DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/9cqxw2/global) has announced the addition of the "Global Ventricular Assist Devices (VAD) Market 2015-2019" report to their offering.
The Global Ventricular Assist Devices market to grow at a CAGR of 12.04% over the period 2014-2019
Heart failure is a medical condition wherein the heart loses its ability to pump enough blood to circulate throughout the body. In such a condition, a patient can survive by having heart transplantation with a healthy heart. A VAD is a medical device that is used to support the patient with either acute or chronic cardiac functional deterioration. It is a mechanical pump implanted in a patient affected by heart failure to help the heart's weakened ventricle to pump blood into the aorta or throughout the body.
One of the major trends emerging in this market is the increase in use of VADs for bridge to transplant therapy. Certain approved VADs for BTT therapy are available in the market including HeartMate II LVAS, Thoratec PVAD, and LVAD by Thoratec.
According to the report, one of the major factors driving the market growth is the shortage of donor hearts for transplantation. Therefore, to increase their survival rate, patients are implanted with VADs.
Further, the report states that one of the main challenges in the market is the presence of alternative treatments to reduce acute heart failure symptoms or improve cardiac output. TAHs, IABPs, and pacemakers are devices that can substitute for VADs.
