Follow us on LinkedIn – Stroke is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the world. Aging population constitutes a major growth engine for the global intracranial stents market, given that people above the age of 40 years are at a higher risk of developing cerebrovascular diseases. The fast aging societies in advanced economies of North America, Western Europe and Japan coupled with the huge aging demography in highly populous developing economies such as China and India, are expected to result in a considerable increase in health conditions warranting a rise in demand for intracranial stenting procedures. Additionally, changing lifestyles, increasing stress levels, hypertension, rising obesity rates, increasing blood cholesterol and blood pressure levels, smoking and hyperlipidemia, among others are some of the major factors that have increased the incidence rates of stroke. The rising number of cases of restenosis, indicated by the recurrence of stenosis and subsequent constriction in blood flow in previously treated arteries, is fuelling the requirement for intracranial stenting procedures.
Conventional therapy involves the prescription of aspirin, Warfarin and other blood thinning agents for restoring normal blood flow in patients with narrowed arteries. Intracranial Stents, inspired by the coronary and cardiovascular stent systems, have revolutionized treatment of arterial blockages and clot retrieval in patients suffering with cerebral aneurysms, severe intracranial atherosclerotic disease (ICAD), intracranial stenosis, acute ischemic stroke and other diseases of the brain. These stenting systems have been successfully used in
