Bougie is a thin cylindrical rod inserted into or through a body passageway to diagnose or treat a condition. It is made up of rubber, plastic, or metal depending on the use. Urethral bougies are usually used to treat urethral strictures i.e., narrowing of urethra resulting in difficulties in urine flow. This is carried out by passing a thin rod into urethra resulting in widening of urethral passage. In some cases, dilation is also required prior to the passage of large instruments such as resectoscope through the urethra. Urethral stricture is more common in men than women. Increase in the geriatric population, rise in incidence of chronic kidney diseases, surge in cases of urinary tract infections & urinary stones, and increase in demand for cost-effective procedures for dilation propel the global urethral bougies market. Additionally, high cost of surgical procedures, risk of reoccurrence, infections associated with surgeries, and ease to perform dilation at home are likely to drive the market during the forecast period. Expert dilation is becoming a lost art in several technologically developed countries. This can act as a major restraint of the global urethral bougies market. Using bougies with pressure gauge, electroscopic arrangement, and stopcock is the latest trend in the global market.
