Major Medical Device Manufacturers See Treatment of Peripheral Vascular Diseases as Major Revenue Growth Generator

Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

Stenting and stent graft procedures are now transitioning into the gold standard form of treatment for combating peripheral vascular diseases (PVD). An underserved market with high rates of disability and morbidity, PVD represents a significant market opportunity for medical stent manufacturers. Since the industry requires specialized devices to address the vast intricacies of the peripheral vasculature, market participants have the prospect to utilize their versatile expertise in design and development. The stellar clinical success and titanic revenue streams generated by the coronary stent market have sparked significant interest in their sister devices.

Frost & Sullivan ( finds that U.S. Peripheral Stent and Stent Graft Market earned revenues of $ 855.8 million in 2005 and estimates this to reach $1,153 million in 2012

If you are interested in a virtual brochure, which provides manufacturers, end users, and other industry participants an overview of the latest analysis of the U.S. Peripheral Stent and Stent Graft Market, then send an e-mail to Melina Trevino, Corporate Communications, at with the following information: your full name, company name, title, telephone number, e-mail address, city, state, and country. We will send you the information via email upon receipt of the above information.

"As the debilitating consequences to untreated peripheral vascular diseases mounts, there will be an increased pressure for clinically superior preventative medical device technologies," notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Venkat Rajan

Increased awareness and reimbursement for screening procedures to identify at risk patients for peripheral vascular diseases, coupled with the evolution of advanced minimally invasive surgical procedures are poised to lead to significant growth in the number of peripheral stent and stent graft procedures.

Peripheral vascular diseases such as abdominal aortic aneurysms, and lower limb occlusions are slow developing and for the most part go unnoticed by patients. Abdominal aortic ruptures are known as the silent killer, since they occur with little to no pre warning and are for the most part fatal. Other peripheral occlusions are accompanied by pain and numbness, but are often dismissed by patients as the simple signs of aging. Due to the lack of awareness the patients who would most benefit from medical device therapy, often fail to receive timely treatment.

"Furthermore, for patient who are identified with a peripheral occlusion there are a number of whom are not qualified for a stent due to their anatomy and the size of the occlusion. Due to risk of stent migration, fracture rates, and endovascular leakage stent-grafts are only applicable to less then half of the potential patient population. Advancement in technology and refinement of procedures are necessary to expand device usage", says Rajan.

The development of next generation solutions that offer significant improvements over the current line of devices available on the market will serve a great deal in improving device usage. Improvements to device flexibility and durability, along with the capacity to address the immense anatomical range of occlusions are necessary for the industry to move forward.
