In the recent decades the number of myocardial revascularization procedures, incorporating coronary angioplasty, in chronic stable angina (CSA) patients has grown significantly. Irrespective of various innovations in coronary angioplasty techniques that require coronary stent grafts, recurrent angina post coronary angioplasty has become a frequent medical issue that many cardiologists in clinical practice have to face. The plight has turned so worse that over 30% of patients with prior revascularization still report issues associated with angina in follow-up time periods, which could increase the demand for cardiac medical treatments, which usually include coronary stent grafts. Furthermore, the growing number of ambulatory surgical centers, hospitals, medical facilities, and emergency rooms, etc. continue to increase sale prospects of coronary stent grafts, with each one of them needing the medical equipment required to perform treatment of severe perforation or rupture of coronary arteries and aneurysm of coronary arteries, etc.
A recent vital interventional cardiology prediction made by American College of Cardiology (ACC) and Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) meetings indicates eventual monopoly of bioresorbable stents in the forthcoming years, which is expected to bring tremendous changes in the manufacturing of coronary stent grafts market, prompting the makers of coronary stent grafts to explore enhanced bioreasorable solution to be able to meet the changing needs of the medical practices.
Furthermore, coronary stent grafts market may remain highly influenced by the diverse rapidly-changing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) regulations, for example, the existing US guidelines don’t endorse elective PCI in facilities in the absence of on-site surgical back-up, which could impact coronary stent grafts market.
Stents are small expandable tubes used to treat narrowed or weakened arteries in the body. In patients with coronary artery disease (CAD), coronary stents are used to open narrowed arteries and also help in reducing symptoms, such as chest pain (angina), as well as in the treatment of heart attack. Coronary stent grafts are used for transluminal implantation in coronary arteries or aorto-coronary bypass grafts for the treatment of acute perforation or rupture of coronary arteries as well as aneurysm of coronary arteries or coronary bypass-vein graft. Coronary stents are implanted in narrowed coronary arteries during a procedure called the percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or angioplasty.
Coronary stent grafts are of various types, such as Bio-Vascular Scaffold (BVS), Bio-engineered Stent, Drug Eluting Stents (DES), Bare metal stents and Dual Therapy Stent (DTS). These different types of stents are used for various different purposes. The Bio-Vascular Scaffold (BVS) is a drug eluting stent on a dissolvable type of scaffold platform which can be absorbed by the body over time. A Bio-engineered Stent (antibody-coated stent), on the other hand, helps in speed up the cell lining of the artery (endothelialization), thereby promoting natural healing. The Drug Eluting Stents (DES) are coated with medication that is released (eluted) to help prevent the growth of scar tissue in the artery lining. This type of stent helps the artery to remain smooth and open, thereby ensuring good blood flow and reducing the chances of artery re-narrowing or restenosis. Bare metal stents are usually made from stainless steel and have no special coating.
Dual Therapy Stent (DTS) is the latest type of coronary stent. It is a first-of-its-kind stent therapy that reduces any likelihood of the re-narrowing of the artery as well as helps in the healing of the artery. It combines the benefit of DES with the benefits of bio-engineered stents and is the only stent to contain a drug with an active healing technology. These types of stents are usually made of metal mesh and are commonly called heart stents or cardiac or coronary stents.
Coronary Stent Grafts Market: Drivers and Restraints
Growing cases of coronary angioplasty (a treatment to widen narrowed sections of coronary arteries) is one of the key factors driving the demand for coronary stent grafts in hospitals, surgical centers and emergency rooms. The growth in the number of patients suffering from angina is leading to growth in demand for coronary angioplasty, which is driving the coronary stent graft market. Besides, due to less surgery time and low cost of surgery as compared to bypass surgery, coronary angioplasty is highly favored. The average cost of the Minimally Invasive Coronary Bypass Surgery in India is approximately $7000 whereas the cost of angioplasty in India for a single stent is around $ 2,745. However, the side effects associated with coronary angioplasty (PCI) might hamper its adoption rate. It has been observed that PCI itself tends to injure the artery walls and increases the risk of secondary obstruction. In fact, 21% of the PCI group required another stent within six months while 60% of the treated vessels required re-stenting. Thus, this factor is expected to restrict the growth of the coronary stent grafts market during the forecast period.
