Naperville, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/03/2013 -- Reportstack, provider of premium market research reports announces the addition of MediPoint: Peripheral Vascular Stents for the Lower Extremity - Global Analysis and Market Forecasts market report to its offering
Endovascular therapies such as stenting have been widely adopted to treat peripheral artery disease in the lower extremity. Peripheral vascular stents including bare metal, drug-eluting, covered and bioabsorbable stents are associated with improved clinical outcomes compared to balloon angioplasty alone.
The global peripheral vascular stent (PVS) market is steadily growing in the 10 countries covered in the report, including the US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Japan, Brazil, China and India.
Through The publisher’s analysis, it is evident that currently the peripheral vascular stent market for the lower extremity is saturated with bare metal stents, followed by covered stents. However, as clinical data and appropriate reimbursement and costs are established, adoption of innovative stent technologies such as drug-eluting stents and bioabsorbable stents will increase in the future.
By the end of the forecast period, the competitive landscape will experience significant change due to the launch of bioabsorbable stents in the market, the expansion of approved indications to include infrapopliteal artery lesions and the entry of new companies such as 480 Biomedical.
