In industrialized countries, the reprocessing and reuse of medical devices for a range of applications has raised serious concerns, and regulatory agencies are establishing measures to control syringe and needle reuse. Single-use medical devices (SUDs) are usually made of non-renewable petrochemicals and/or metals. Most, but not all, SUDs are presented as sterile products, with the requisite barrier packaging material. Since the devices are intended to be used only once, both they and their packaging contribute to the solid waste stream.

        A recent study published in  BMC Public Health  by Wang and Wu found that in China, the reprocessing and reuse of single-use medical devices in hospitals is extensive despite the practice being banned in the country.
