Cardiovascular procedure volume growth (interventional and surgical)

Cardiovascular surgical and interventional procedures are performed to treat conditions causing inadequate blood flow and supply of oxygen and nutrients to organs and tissues of the body. These conditions include the obstruction or deformation of arterial and venous pathways, distortion in the electrical conducting and pacing activity of the heart, and impaired pumping function of the heart muscle, or some combination of circulatory, cardiac rhythm, and myocardial disorders. Specifically, these procedures are:

  • Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery;
  • Coronary angioplasty and stenting;
  • Lower extremity arterial bypass surgery;
  • Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) with and without bare metal and drug-eluting stenting;
  • Peripheral drug-coated balloon angioplasty;
  • Peripheral atherectomy;
  • Surgical and endovascular aortic aneurysm repair;
  • Vena cava filter placement
  • Endovenous ablation;
  • Mechanical venous thrombectomy;
  • Venous angioplasty and stenting;
  • Carotid endarterectomy;
  • Carotid artery stenting;
  • Cerebral thrombectomy;
  • Cerebral aneurysm and AVM surgical clipping;
  • Cerebral aneurysm and AVM coiling & flow diversion;
  • Left Atrial Appendage closure;
  • Heart valve repair and replacement surgery;
  • Transcatheter valve repair and replacement;
  • Congenital heart defect repair;
  • Percutaneous and surgical placement of temporary and permanent mechanical cardiac support devices;
  • Pacemaker implantation;
  • Implantable cardioverter defibrillator placement;
  • Cardiac resynchronization therapy device placement;
  • Standard SVT & VT ablation; and
  • Transcatheter AFib ablation

For 2016 to 2022, the total worldwide volume of these cardiovascular procedures is forecast to expand on average by 3.7% per year to over 18.73 million corresponding surgeries and transcatheter interventions in the year 2022. The largest absolute gains can be expected in peripheral arterial interventions (thanks to explosive expansion in utilization of drug-coated balloons in all market geographies), followed by coronary revascularization (supported by continued strong growth in Chinese and Indian PCI utilization) and endovascular venous interventions (driven by grossly underserved patient caseloads within the same Chinese and Indian market geography).

Venous indications are also expected to register the fastest (5.1%) relative procedural growth, followed by peripheral revascularization (with 4.0% average annual advances) and aortic aneurysm repair (projected to show a 3.6% average annual expansion).

Geographically, Asian-Pacific (APAC) market geography accounts for slightly larger share of the global CVD procedure volume than the U.S. (29.5% vs 29,3% of the total), followed by the largest Western European states (with 23.9%) and ROW geographies (with 17.3%). Because of the faster growth in all covered categories of CVD procedures, the share of APAC can be expected to increase to 33.5% of the total by the year 2022, mostly at the expense of the U.S. and Western Europe.

However, in relative per capita terms, covered APAC territories (e.g., China and India) are continuing to lag far behind developed Western states in utilization rates of therapeutic CVD interventions with roughly 1.57 procedures per million of population performed in 2015 for APAC region versus about 13.4 and 12.3 CVD interventions done per million of population in the U.S. and largest Western European countries.

Global Cardiovascular Procedures report #C500 details the current and projected surgical and interventional therapeutic procedures commonly used in the management of acute and chronic conditions affecting myocardium and vascular system.

Interventional and Surgical Cardiovascular Procedure Volumes

Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are a variety of acute and chronic medical conditions associated with an inability of the cardiovascular system to sustain an adequate blood flow and supply of oxygen and nutrients to organs and tissues of the body. The CVD conditions may be manifested by the obstruction or deformation of arterial and venous pathways, distortion in the electrical conducting and pacing activity of the heart, and impaired pumping function of the heart muscle, or some combination of circulatory, cardiac rhythm, and myocardial disorders.

