DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Japan Market Report for Coronary Balloon Catheters 2017 - MedCore" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
Stents are deployed in a majority of cases, and PTCA balloons are used as an auxiliary device in order to expand contracted segments of lumen, place a stent or enlarge difficult occlusions. Because PTCA balloons are a necessary device for stent placement, sales of these balloon devices are highly correlated with stent sales.
PTCA balloon catheters can differ in size and material compliance as each case demands a different type of device. Depending on lesion extension and density, PTCA balloons require specific features, such as lesion-crossing capability, vector force or pressure. For this reason, PTCA balloons can have very advanced features, helping physicians to ensure that the lumen is clear and prepared for a stent deployment. For example, cutting balloons are devices with small blades that can be used for mechanically removing a coronary plaque, and high and low pressure balloons can aid in the opening of chronic occlusions.
Scoring balloons are similar to cutting balloons, but use an abrasive surface instead of blades to mechanically remove plaque from coronary arteries. Both cutting and scoring balloon catheters are technically also PTCA balloon catheters, but since they are more specialized and are significantly more expensive, for the purposes of this report, these devices will be grouped in a separate cutting balloons segment.
