Atherosclerosis is a common cardiovascular disorder that occurs due to the deposition of fat and cholesterol on the walls of arteries, leading to formation of hard structures known as plaques. These structures tend to obstruct blood flow by blocking the arteries and in turn lead to many health problems like hypertension. Occurrence of atherosclerosis is more common with aging. With growing age, plaque accumulation results in narrowing and calcification of the arteries, followed by obstruction in blood flow. This condition results in starvation of tissues for blood and oxygen, causing tissue damage, which is the major cause of heart attacks and stroke.
The other reasons for hardening of arteries include regular consumption of high fat diet, lack of exercise, excess alcohol consumption, smoking habits and diabetes. These factors may lead to hardening of arteries even at a younger age. A thrombus is a blood clot formed on the inner lining of blood vessels, deep leg veins being the most common area of formation of these clots. The condition is known as thrombosis. Obstructed blood flow, excess weight, immobility for a long duration and long hospital stays are the major reasons for improper circulation of blood and formation of clots. These clots when break free can move easily from the bloodstream to the lungs, resulting in a condition known as pulmonary embolism.
There are many imaging techniques adopted for ensuring proper blood movement through arteries, namely, magnetic resonance arteriography (MRA) which is a special type of MRI scan, CT angiography and arteriograms or angiography. The need for plaque and thrombus management devices is high due to rise in the population diagnosed with these conditions, increased awareness and high acceptance of modern and emerging treatment options. This market can be segmented by device type and geography. Treatment devices can be categorized into thrombectomy devices, atherectomy devices, chronic total occlusion devices and embolic protection devices.
The major factors influencing the growth of this market are high incidences of coronary and peripheral heart diseases, technological innovations, continuous product modifications and increased levels of acceptance by physicians. Effectiveness and optimum reach of these devices may mask the growth of the market. Some of the major players in this market are Boston Scientific Corporation, Medtronic, Inc., Abbott Laboratories and Edwards Lifesciences Corporation.
