Volvulus is the condition of obstruction due to the twisting or knotting of the gastrointestinal tract. Twisting or knotting of the gastrointestinal tract may block the intestinal tract and obstruct blood flow. It can lead to the death of the involved segments of the gastrointestinal tract, intestinal perforation, peritonitis, and intestinal obstruction. Volvulus is most commonly caused due to a birth defect known as malrotation, which specifically occurs during fetal development. It may also occur in elderly people with constipation. The symptoms of volvulus include intermittent pain in the abdomen, bloody stool, vomiting, nausea, bloating or constipation. An emergency surgery is necessary to repair volvulus and remove possible dead tissues in the gastrointestinal tract. Volvulus occurs in approximately 2 individuals per 100,000, worldwide. There are four types of volvulus: gastric volvulus, midgut volvulus, cecal volvulus, and sigmoidal volvulus. Out of these, the incidence of cecal volumes is increasing every year, whereas, the incidence of sigmoidal volvulus remains stable. It has been observed that, the requirement of volvulus treatment and incidence of volvulus is higher in people who are institutionalized or who live in nursing homes, due to the regular intake of psychotropic drugs which interfere with colonic motility.

Volvulus Treatment Market: Drivers and Restraints
The growing prevalence and recurrence of volvulus is expected to be a major factor driving the growth of the volvulus treatment market over the forecast period. According to the World Journal of Gastrointestinal Pharmacology and Therapeutics, the prevalence of volvulus has increased considerably in the last two decades, thus, increasing the demand for volvulus treatment. Changes is lifestyle and eating habits are attributed to the growing prevalence of volvulus. The launch, development, and addition of new products for volvulus treatment is the other factors contributing to the growth of the global volvulus treatment market. For instance, rectal tubes, barium enema, and rigid and flexible endoscopy have been vastly integrated and adopted by clinicians as treatment methods. Colonoscopy is effective in more than 70% of the patients, as it allows the evaluation of colonic mucosa indicating the presence or absence of the signs of ischemia.