These diseases are treated via the following surgical and interventional procedures:

  • Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery;
  • Coronary angioplasty and stenting;
  • Lower extremity arterial bypass surgery;
  • Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) with and without bare metal and drug-eluting stenting;
  • Peripheral drug-coated balloon angioplasty;
  • Peripheral atherectomy;
  • Surgical and endovascular aortic aneurysm repair;
  • Vena cava filter placement
  • Endovenous ablation;
  • Mechanical venous thrombectomy;
  • Venous angioplasty and stenting;
  • Carotid endarterectomy;
  • Carotid artery stenting;
  • Cerebral thrombectomy;
  • Cerebral aneurysm and AVM surgical clipping;
  • Cerebral aneurysm and AVM coiling & flow diversion;
  • Left Atrial Appendage closure;
  • Heart valve repair and replacement surgery;
  • Transcatheter valve repair and replacement;
  • Congenital heart defect repair;
  • Percutaneous and surgical placement of temporary and permanent mechanical cardiac support devices;
  • Pacemaker implantation;
  • Implantable cardioverter defibrillator placement;
  • Cardiac resynchronization therapy device placement;
  • Standard SVT & VT ablation; and
  • Transcatheter AFib ablation

In 2016, the cumulative worldwide volume of these procedures is projected to approach 15.05 million surgical and transcatheter interventions. This will include:

  • roughly 4.73 million coronary revascularization procedures via CABG and PCI (or about 31.4% of the total),
  • close to 4 million percutaneous and surgical peripheral artery revascularization procedures (or 26.5% of the total);
  • about 2.12 million cardiac rhythm management procedures via implantable pulse generator placement and arrhythmia ablation (or 14.1% of the total);
  • over 1.65 million CVI, DVT, and PE targeting venous interventions (representing 11.0% of the total);
  • more than 992 thousand surgical and transcatheter heart defect repairs and valvular interventions (or 6.6% of the total);
  • close to 931 thousand acute stroke prophylaxis and treatment procedures (contributing 6.2% of the total);
  • over 374 thousand abdominal and thoracic aortic aneurysm endovascular and surgical repairs (or 2.5% of the total); and
  • almost 254 thousand placements of temporary and permanent mechanical cardiac support devices in bridge to recovery, bridge to transplant, and destination therapy indications (accounting for about 1.7% of total procedure volume).

Below is illustrated the overall global growth for each of the major categories of procedures through 2022.

There is considerable variation in the growth of cardiovascular procedures globally, but most growth is coming out of Asia/Pacific. For example, within the area of venous interventions, the growth in the use of endovenous ablation for chronic venous insufficiency is markedly higher in Asia/Pacific than in other regions, though the U.S. will remain the largest volume of these procedures.

Peripheral Stenting Procedures and Markets

First introduced about two decades ago as a bailout technique for suboptimal or failed iliac angioplasty, peripheral vascular stenting gradually emerged as a valuable and versatile tool for a variety of primary and adjuvant applications outside the domain of coronary and cerebral vasculature.  Today, peripheral vascular stenting techniques are commonly employed in the management of the most prevalent occlusive circulatory disorders and other pathologies affecting the abdominal and thoracic aortic tree and lower extremity arterial bed. Stents are also increasingly used in the management of the debilitating conditions like venous outflow obstruction associated with deep venous thrombosis and chronic venous insufficiency.

Notwithstanding a relative maturity of the core technology platforms and somewhat problematic opportunities for conversion to value-adding peripheral drug-eluting systems, peripheral vascular stenting appears to have a significant room for qualitative and quantitative growth both in established and emerging peripheral indications.

Peripheral Stenting Worldwide: Arterial, Venous, BMS, DES, AAA, TAA

First introduced about two decades ago as a bailout technique for suboptimal or failed iliac angioplasty, peripheral vascular stenting gradually emerged as a valuable and versatile tool for a variety of primary and adjuvant applications outside the domain of coronary and cerebral vasculature.  Today, peripheral vascular stenting techniques are commonly employed in the management of the most prevalent occlusive circulatory disorders and other pathologies affecting the abdominal and thoracic aortic tree and lower extremity arterial bed. Stents are also increasingly used in the management of the debilitating conditions like venous outflow obstruction associated with deep venous thrombosis and chronic venous insufficiency.

