Reliable Revenues Expected for Catheter Manufacturers: Urology Device Market Led by Coloplast and C. R. Bard

Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) October 07, 2014

According to in-depth reports from iData Research, the leading global authority on medical device market research, the combined U.S. and European markets for urological devices was valued at almost US$ 4.7 billion in 2013, with both Coloplast and C. R. Bard in the top 5 for both markets. The lions share of market value comes from urinary catheter sales, a low-priced medical device with enormous amounts of unit movement.

Catheter sales have been the foundation of the urology device market for years, explains Dr. Kamran Zamanian, CEO of iData, with leading catheter companies also leading the urology market as a whole. This trend isnt likely to abate either. Most other urology devices serve a niche, while urinary catheters are a necessity across many medical fields. In the U.S. and Europe, the urological endoscope market was the second largest, with high priced devices useful for both diagnostic and treatment procedures.

Other key findings from iData Researchs reports on the European Market for Urological Devices and the U.S. Market for Urological Devices:

Inflatable Erectile Dysfunction Devices: In Europe, erectile dysfunction implants are usually only purchased by wealthy individuals, making the small market. In the U.S., these implants are notably reimbursed, making for a U.S. market almost three-times the size of that of Europe.

Stronger Growth in the U.S. Market: While different urology market segments show varying degrees of growth across the U.S. and Europe, kidney stone management and nephrostomy device markets are projected to grow much more significantly in the United States.

European In-Office Treatment: In general, the European urological device market is driven by physicians taking advantage of new and less invasive technology, and treating patients in an office setting as opposed to a hospital; European physicians often see greater reimbursement when treating patients in-office.

U.S. Hospital Treatment: In the U.S., the number of private practices owned and operated by one or two urologists has declined. More urologists are returning to the employment of hospitals or are becoming members of larger group practices. High overhead costs, partly due to malpractice insurance costs, contribute to the economic unsustainability of a private practice setting.

As of 2013, Coloplast led the urological device market in Europe, in no small part, to representing more than 40% of the urinary catheter market. Coloplast has a significant presence in the U.S. as well, mostly in terms of catheters, and has takem the second leading position. The leader of the U.S. market is C. R. Bard, who has dominated catheter sales, but has played a significant role in stone management, prostate cancer treatment, and nephrostomy devices. Other leading companies analyzedfor both the U.S. and Europe include American Medical Systems, Olympus, Boston Scientific, Karl Storz, Covidien and Richard Wolf.

STD Average Cost is Much Higher Per Year According to the Survey By on Its Members

Los Angeles California (PRWEB) February 23, 2014, the number one community for STD dating and support, randomly asked 10,000 of its members from the United States on Feb.20 to learn how much STD cost infected people for treatment per year.

According to the results, the average personal cost is around $ 8,500 – $ 9,500 per year which is higher than the results published by CDC on the 15th February 2013. CDC has reported that $ 16 Billion a year is spent to treat sex diseases with the average annually per person being $ 8,122.

77% of the people who took part in the survey with were aged between 30 to 65 with 23% being between the ages of 20 to 30. The results have shown that with the new health care policy the majority of young people who do not have good insurance are going to struggle with the higher cost of treatment.

STDs do not just affect young adults, it has been reported in the news that there is a serious problem with the over 65s contracting STDs. If this age group does not have the correct medical cover they could find it hard to afford the rising cost of medical care which could result in the STD being transmitted to more elderly people who have an active sex life.

According to Fox News, STDs among our senior citizens is on the rise with some health experts calling on better sexual education for the older generation. Between 2007 to 2007 Chlamydia infections in men and women were over the age of 65 rose by 31 percent, during this time syphilis infections within the same age group rose 52 percent, showing there is a serious information issue on safe sex for senior citizens.

A study which was published in the Annals of Internal Medicine also found that older men were using Viagra to stay sexual active and were six times less likely to follow the safe sex rules of using a condom compared with men in their 20s, showing there is a serious lack of sex education for the older generation still looking for love and relationships.

