In addition, a number of procedures, such as cochlear implantation, laparoscopic colectomy, laparoscopic hysterectomy, secondary hip replacement, and knee replacement, have become more frequent in the recent years. Hence, the overall increase in the number of surgeries performed has a strong impact on the anesthetic drug market, as these drugs are used in all surgical procedures to reduce pain during surgery.