Notwithstanding a relative maturity of the core technology platforms and somewhat problematic opportunities for conversion to value-adding peripheral drug-eluting systems, peripheral vascular stenting appears to have a significant room for qualitative and quantitative growth both in established and emerging peripheral indications.

A panoply of stenting systems are available for the management of occlusive disorders and other pathologies affecting peripheral arterial and venous vasculature. Systems include lower extremity bare metal and drug-eluting stents for treatment of symptomatic PAD and critical limb ischemia resulting from iliac, femoropopliteal and infrapopliteal occlusive disease; stent-grafting devices used in endovascular repair of abdominal and thoracic aortic aneurysms; as well as a subset of indication-specific and multipurpose peripheral stents used in recanalization of iliofemoral and iliocaval occlusions resulting in CVI.

In 2015, these peripheral stenting systems were employed in approximately 1.565 million revascularization procedures worldwide, of which the lower extremity arterial stenting accounted for almost 1.252 million interventions (or 80.9%), followed by AAA and TAA endovascular repairs with 162.4 thousand interventions (or 10.5%) and peripheral venous stenting used in an estimated 132.6 thousand patients (or 8.6% of the total).

The U.S. clinical practices performed almost 528 thousand covered peripheral arterial and venous procedures (or 34.1% of the worldwide total), followed by the largest Western European states with over 511 thousand interventions (or 33.1%), major Asian-Pacific states with close to 377 thousand interventions (or 24.4%), and the rest-of-the-world with about 131 thousand peripheral stent-based interventions (or 8.4%).

Cardiovascular Surgical and Interventional Procedures Worldwide, 2015-2022

In 2016, the cumulative worldwide volume of the the following CVD procedures is projected to approach 15.05 million surgical and transcatheter interventions:

  • roughly 4.73 million coronary revascularization procedures via CABG and PCI (or about 31.4% of the total),
  • close to 4 million percutaneous and surgical peripheral artery revascularization procedures (or 26.5% of the total);

Cerebral thrombectomy procedures worldwide

In 2014, approximately 33.7 thousand cerebral thrombectomy procedures were performed worldwide, of which United States and largest European states accounted for roughly 46% and 37%, largest Asian states contributed 10.4% and the rest of the world added remaining 6.5%.

The 2014 global cerebral thrombectomy system sales were estimated at approximately $166 million, of which the United States accounted for about $79.1 million (or ~47.7%), followed by the largest Western European states with $59.4 million (or 35.8%), major Asian states with $17 million (or 10.2%) and the rest-of-the-world with $10.5 million (or 6.3% of the total).

In the view of the industry insiders and practicing neurointerventional radiologists, relatively modest volume of life-saving cerebral thrombectomy procedures and corresponding product sales appear to reflect still insufficient body of favorable clinical data and inhibiting impact of the published dubious findings from the major IMS-III study.

The latter compared first-generation cerebral thrombectomy techniques with standard medical (and tPA) therapy and asserted that endovascular clot retrieval interventions did not result in visible improvement in patient outcomes. The cited conclusions clearly contradict results of numerous randomized trials with available second-generation cerebral revascularization systems, which appear to documented superiority of the latter system in management of acute ischemic stroke caseloads.

It is generally assumed that the situation with end-user adoption is likely to improve dramatically in two-three years from now, when results of the ongoing major U.S. and international trials with novel cerebral thrombectomy devices become available.

Based on these assumptions, the cumulative worldwide volume of cerebral thrombectomy procedures is projected to experience accelerated growth to the end of the forecast period resulting in 10.8% overall average annual expansion of corresponding interventions in the forthcoming five years to an estimated 56.2 thousand total procedures worldwide in 2019.

screen-shot-2016-10-17-at-7-14-32-am
From: “Emerging Global Market for Neurointerventional Technologies in Stroke, 2014-2019”, Report #C310.