It is believed the rise in the number of STDs in senior citizens is due to people now living longer and senior citizens are becoming more sexual active as well as they were born before the safe sex message came out.

It is not just senior citizens that health experts have called on for more education, with the youth of day between the ages of 15 and 24 having the highest rates of Chlamydia and Gonorrhea, health experts believe that more education needs to be brought into schools on safe sex especially when a large number of people who have STDs do not know they have it and therefore it goes untreated and passes onto the next person they have sex with.


As the largest and most trusted online dating site for people living with Herpes, HPV, HIV / AIDS, Hepatitis, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphilis and other STDs, is completely anonymous and cares about members privacy more than other sites. You are not required to submit any information that you are not comfortable with on this site. Whatever you are looking for Herpes dating, HPV dating, HIV AIDS dating, or any other STD dating, is the best place.

European Urological Device Market Is Expected to Grow to over 2 billion by 2020: Led by Coloplast, Wellspect HealthCare, Teleflex, C. R. Bard and Olympus

Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) September 02, 2014

According to a new report by iData Research (, the leading global authority in medical device market research, the European urological device market is expected to grow to over 2 billion in 2020. Growth will be fueled by an increase in the number of procedures for the treatment of BPH, nephrostomy, urinary and kidney stones. This market includes TURP devices, laser BPH devices, brachytherapy, urinary catheters, nephrostomy devices, urinary incontinence slings, stone treatment devices, urological endoscopes and erectile dysfunction devices.

Fastest growing market is urological endoscopes which comprise of cystoscopes for endoscopy of the urinary bladder, ureteroscopes for examining the ureter, resectoscopes used in transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) and nephroscopes used to examine the kidneys. Growth in this market will be sustained by the range of procedures that require the use of urological endoscopes. It is estimated that over 1.6 million urological procedures will be performed in Europe by 2020.

Players driving the European urological device market are Coloplast, a prominent player in the markets for nephrostomy devices, urinary incontinence slings, stone treatment devices and erectile dysfunction devices as well as, Wellspect HealthCare, Teleflex, C. R. Bard and Olympus.

Other key findings from the European Urological Device Market Report:

The number of TURP procedures continued to overshadow the number of laser BPH procedures in the treatment of benign prostate hyperplasia. The procedure is nearly as effective as open prostatectomy, but has a lower risk of serious complications such as blood loss, incontinence and impotence.

Growth of the brachytherapy market in Europe will vary by country, with some experiencing a contraction of the market and others experiencing an expansion. The largest percentage of brachytherapy procedures performed are in Germany. Procedures performed in France, the United Kingdom and Italy were also relatively large, although they all experienced moderate declines in procedural volumes.

The nephrostomy device market is dominated by the percutaneous nephrostomy set and balloon dilator segments. Sustained growth in these two segments will drive overall market expansion through 2020.

Maggie's - Avalon, NJ

Maggie's - Avalon, NJ

As summer comes to an end, Juan hits us with a benny review from the shore...

That's right folks. Juan took a trip "down the shore" just to review a benny for you! That's not true, but I do know a lot of you Philly cats spend your weekends down there so I figured I'd check out a place where you can find a benny. Maggie's has a real nice deck, perfect for the outdoor brunch experience. This benny looks pretty good and perfectly lit by some quality beach side sunshine, right? Don't be deceived. This one ranks among the lowest for me. Completely standard, nothing special. Totally drowning in hollandaise! The potatoes were probably the saving grace of this entire dish. I'm going to leave the garbage and Jersey like I should have in the first place and only eat bennys from the 215 from here on out. - Juan

