Stents, still a common clinical option in coronary ischemia, have migrated peripherally anatomically and far eastward geographically. Their use in peripheral applications is gaining speed, particularly outside western markets.
U.S. and Western European markets have longer history in the use of stents in peripheral arterial and venous stents, but Japan, India, and China have proven their capacity for demand in medtech.
Peripheral stents in global markets are the subject of the MedMarket Diligence, LLC, report (#V201), “Global Market Opportunities in Peripheral Arterial and Venous Stents, Forecast to 2020”.
The scope of market analysis of the MedMarket Diligence report #V201 is the universe of stenting systems intended for the management of occlusive disorders and other pathologies affecting peripheral arterial and venous vasculature. The cited 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.