The worldwide market for cerebral clot retrieval systems is forecast to grow at a slightly slower pace expanding on average 10.1% per annum to about $268.4 million in the year 2019. Price pressure will keep sales growth lower than procedure volume gains.

The largest absolute dollar gains can be expected in the U.S. market (which is projected to add $55.9 million in corresponding device revenues), followed by the West European marketplace (+ $30.6 million), major Asian state business (+ $11.2 million) and the rest-of-the-world (+ $4.7 million).

Requirements for acceptance of new peripheral stents in clinical practice

Stents are implantable devices designed as endoluminal scaffolds to maintain patency following recanalization of occluded or structurally compromised vascular (and non-vascular) circulatory conduits that enable energy supply and metabolic exchange in various organs and tissues of the human body. Palliative stenting has been routinely used for decades in the management of acute and chronic obstructions of gastro-intestinal, pulmonary and urinary tracts secondary to benign or malignant neoplasms or other cite-specific or systemic pathologies. However, a real explosion in utilization of stents was triggered in the early 1990s by the advent of vascular stenting devices, which allowed radically improved clinical outcomes of balloon angioplasty and supported its emergence as the first choice treatment modality for occlusive peripheral and coronary artery disease (PAD and CAD). By the end of 2014, more than three quarters of patients with acute and chronic arterial occlusions warranting intervention were referred for angioplasty-based therapy, which entailed placement of stenting devices in over 80% of commonly performed peripheral revascularization procedures.

To be accepted in clinical practices, stenting implants should satisfy a number of general and application-specific requirements relating to device biocompatibility, functional performance, and end-user and patient friendliness which are summarized in the exhibit below. In very general terms, stenting device biocompatibility refers to minimization of hostile immune responses (and other local and systemic adverse reactions) that are inevitably triggered by a direct contact of any implantable medical device with living tissues and bodily fluids in situ. For understandable reasons, biocompatibility depends primarily on the implant surface material, including such characteristics as chemical inertness and stability, corrosion resistance, etc. The stenting device biocompatibility can also be effected somewhat by the duration of its presence in situ and specifics of the deployment site and occlusion causing pathology.

The stent’s functional performance (or ability to maintain adequate scaffolding support and lumen patency for a desired period of time) represents a complex function of the device design/architecture and the relative static and dynamic strength of its base material. The chosen stenting device’s architecture and structural material predetermine it radial strength, longitudinal flexibility, conformability and foreshortening, as well as relative lesion coverage, fatigue and kinking resistance, circulatory flow obstruction, etc.

Finally, the stent’s end-user and patient friendliness are predicated both by the design concept of the delivery system and stenting device and refers to procedural convenience, predictability, safety, morbidity, availability of bail-out options, etc. The commonly acknowledged stenting system characteristics relating to the end-user/patient friendliness include low profile, flexibility, traceability, high radiopacity, compatibility with established transcatheter tools and techniques, ease of use and short learning curve, simplicity of retrieval in case of procedural failure, possibility of emergent /elective conversion to surgery, etc.

Global and Regional Cardiovascular Surgical and Interventional Procedures Forecast; Reveals Cardio Tech Outlook

With few exceptions, cardiovascular technologies no longer command big premiums (like many other medtech sectors) and mature Western markets for cardio devices have already captured most of the readily available patient caseloads. The lines between different markets (device, drugs, materials) are blurring, while surgical specialists seek to slow the caseload migration to interventionalists. The epicenter of growth in utilization of advanced cardiovascular technologies and techniques is gradually shifting to emerging Asia-Pacific markets away from the increasingly stagnant U.S. and Western European marketplace. The latter reflects the sheer size of underserved patient caseloads, availability of funding, and increasing reliance on economical domestically reproduced sophisticated endovascular devices.

