OVERVIEW:
France

France, with a population of more than 64 million, has one of the highest levels of healthcare spending in Europe. France represents the leader among the European Union (EU) countries of France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom in terms of healthcare spending as a percentage of gross domestic product (GDP), with approximately 11.2% of the country's GDP spent on healthcare in 2005.

In most EU member states, acceptance of innovative technologies, along with an aging population, patient demand for an improved quality of life, and surgical procedures receiving reimbursement code listing have been driving the trend away from traditional open and invasive surgical procedures toward minimally invasive and laparoscopic surgery. The surgical procedures covered by this report include cardiovascular/peripheral vascular surgery; neurosurgery; obstetric/gynecologic surgery; ophthalmic surgery; orthopedic/arthroscopic surgery; otorhinolaryngologic surgery; spine surgery; and urologic surgery as well as the general surgical areas of adrenalectomy and appendectomy, breast surgery, cholecystectomy, esophagogastric and gastroduodenal surgery, inguinal hernia repair, liver biopsy and tumor excision, and splenectomy.

This dynamic new report from Medtech Insight presents an overview of selected open and laparoscopic surgical procedures along with their procedure volumes forecasts for the EU country of France for the years 2008 through 2013. Other topics covered by this report include an overview of healthcare and regulatory policies, technological advancements in minimally invasive surgery, and trends in healthcare funding and reimbursement in France.

Germany

The number of people age 65 and older comprises 20% of Germany's population of more than 82 million; by the year 2018, it is estimated that 22% of the country's population will be age 65 and older. In most European Union (EU) member states, acceptance of innovative technologies, along with an aging population, patient demand for an improved quality of life, and surgical procedures receiving reimbursement code listing have been driving the trend away from traditional open and invasive surgical procedures toward minimally invasive and laparoscopic surgery.

Due to the increasing use of laparoscopic techniques, over the next five years, double-digit expansion is projected in a number of procedures including adrenalectomy, joint replacement, minimally invasive spinal fixation, prostate disease/disorder management, and total disc replacement.

The surgical procedures covered by this report include cardiovascular/peripheral vascular surgery; neurosurgery; obstetric/gynecologic surgery; ophthalmic surgery; orthopedic/arthroscopic surgery; otorhinolaryngologic surgery; spine surgery; and urologic surgery as well as the general surgical areas of adrenalectomy and appendectomy, breast surgery, cholecystectomy, esophagogastric and gastroduodenal surgery, inguinal hernia repair, liver biopsy and tumor excision, and splenectomy.

This new report from Medtech Insight includes the procedure volumes forecasts for open and laparoscopic surgery in the above-mentioned areas for the EU country of Germany for the years 2008 through 2013. Topics covered by this report include an overview of European healthcare and regulatory policies, technological advancements in minimally invasive surgery, and trends in healthcare funding and reimbursement in Germany

Italy

In 2008, the population of Italy reached approximately 58.1 million, with the number of people age 65 and older comprising 20.0% of the total population; this represented an increase of 16.0% over the number of people in this age group in 1998. By the year 2018, it is estimated that 22.6% of the population of Italy will be age 65 and older. According to the World Health Organization, approximately 8.9% of Italy's gross domestic product was spent on healthcare in 2005. The aging population, along with the acceptance of innovative technologies, patient demand for an improved quality of life, and reimbursement practices, has been driving the trend away from traditional open and invasive surgical procedures toward minimally invasive and laparoscopic surgery.

Due to the increasing use of laparoscopic techniques, over the next five years, double-digit expansion is projected in a number of procedures including adrenalectomy, coronary artery surgery, endometrial ablation, joint replacement, minimally invasive spinal fixation, peripheral vascular surgery, prostate disease/disorder management, and total disc replacement.

The surgical procedures covered by this report include cardiovascular/peripheral vascular surgery; neurosurgery; obstetric/gynecologic surgery; ophthalmic surgery; orthopedic/arthroscopic surgery; otorhinolaryngologic surgery; spine surgery; and urologic surgery as well as the general surgical areas of adrenalectomy and appendectomy, breast surgery, cholecystectomy, esophagogastric and gastroduodenal surgery, inguinal hernia repair, liver biopsy and tumor excision, and splenectomy.

Topics covered by this report include an overview of European healthcare and regulatory policies, technological advancements in minimally invasive surgery, and trends in healthcare funding and reimbursement in Italy.

Spain

In 2008, the population of Spain reached approximately 40.5 million, with the number of people age 65 and older comprising 17.9% of the total population; this represented an increase of 10.6% over the number of people in this age group in 1998. By the year 2018, it is estimated that 20.2% of the population of Spain will be age 65 and older. A combination of factors including the aging of the population in the region, the introduction of innovative technologies, patient demand for improved quality of life, and evolving reimbursement practices are driving the trend away from traditional open and invasive surgical procedures toward minimally invasive and laparoscopic surgery.

Due to the increasing use of laparoscopic techniques, over the next five years, double-digit expansion is projected in a number of procedures including adrenalectomy, cardiac device implantation, coronary artery surgery, endometrial ablation, minimally invasive spinal fixation, peripheral vascular surgery, prostate disease/disorder management, and total disc replacement.

The surgical procedures covered by this report include cardiovascular/peripheral vascular surgery; neurosurgery; obstetric/gynecologic surgery; ophthalmic surgery; orthopedic/arthroscopic surgery; otorhinolaryngologic surgery; spine surgery; and urologic surgery as well as the general surgical areas of adrenalectomy and appendectomy, breast surgery, cholecystectomy, esophagogastric and gastroduodenal surgery, inguinal hernia repair, liver biopsy and tumor excision, and splenectomy.

United Kingdom

In 2008, the population of the United Kingdom (U.K.) reached approximately 60.9 million, with the number of people age 65 and older comprising 16.0% of the total population; this represented an increase of 5.2% over the number of people in this age group in 1998. By the year 2018, it is estimated that 18.5% of the population of the U.K. will be age 65 and older. The latest statistics from the World Health Organization indicate that total healthcare expenditures in the U.K. were equivalent to 8.2% of the nation's gross domestic product in 2005; public healthcare expenditures represented 87.1% of total healthcare expenditures in that year.

Due to the increasing use of laparoscopic techniques, over the next five years, double-digit expansion is projected in a number of procedures performed in the U.K. including adrenalectomy, coronary artery surgery, liver biopsy and tumor excision, minimally invasive spinal fixation, and total disc replacement.

The surgical procedures covered by this report include cardiovascular/peripheral vascular surgery; neurosurgery; obstetric/gynecologic surgery; ophthalmic surgery; orthopedic/arthroscopic surgery; otorhinolaryngologic surgery; spine surgery; and urologic surgery as well as the general surgical areas of adrenalectomy and appendectomy, breast surgery, cholecystectomy, esophagogastric and gastroduodenal surgery, inguinal hernia repair, liver biopsy and tumor excision, and splenectomy.
