growing aging population, and rising number of sports injuries & road accidents. In addition, untapped developing economies offer opportunities for market growth. However, delayed wound recovery due to high-pressure irrigation and inconsistent medical reimbursement policies hinder this market's growth.

Untapped Developing Countries to Offer Opportunities for Pulse Lavage Market Growth

Pulse lavage manufacturers have the opportunity to expand into new markets, such as emerging economies with growing healthcare infrastructures. These markets may offer significant growth opportunities for pulse lavage devices, particularly as the demand for surgical procedures increases.


Developing countries in Asia and Latin America offers high growth opportunities due to the increasing aging population suffering from non-communicable diseases and growing income level and spending on healthcare. Additionally, governments of various developing nations are taking various initiatives to improve healthcare facilities and patient access to healthcare. Countries such as China, Japan, and South Korea are investing heavily in their healthcare systems, leading to an increase in surgical procedures and the adoption of advanced medical technologies such as pulse lavage.


In addition, owing to the high healthcare cost in developed countries, patients are increasingly looking for more affordable options for their healthcare. The rapidly aging population in developed countries and increasing life expectancy are the two major factors that have significantly strained the developed countries' national healthcare systems, thus limiting healthcare access through long waiting lists and high costs. This is driving patients to pursue cross-border healthcare options, leading to the increased demand for pulse lavage in developing countries.