Continental - Olde City

Continental - Olde City - 2nd & Market

Our first brunch experience from one of Mr. Starr's establishments... I was not blown away. As visually appealing as this benny is, it was just about standard. The ham was cut really thin, couldn't taste it as much as I would have liked to. Potatoes were above average, cleverly cut like ruffles potato chips. I will say this benny was reasonably priced at $8.50, however the bloody mary was certainly not at $10. You heard right, my drink was more expensive than my meal. Service was sub-par but there was no shortage of hot lil chickens working at that place, I guess that's the sacrifice. Really not much to say about this benny, it was average. - Juan

Caribou Cafe

Caribou Cafe - 11th and Walnut

Oeufs benedicte w/ merguez lamb sausage

This benny right here was an absolute hit. Garlic muffins, spinach, tomato hollandaise and merguez lamb sausage. The lamb sausage was out of this world, spiced to perfection. Potatoes were also fantastic, tasted like they came off a grille. The Caribou is a nice place, a little swank for your typical hungover weekend brunch, and the price reflects. If I had to say something negative about this benny (which I do) it would be about the meat/egg distribution. As you'll notice in the photo, one muffin was topped with the sausage, the other with an egg. First time I've seen this approach. I'd prefer sausage and egg on BOTH of my muffins please. This benny was too good to be shorted an egg! - Juan

4 out of 5

Oeufs benedicte w/ hangar steak

Not much of a difference here, other than the meat. I do recall my eggs being slightly overdone, which can make or break a benny. I had a taste of Juan's lamb sausage benny and I must say that if I ever returned to the Caribou Cafe, I'd go with that instead of the hangar steak. Presented in the same fashion, the hangar steak benny was pretty decent. The steak itself came out medium-medium well, which is usually how I order my steak. Caribou also offers a salmon benny which unfortunately wasn't reviewed. C. Hunte could have completed the trifecta, but his weak stomach isn't cut out for the world of benny reviewing. Poor guy.

St. Stephen's Green

St. Stephen's Green - 1701 Green St.

There was a time where I would go to St. Stephens Green just about every week for drinks. I didn't know they served brunch until a week ago, and apparently I've been missing out because its hittin. They offer two bennys, a standard benny, and the Florentine Crab benny, which consists of spinach, crab, two poached eggs, and tarragon sauce choron on english muffins. Great benny, great presentation. Somebody suggest a less than stellar benny so I can stop with these gracious ratings.

Silk City

Silk City - 5th and Spring Garden

El Ciudad. Most people who aren't in the know front on Silk City when they see it, and write it off as another grimey diner based on its outer shell. Little do they know that inside lies some of the best food No. Libs has to offer. Their benedict is pretty much your standard benny, with the exception of the meat. Canadian bacon, yes, but 3 pieces of Canadian bacon. Two placed in the classic fashion we all know and love, BUT a third creating a bridge from one benny to the next, as if to help you segue seamlessly into the other benny. Genius.

A Full Plate

A Full Plate - 1009 N. Bodine St

'Go and eat brunch at A Full Plate' should be #1 on your list of plans this weekend. What you see pictured is their Crabcake benny. Two crabcakes topped with mozzarella cheese and poached eggs. One of the best bennys I've had in quite some time. After much discussion with my fellow benny connesieurs, I've determined that A Full Plate is cheating. The crabcakes alone are a meal in and of themselves. They just decided to slap some poached eggs on top to contend with the Abbaye for the number one position on my super important blog. I'm on to you Full Plate...

New Wave Cafe

New Wave Cafe - 784 S. 3rd St.

This picture of the New Wave benny looks about as traditional as an eggs benedict can get. English muffin, ham, poached eggs and bearnaise sauce (gotcha). Very decent benny. Nothing to get too excited about, but I would definitely have another if I found myself looking for a brunch spot in Queen Village. 3/7th's of the Christian St. ladies dug it. I think you will too.

