TORONTO, Sept. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- According to Millennium Research Group (MRG), the global authority on medical technology market intelligence, the European market for clot management devices will see moderate growth through 2022. Although a number of segments are mature, fast-growing segments such as endovascular treatments for acute ischemic stroke (AIS) and venous thromboembolism (VTE) will support overall revenue expansion.
The neurovascular embolectomy device segment will undergo robust growth through 2022. Compared to the current standard of care, intravenous tissue plasminogen activator (IV t-PA), neuroembolectomy devices offer a longer therapeutic window after symptom onset. This is critical because AIS patients often reach the hospital beyond the time in which IV t-PA is effective. In addition, IV t-PA is ineffective for treating large clot burdens, whereas neurovascular embolectomy is fast and effective in the recanalization of large-vessel occlusions, offering an alternative treatment for these cases.
Similarly, although VTE is typically treated with anticoagulants, endovascular clot management treatment volumes for this indication will increase steadily as clinical data emerges to support the pharmacomechanical treatment of this condition, bolstering physician confidence. Additionally, there has been an increasing trend toward the combined use of percutaneous thrombectomy and catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT), particularly for the treatment of acute cases of VTE.
"When used with CDT, thrombectomy may actually offer safety advantages compared to anticoagulants," said MRG Analyst Tony Su. "This treatment can reduce drug doses or eliminate the need for them altogether, resulting in fewer bleeding complications than with medical management. This advantage will increase adoption of percutaneous thrombectomy and CDT in the VTE indication, boosting procedure volumes and revenues."
