U.S. MARKETS FOR CARDIOVASCULAR AND CARDIOTHORACIC SURGERY DEVICES

395 Pages | 121 Exhibits | 1999 Analysis | Forecasts Through 2003

OVERVIEW:
The future holds strong growth for the overall cardiovascular surgery products market, however, as new technologies evolve, significant shifts in market share for several product segments are also expected. Cardiovascular surgery techniques, among the most invasive and costly therapeutic options available, are seeing increased competition from less-invasive transcatheter and endovascular alternatives.

Included in this report from Medtech Insight is an overview of cardiovascular disease management, as well as comprehensive analyses of products and technologies used in open-heart surgery and minimally-invasive cardiac surgery. Also covered are applications and market analyses of cardiac assist replacement technologies, prosthetic heart valves, prosthetic vascular grafts, and vascular and cardiac repair patches and fabrics. An essential tool for executives working in or looking to enter into the market, the report is filled with 24 profiles of leading device makers, 123 illuminating exhibits and hundreds of pages of expert analysis and insight.