Cafe Estelle

Cafe Estelle - 444 N. 4th Street

Eggs Benny

This benny here reminds me a joke someone once told me, it went something like this. "Apparently smaller cars, cell phones, and laptop computers are really in style right now. Maybe someday smaller penises will be in style...and YOU my friend, will be a legend". Well apparently smaller bennys are in style now too, and I couldn't be more disappointed. I grasp (but do not enjoy) that whole smaller portions trend but c'mon! This is not T.G.I. Fridays people, this is BRUNCH we're talking about. All things aside, this was an outstanding benny. Thinly sliced ham, perfects eggs and hollandaise sauce on a toasty little biscuit. Home fries were also excellent. You should also be aware that Cafe Estelle is a pour-your-own coffee place with 4 different blends to chose from. You also receive a cup to-go after paying. We dig this about you Estelle. Awesome benny, but I left hungry.

This was a solid 4-egg benny but Im knocking it down to 3.5 due to size.

3.5 out of 5

Eggs Francis

Similar story with the Eggs Francis. Great benny, but a bit on the small side. Shrimp, artichokes, bernaise sauce, all on top of an English Muffin fit for a baby. The benny kids meal, the White Castle equivalent of the benny, etc. Don't get it twisted, just because I could have easily eaten 2 more of these doesn't mean that the taste was lacking. A good amount of shrimp/artichokes despite the surface area of the English Muffin!

I highly recommend Cafe Estelle.

The Belgian Cafe

The Belgian Cafe - 21st and Green

I admire any benny that deviates from the norm. In the case of The Belgian Cafe, substituting a Liege waffle for an english muffin seemed ballsy when I first read about it. The waffle, combined with Lancaster ham, poached eggs, and some asparagus made for a surprisingly average benny. Did I expect more out of it? Probably. Was it bad? No. Would I order it again? Probably not.

While I realize that the focus of this blog is on the benny itself, I'd like to stress the importance of potatoes during brunch. Hash browns, home fries, frites, latke... these things matter!

The Sidecar Bar

The Sidecar Bar - 22nd and Christian

Eggs Hussarde

Cajun Tasso ham, broiled tomato, Marchand de Vin sauce, and hollandaise on an english muffin served with potatoes and a salad. A full plate indeed. I wasn't sure what to expect out of the Eggs Hussarde as I've never had this variation of the benny, but it really didn't taste that much different from a regular benny to me. However, the Cajun Tasso ham was noticably different. Great benny, great service.

4 out of 5

Re-New Orleans

You know Juan had to provide hope to the people after Hurricane Katrina... so what did he do? Order the Re-New Orleans eggs benedict! Definitely a change of pace here. No, your eyes are not deceiving you. There is no english muffin OR biscuit under that benny. That my friends, is Crawfish-potato hash. It was incredible, tons of crawfish. Add a couple of poached eggs topped with smoke tomato Choron sauce and you've got the Re-New Orleans. This dish definitely had some of that "Nawlans" creole soul-food spice to it. Off the hook, would also be great to eat for lunch or dinner. Served with a side salad, this may be the first benny that didn't make me want to kill myself after consuming it - Quite refreshing. There's a reason why the lights from the heavens are shining down on the picture of the Re-New Orleans and not the Hussarde. Go find out for yourself

Zot - 122 Lombard Street

This was the weekend I did the impossible. Two bennys in two days. The surgeon general disapproves of even consuming one benny per month, let alone two in two days.

Sunday morning record store trek to west philly with Eli turns into a visit to ZOT, a hidden belgian beer spot that could most definitely hang with Monks... PLUS they serve brunch on Sunday! Frites, homemade biscuits, poached eggs, bernaise sauce (!), and fried prosciutto instead of bacon.

4 out of 5

Where's the bacon you might ask?....

Bacon's in the vodka!!!
$3 Bloody Mary's on Sundays.

