Coronary stents are vital medical devices commonly employed in angioplasty procedures, aimed at opening clogged coronary arteries due to coronary artery disease (CAD). These stents are utilized when coronary arteries become obstructed by underlying atherosclerosis disease. This procedure, known as percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), has revolutionized the treatment of coronary artery disease since its inception in the late 1980s with the development of the first balloon-expandable stents. These devices have significantly altered the treatment landscape for CAD, the leading cause of death globally.

CAD arises from the buildup of plaque in the coronary arteries, leading to restricted blood flow to the heart, which can result in chest pain (angina), heart attacks, and heart failure.

Previously, the conventional treatment for CAD involved bypass surgery, an invasive procedure. However, coronary stents, small expandable mesh tubes, are now inserted into narrowed coronary arteries to keep them open and enhance blood flow.

Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), also referred to as angioplasty with stenting, is a minimally invasive procedure that employs catheters to deliver and implant the stent.

What Are Coronary Stents?

Coronary stents are small, expandable tubes made of metal mesh. They are used to prop open narrowed or blocked arteries in the heart, allowing blood to flow freely.

Types of Coronary Stents

  1. Drug-Eluting Stents (DES): These stents are coated with medications that help prevent the artery from becoming blocked again.
  2. Bare-Metal Stents (BMS): These stents are not coated with medication and are primarily used in patients who cannot tolerate DES.
  3. Bioabsorbable Stents: These stents slowly dissolve over time, leaving behind natural vessel tissue.

Market Growth Drivers

Increasing Prevalence of Cardiovascular Diseases

  • Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), including coronary artery disease, are among the leading causes of mortality worldwide. The rising incidence of CVDs is a significant driver of the coronary stent market.

Technological Advancements

  • Advancements in stent technology have led to the development of innovative products with improved efficacy and safety profiles. For instance, the introduction of bioabsorbable stents has reduced the risk of long-term complications associated with traditional stents.

Aging Population

  • The aging population is more susceptible to cardiovascular diseases, thereby increasing the demand for coronary stents. As life expectancy rises, the prevalence of CVDs is expected to grow, further driving market growth.

Increasing Adoption of Minimally Invasive Procedures

  • Minimally invasive procedures, such as percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), have become preferred options for treating coronary artery disease. These procedures involve smaller incisions, shorter recovery times, and reduced risks compared to traditional open-heart surgeries, driving the demand for coronary stents.
