A lower limb arterial stent is a metal scaffold permanently implanted in an artery to keep the artery open treat patients suffering from Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD). Peripheral artery disease is a progressive disease caused by the accumulation of plaques in the arterial system. Peripheral artery disease affects three major segments – aortic-iliac, femoropopliteal and infra-popliteal arteries. According to National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), the prevalence of PAD is 14.5% among individuals of 70 years or above. It was reported that about 50% of all peripheral artery disease cases are caused by smoking. Atherosclerosis is a severe disease that affects lower limb blood vessels and other arteries of the body. It is generally caused due to the deposition of fat and cholesterol within the blood vessel, which leads to the thickening of blood vessel wall. It was found that the risk of heart diseases is six times higher in patients with severe peripheral artery disease. The thickened blood vessel wall becomes narrow, which is responsible for blockage. To remove this blockage from the artery, a thin guide wire called stent is inserted through a catheter into the blocked arteries. The metal stent is often placed within the artery to keep the artery from narrowing.
Lower Limb Arterial Stents Market: Drivers and Restraints
The rising in incidence rate of peripheral artery disease is the primary factor driving the growth of the lower limb arterial stents market. Rapid technological advancement and the wide acceptance of this treatment among patients are also expected to fuel the growth of the lower limb arterial stents market over the forecast period. Moreover, the change in lifestyle pattern is also responsible for the robust growth of the lower limb arterial stents market. On the other hand, various alternative treatment options and the high cost of surgery degrade the growth of the lower limb arterial stents market. Also, the lack of awareness among patients also hinders the growth of lower limb arterial stents market.
