The global transcatheter aortic heart valve opportunity continues to be strong and growing. Edwards reported 2012 sales of $552 and predicts it will manage to generate $780 million globally in 2013, including $420 million in the US alone. Our analysts forecast a $2.2 billion global market by 2018.
Interventional cardiologists are exceptionally enthusiastic about the potential of transcatheter aortic valve replacement, and with good reason. The preliminary data on this new treatment modality show that the procedure provides a minimally invasive alternative to cardiac valve surgery.
The average age for patients diagnosed with severe aortic stenosis is 70 years. Traditional valve replacement is considered a high risk surgery for most of these elderly patients.
Furthermore, a significant percentage of patients diagnosed with moderate or severe valve disease have been denied traditional valve surgery, due to its high operative mortality rate.
Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has been established as an alternative to surgical aortic valve replacement in inoperable and high-risk patients with severe, symptomatic aortic stenosis.
Next-generation transcatheter aortic valves will facilitate the procedure, improve outcome and usability and address remaining TAVI-specific drawbacks such as periprosthetic aortic regurgitation.
The TransCatheter Aortic Valves Market report is targeted at senior executives in the medical device industry who wish to get up-to-date with this multi-billion dollar fast growing market. The report offers a consensus-based linear forecast to to 2018.