“In order to be successful, manufacturers, investors, healthcare providers, advisors, and others in cardiac surgery and endovascular fields need to understand the real dynamics and asymmetrical development pattern of different cardiovascular device markets in different geographies,” says Patrick Driscoll of MedMarket Diligence. “At the root of understanding the market is accurately and realistically gauging the current and future demand for, and likely usage of, specific medical and surgical technologies and procedures.”

MedMarket Diligence has published a comprehensive resource available to manufacturers, investors, and others with interest in cardiovascular technologies. “Global Dynamics of Surgical and Interventional Cardiovascular Procedures, 2015-2022,” is a worldwide competitive analysis and forecast of existing and emerging cardiovascular technologies and procedures coupled with identification and assessment of the most promising and sizable device markets.

The report covers surgical and interventional therapeutic procedures commonly used in the management of acute and chronic conditions affecting the myocardium and vascular system. The latter include ischemic heart disease (and its life threatening manifestations like AMI, cardiogenic shock, etc.); heart failure; structural heart disorders (valvular abnormalities and congenital heart defects); peripheral artery disease (and limb and life threatening critical limb ischemia); aortic disorders (AAA, TAA and aortic dissections); acute and chronic venous conditions (such as deep venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolism and chronic venous insufficiency); neurovascular pathologies associated with high risk of hemorrhagic and ischemic stroke (such as cerebral aneurysms and AVMs, and high-grade carotid/intracranial stenosis); and cardiac rhythm disorders (requiring correction with implantable pulse generators/IPG or arrhythmia ablation).

The report offers epidemiology and mortality data for the major cardiovascular conditions along with current assessment and projected procedural dynamics (2015 to 2022) for primary market geographies (e.g., United States, Largest Western European Countries, and Major Asian States) as well as the rest of the world.

Eight Sectors of Cardiovascular Surgery Reveal Growth, Volume to 2022

The global market for cardiovascular devices is in the billions. Its size and association with life-saving clinical utility ensures that investors will support a surprisingly strong range of innovations in an otherwise very well-established medtech market. There is stable growth in many cardio technologies that have attained “gold standard”; aggressive growth in China, India, and Japan; and select new cardio technologies expected to rapidly seize caseload. 

Report #C500, excerpted below, provides forecasts and analysis of cardiovascular surgical and interventional procedures to illustrate the volume and growth by clinical area, caseload trend, practice trend, technology introduction or regional dynamic impact.


During the forecast period 2016 to 2022, the total worldwide volume of cardiovascular surgical and interventional procedures, tracked by MedMarket Diligence, is forecast to expand on average by 3.7% per annum to over 18.73 million corresponding surgeries and transcatheter interventions in the year 2022. The largest absolute gains can be expected in peripheral arterial interventions (thanks to explosive expansion in utilization of drug-coated balloons in all market geographies), followed by coronary revascularization (supported by continued strong growth in Chinese and Indian PCI utilization) and endovascular venous interventions (driven by grossly underserved patient caseloads within the same Chinese and Indian market geography).

The latter (venous) indications are also expected to register the fastest (5.1%) relative procedural growth, followed by peripheral revascularization (with 4.0% average annual advances) and aortic aneurysm repair (projected to show a 3.6% average annual expansion).

Geographically, Asian-Pacific (APAC) market geography accounts for slightly larger share of the global CVD procedure volume than the U.S. (29.5% vs 29,3% of the total), followed by the largest Western European states (with 23.9%) and ROW geographies (with 17.3%). Because of the faster growth in all covered categories of CVD procedures, the share of APAC can be expected to increase to 33.5% of the total by the year 2022, mostly at the expense of the U.S. and Western Europe.

However, in relative per capita terms, covered APAC territories (e.g., China and India) are continuing to lag far behind developed Western states in utilization rates of therapeutic CVD interventions with roughly 1.57 procedures per million of population performed in 2015 for APAC region versus about 13.4 and 12.3 CVD interventions done per million of population in the U.S. and largest Western European countries.
