DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "US Market Report for Mechanical Thrombectomy Devices 2017 - MedCore" report to their offering.
There will be significant market growth in the mechanical thrombectomy market over the forecast period, driven by growth in unit sales as mechanical thrombectomy is adopted as standard of care for acute ischemic stroke patients. This market includes stent retrievers and suction thrombectomy catheters.
The majority of the time a combination of the two categories is used but there a number of factors that can impact treatment decisions, one key factor being physician preference. Studies found new stent retriever devices are superior to first generation aspiration devices but there have been fewer studies comparing the second generation of both categories.
Prior to 2012 it was mainly aspiration used and then with the entrance of stent retrievers, they became the primary treatment. In the last year or so, combination therapy has become the most common. Both categories of devices have a role as certain devices appear to more successful based on the anatomy, clot morphology and clot locations.
Additional clinical trials will influence whether the devices continue to be used in conjunction or whether one category will cannibalize shares form the other.
