Research and Markets: 2012 Research Report on the European Markets for Soft Tissue Repair (Executive Summary)


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "European Markets for Soft Tissue Repair (Executive Summary)" report to their offering.

Although breast repair may be necessary because of trauma and congenital defects, a driving force for repair procedures is breast cancer. The incidence of new cancers in Europe is increasing at a minimal pace as of 2011, in part due to a maturation of screening protocols and public awareness. Included in this report is a summary of the procedures performed in Germany,France,U.K.,Italy,Spain, the Netherlands,Sweden,Denmark, Austria and Switzerland.

Rates of breast reconstruction in Europe are low relative to the potential number of women who could benefit from such surgeries. In general, women who opt for reconstruction surgery tend to be younger, well educated, possess higher levels of employment, and are more sexually active than those who chose to live without reconstruction after cancer treatment. Utilization is driven by the public healthcare systems of Europe and, as studied in the Nordic countries such as Sweden, in countries where public funding is available, the proportion of patients who are married is also higher.

Scope: This report pertains to a forecast period of 10 years (2008 - 2018) for Germany, France, U.K., Italy, Spain, Benelux, Scandinavia, Austria, Switzerland, Portugal

Main Segments Included:

- Breast Tissue Repair

- Breast Reconstruction
