According to a new cardiac surgery market study by iData Research, the number of cardiac surgeries exceeds 900,000 procedures each year in the United States with projections for the number to reach 1.3M by 2029. The US Cardiac surgery market is growing rapidly driven by the growth of many underlying procedures.

The number of cardiac surgery procedures commonly includes:

  • Surgical Heart Valve Replacement Procedures
  • Annuloplasty Repair Procedures
  • Transcatheter Mitral Valve Repair Procedures
  • Transcatheter Heart Valve Replacement
  • Balloon Valvuloplasty Procedures
  • Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting Procedures
  • Transmyocardial Revascularization Procedures
  • Ventricular Assist Device Procedures
  • Intra-Aortic Balloon Counterpulsation
  • Heart Transplant Procedures
  • Remote Hemodynamic Monitoring System
  • Patent Foramen Ovale Closure Procedures
  • Patent Ductus Arteriosus Device Procedures
  • Septal Defect Closure Procedures
  • Left Atrial Appendage LAA Closure
  • Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation Procedures

Top Cardiac Surgeries

Cardiac surgery is a fast-growing market, associated with many related types of rapidly growing procedures. New types of products and technological advancements spur the growth. In addition, there is a growing need for cardiac surgery as the average age of the U.S. population increases.

In 2022, the dominant share of medical procedures consisted of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) procedures, making them the most prevalent type in that year. However, despite their prevalence, CABG procedures have been on a gradual decline due to the emergence and increasing popularity of more effective alternative treatments. Within the realm of coronary bypass grafting, there are two primary techniques: on-pump and off-pump coronary artery procedures, each offering distinct advantages and considerations in the field of cardiac surgery.

Following coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) procedures, the second most prevalent category of medical interventions comprises surgical heart valve replacements. However, surgical heart valve replacement has witnessed a substantial decrease in its frequency, largely attributed to the advent and increasing utilization of transcatheter heart valve replacement (THVR) technologies and products. THVR procedures are expected to increase in volume over the forecast period. The increase in procedural volume will be powered by the large population of patients who would benefit from THVR, improved diagnostic capabilities, advancements in transcatheter aortic valve technology and the expanding indication for use of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) devices.

The fastest-growing cardiac surgery in the US by the growth in numbers is Left Atrial Appendage (LAA).  Endocardial procedures are expected to increase strongly as patients seeking to avoid long-term anticoagulation therapy select endocardial devices as a treatment option for LAA management.

According to the recent market study by iData Research, the total cardiac surgery procedure volume is expected to continue growing at about 4% per year, reaching over 1.3 million annual procedures in 2029. While the COVID19 pandemic resulted in a significant decline in cardiac surgery procedures in 2020, the procedure volumes are expected to continue growing over the forecast period.
