Global plaque modification devices market: Technological advances

Constant advances in the care for CADs lead to improved treatment and availability of devices such as guide wires, micro-catheters, and stents to treat conditions such as CTOs. Technological advances also lead to the improvement in the general approach to treating CTOs involving techniques such as the hybrid approach. This method involves wires going around the plaque and re-entering the vessel after the occlusion.

“In 2017, a major vendor launched the first and only re-entry device with intravascular sound capabilities and needle deployment designed to assist arterial vessel intervention. Intravascular sound captures images of vessels in the peripheral vascular system from inside the artery. This allows physicians to identify a targeted area and place a catheter at a specific location,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on orthopedics and medical devices.
