Atherectomy Devices:

On the basis of product, the Atherectomy Devices Market is categorized into directional, orbital, photo-ablative (laser), rotational atherectomy devices, and support devices. In 2017, the directional atherectomy devices segment accounted for the largest share of the market. It is also expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This can be attributed to clinical benefits offered (such as lack of barotrauma, less risk of neointimal hyperplasia, immediate change of bypass site, and availability of differently sized instruments to enable atherectomy in blood vessels) and ongoing technological advancements in the field of directional atherectomy.


Based on application, the market is categorized into peripheral vascular, cardiovascular, and neurovascular applications. The peripheral vascular applications segment accounted for the major share of the market owing to the significant availability of clinical evidence to support the therapeutic efficacy of atherectomy in PVD treatment and growing patient preference for minimally invasive surgical procedures.
