The development of various new minimally invasive surgeries has prompted patients suffering from pericarditis to opt for diagnosis & treatment. Robot-assisted surgeries have also revolutionized the pericarditis treatment space by facilitating high level of accuracy and efficacy. Besides, increasing availability of hassle-free reimbursement on surgeries has led to an increase in the volume of pericarditis surgeries, which has fueled the growth of the pericarditis market.

Conversely, pericarditis treatment involves the insertion of catheters, which is aligned with the risk of infections and is a major impediment to market growth. Moreover, anti-inflammatory drugs are used continuously in the treatment of pericarditis, which can result in side-effects. Such factors are likely to impede the growth of the global pericarditis market.
