Cardiovascular Surgical Devices and Technologies Market - Segmentation and Forecast, 2012 – 2020

Heart diseases are a big threat to the human life. It’s mainly due to the hectic lifestyle that we lead today. The days are gone when aged people used to get heart attacks. Age definitely increases the risk of the disease, not necessarily though.

Merchant, Consultant Interventional Cardiologist, state-of-the-art Cath-Lab, Mumbai, is now credited as the first Interventional cardiologists to implant soluble stent in a 25 year old heart patient, who was suffering from major heart attacks. Dr. Merchant states that “the latest breakthrough in stent technology treats blockages in heart arteries by inserting a soluble stent, where the scaffold dissolved in 12 months and was replaced by normal structural and functional arterial walls. This increases the luminal size of the heart artery by 18%.

Heart rhythm disorders are the major cause for heart attacks. According to medical science, abnormal heart rhythm in a person is called ‘arrhythmias’. Cardiac Electrophysiology, a new invention in cardiology focuses on studying and correcting arrhythmias. This was stated in the state seminar by Lakeshore Hospital, Kochi. “Over two lakh people in Kerala suffer from various forms of abnormal heart rhythms, called ‘arrhythmias’ in medical terminology. Many of them can be permanently cured by a single ‘radio frequency ablation’ procedure which lasts about one hour, is virtually painless except for the numbing local anaesthetic injection, and involves a single day of hospital stay”, said Dr Bhima Shankar, Consultant Cardiac electrophysiologist, Lakeshore hospital.

The latest technological advancement is a ray of hope for the people suffering from heart diseases. These technologies probably help cure heart diseases without any surgery. report on “Cardiovascular Surgical devices and Technologies Market” provides in depth analysis of the global market. The drivers and restraints of the cardiovascular surgical devices and technologies market stated in the report would help the willing investors to make profitable business decisions.