*** Zot has recently altered their benny... another review coming soon!

Sabrina's Cafe (Fairmount)

Sabrina's Cafe - 1804 Callowhill Street

One of two Sabrina's reviews as their Eggs Benedict Florentine DOES taste different at each location. Sabrina's is usually packed, but the homie Raws and I were lucky enough to find some seats at the bar. After Luke explained to the waitress that I was an "Eggs Benedict Connoisseur" and my blood is actually 43% hollandaise sauce... it was time to get down on the Eggs Benedict Florentine. This is their bare bones benny, and I couldn't be more satisfied with it.... just wish it wasn't so damn crowded at this spot!

Side: minutes later, I finally scored a copy of the crazy rare Eugene Mcdaniels LP, Headless Heroes of the Apocalypse

A sip of the juice:

Royal Tavern

Royal Tavern - 937 E Passyunk Ave.

Juan and I ventured to south phil for the Royal Tavern's Eggs Blackstone. Poached eggs, biscuits, fried tomatoes, crumbled bacon, hollandaise sauce, and hash browns. I'm not really quite sure how to explain this, but this benny got better over time. I felt like something was off about the first biscuit, but the second one regained my faith in the Blackstone.

3.5 out of 5

Dos Segundos

Dos Segundos - 931 N. 2nd Street

Not your classic eggs benedict. Listed as "Huevos Dos Segundos", this is more of a mexican take on the eggs benedict. Sopes are substituted for english muffins, and I believe there were some refried beans in there as well. An interesting dish, but not something I would order regularly.

3.5 out of 5

N. 3rd

N. 3rd - 3rd and Brown

Your classic eggs benedict. Nothing spectacular upon first glance, but this turned out to be a decent benny. Hollandaise sauce was a little sweet for my taste (very similar to Sabrinas). They also have a salmon & tomato benny which I'll be getting into sometime in the near future.

3.5 out of 5


The Abbaye - 3rd and Fairmount

Regular Eggs Benedict... perfection in a benny. Homemade biscuits & the perfect amount of hollandaise sauce.

5 out of 5.

Juan's dish is pictured, so here's his review:

Always a great selection here. Biscuits, eggs and hollandaise are all superb. And look at those potatoes?! Crispy and delicious, best of the city thus far. My only side-note is that I prefer the classic canadian bacon as opposed to the regular bacon pictured here. Otherwise, no complaints. The Abbaye is our home-field of breakfast spots, if you will. You'll never once wait for a table (all of you suckers waiting out front of Honeys need to get a clue) and the home of Jorge, only the best server in the 215.

Im giving a 4.5 out of 5.

The Texas Benedict

"It takes a particular hunger to order the Texas benny..." - Jorge

Don't ever order this. Unless you enjoy feeling like complete crap. The infamous Texas Benedict. This is the second (and last) Texas Benny I've ever ordered from the Abbaye.

Homemade biscuits, gravy, bacon, poached eggs, and... fried chicken. Tastes GREAT, but not intended to be eaten by humans.

3 out of 5.

The Vegetable Benedict...

.. for those of you who think adding spinach and tomatoes somehow transforms the eggs bendict into a healthy meal.

In all seriousness, I dig this benny as much as the regular benny at the Abbaye. Nothing complicated about this one... ditch the bacon, add some veggies.

4 out of 5


Classic Diner

Classic Diner - Frazer, PA

Not in Philly so technically it's out of the running for the best eggs benny in the city. BUT, it is pretty damn good. Spinach Eggs Benny is pictured. Too much hollandaise sauce!

4.5 out of 5

Honey's Sit N' Eat

Honeys Sit N' Eat- 4th and Brown

Eggs benny served on toast!?
That's like serving PB&J on rye...

(get the f out of here with that bullshit)

Regardless of this mortal sin, I am giving the eggs benny at Honey's a 3.5 out of 5, mainly due to the perfect amount of hollandaise sauce, potato latke and friendly service.

The Eggs Benny Files....

...the truth is out there

A young man's quest to find the best eggs benedict in the city of Philadelphia. Some may say it's impossible, some may question my motives, some are just flat out haters and want all the bennys for themselves.
