NEW YORK, Dec. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Balloon occlusion devices will experience low single digit market growth over the forecast period. They will experience steady growth in units sold due to their many applications. As coils continue to increase in popularity over the next few years it will drive growth in balloon assisted coiling. This technique is still more popular than stent assisted coiling which may be due to the significantly lower ASP these devices command. The ASP of balloon occlusion devices has risen slightly over the past few years but is expected to remain steady over the forecast period.
Balloon occlusion devices have inflatable balloon devices at their distal end which can be expanded to occlude an artery. Balloon occlusion devices serve a number of purposes in neurovascular procedures. They can be used to assist detachable coil procedures, similarly to stents, however these devices are temporary. In these cases they are being used to aid in the treatment of aneurysms, AVMs or fistulas. When using detachable coils there is a risk of the coils blocking flow of the parent artery if they occlude the lumen of the artery as well. In order to minimize this risk, the balloon is inflated inside the parent artery prior to the insertion of coils so that they can be packed tighter inside the aneurysm without the danger of them protruding into the lumen. A study looking at this technique in anterior aneurysms found that there was a lower complication rate with balloon assisted coiling in comparison to coiling alone however other studies have found the opposite therefore further studies are required. In some cases, balloon catheters can also be used for the placement of stents. There are a number of factors that could impact the choice to use this device for aneurysm treatment such as the clinical situation, physician's preference, and the morphology of the aneurysm. It is worth noting that the ASP of these devices is considerably less than stents which could impact device preference as well.
