Drug-Coated Balloons Fuel Multibillion-Dollar Hopes

With a total market potential estimated in the multibillion-dollar range, the drug-coated balloon opportunity is attracting a growing list of competitors, including several leading multinational cardiovascular device companies that have entered the space via recent acquisitions. DCBs still need to prove their worth in large, long-term clinical trials, but the ultimate proving point for DCBs could center on cost: if they can offer an effective treatment option that is significantly less expensive than existing devices, DCBs may provide a compelling economic argument.

Peripheral Vascular Disease Grows at Double-Digit Rates, Waits for Solutions

New technologies are wanted for peripheral artery disease, which affects 12 to 14 million people in the US, two to three million of them serious enough to warrant intervention, according to "US Markets for Interventional Peripheral Vascular Disease Management Products and Technologies," a report recently issued by Windhover-Elsevier. In addition to peripheral arterial disease, approximately eight million people in the US suffer from chronic venous insufficiency, of whom more than three million develop venous ulcers. Aortic aneurysms affect another two million people in the US, and the prevalence is increasing due to the increasing number of the elderly. But one of the largest serious problems in peripheral vascular disease that has few solutions is deep vein thrombosis (DVT). In the US approximately 25 million suffer from this condition and two million more are diagnosed each year. DVT brings the danger of pulmonary embolism and death. These and other categories in peripheral vascular disease are forecast to grow by double-digit rates, including mechanical atherectomy systems, chronic total occlusion crossing systems, and endovascular cryotherapy systems.
