Mechanical Thrombectomy Market Analysis | Europe | 2019-2025 | MedCore

Ischemic Stroke is caused by an obstruction within a blood vessel that is supplying blood to the brain. This is often caused by blood clots but can also be caused by other substances like plaques. The gold standard treatment for strokes for many years has been the administration of clot dissolving or clot busting medication called tissue plasminogen activator (tPA). This type of drug must be administered as soon as possible, with a four hour window from symptom onset, to increase chances of recovery. A significant number of patients do not get to healthcare facilities quickly enough to meet that window and even some of those who do, later experience hemorrhagic complications from the medication. It is very effective for smaller clots but often fails to break up larger clots. Some patients cannot receive tPA, in which cases physicians rely on antiplatelet or anticoagulant medicine to ensure blood clots do not get larger.

Neurovascular Catheters Market Analysis | Europe | 2019-2025 | MedCore

Neurovascular catheters, also known as microcatheters, are a type of catheter small enough to be used in neurovascular procedures. The devices are very narrow in order to traverse the fine vessels within the brain. Microcatheters are designed with several properties in mind: hydrophilic coating, softness, trackability and stability.
Neurovascular catheters are used to deliver detachable coils, stents, liquid embolics, thrombectomy devices and pharmaceutical products directly to the brain. They are often used for treating aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), trauma and strokes. Microcatheters are offered with different varieties of tips, which allow physicians to choose the appropriate tip for a specific location in the brain. The devices also vary in diameter, which is measured in French (F) size, where one F is equal to 0.33 mm. Although tip and diameter can vary widely, microcatheters are grouped by guiding systems. There are three types of microcatheters: over-the-wire, flow directed and guide catheters.

Neurovascular Stents Market Analysis | Europe | 2019-2025 | MedCore

There are two main types of neurovascular stents currently on the market, the traditional stent and the flow diverter stent. They are both used as treatments for cerebral aneurysms.
Traditional neurovascular stents are small, flexible, tube-like devices used for stabilizing detachable coils within an aneurysm. They serve to block off the aneurysm and to prevent coils from slipping back into the main blood vessel. These stents are also used to treat intracranial stenosis by opening blocked arteries.
These stents are delivered in reduced tube structures for easier navigation and delivery through the narrow intracranial vessels. As brain arteries are more fragile than carotid arteries, a self-expanding stent that gently opens to the desired vessel diameter is generally used. Self-expandable stents carry a lower risk of dissection or vessel rupture when compared to the balloon-expandable stents.

Stereotactic Devices Market Analysis | Europe | 2019-2025 | MedCore

Stereotaxy allows neurosurgeons to localize targets within patient’s brains using methodology that incorporates coordinate systems with diagnostic image information. It was first conducted in 1908 by two British scientists, Sir Victor Horsley and Robert H. Clarke who placed frames on small animals based on external anatomical landmarks to navigate to specific points in their brains. This technology was not yet precise enough to be used in human subjects.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulators Market Analysis | Europe | 2019-2025 | MedCore

Transcranial magnetic stimulators (TMS) are a non-invasive method of brain stimulation that utilizes electromagnetic induction to conduct research and deliver therapeutic treatment.
The medical device contains an insulated coil which generates brief magnetic pulses that pass painlessly through the skull and into the brain. When used for therapeutic means, these pulses are repeated multiple times to produce longer lasting changes. These pulses are delivered approximately once per second for thirty minutes to an hour multiple times a week. While one pulse per second is often used, devices are capable of reaching higher rates. This treatment is generally referred to as repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) and it has been tested as a means to treat a variety of neurological and psychiatric disorders.

Neurosurgery Navigation Systems Market Analysis | United States | 2017-2023 | MedCore

Neurosurgery navigation, or neuronavigation, requires the use of computer-assisted technologies to guide or “navigate” neurosurgeons during cranial procedures. This type of surgery evolved from stereotactic surgery, which gained popularity during the 1940s. Stereotaxy was developed to better locate specific small targets within the patient using a three-dimensional coordinate system. The current form of neuronavigation was established in the 1990’s but has significantly improved due to the implementation of new neuro-imaging technologies, real-time imaging capabilities, advancements in 3D localization and visualization, intraoperative capabilities, robotics and dramatic improvements in software. Neuronavigation has been at the forefront of image guided surgery (IGS) and computer assisted surgery (CAS) due to the level of sophistication associated with the procedures. It is continually evolving with the introduction of new technologies as well as the increased number of procedures for which it can be used. An example of a new technology emerging in this field is surgical virtualization. Neurosurgeons can essentially perform a trial virtual surgery using software which creates a 3D model of the surgical area, allowing them to assess the possible complications that may arise during the surgery and try alternative approaches to determine which will result in the most accurate results.

Spine Navigation Systems Market Analysis | United States | 2017-2023 | MedCore

The market for spine navigation systems, or spinal image guided surgery (IGS) systems, is closely linked to that of neurosurgical IGS systems. There are relatively few dedicated IGS systems for spinal procedures. Most spinal IGS procedures are performed using neurosurgical IGS systems with spinal software applications. Because spinal and neurosurgical operations are often performed by the same surgeons, this arrangement has worked well so far. Certain spinal procedures may require specialized instruments; however, these disposable instruments can be used with non-specialized systems that have the appropriate software. Many spinal IGS systems can be used to assist in trauma procedures once equipped with the right software and accessories. Spinal conditions treated with IGS include fractures, metastasis, spinal slip disc and spinal curvature. Spinal imaging software allows surgeons to perform on the thoracic and lumbar regions of the spine, while many have pelvic trauma applications. Recently, there has been a push to develop more dedicated spinal IGS and robotic systems that would be better suited to strictly spinal or trauma surgeries.

Aneurysm Clips Market Analysis | United States | 2020-2026 | MedCore

An aneurysm clip is a permanent fixture in the brain that resembles a tiny coil-spring clothespin made of titanium or a cobalt chromium nickel alloy. Biocompatible aneurysm clips used in the neurosurgical field are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, with known closing pressures. Aneurysm clips are placed at the neck of an aneurysm and serve to isolate the thin-walled aneurysm from arterial flow without obstructing the parent artery or other perforating arteries. Aneurysms are a localized, blood-filled balloon-bulge in the wall of a blood vessel. As an aneurysm grows, it becomes thinner and more prone to leaking or rupture. If this occurs, blood is released into the spaces around the brain, leading to a subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH).

Balloon Occlusion Devices Market Analysis | United States | 2020-2026 | MedCore

Balloon occlusion devices have inflatable balloon devices at their distal end which can be expanded to occlude an artery. Balloon occlusion devices serve a number of purposes in neurovascular procedures. They can be used to assist detachable coil procedures, similarly to stents, however these devices are temporary. In these cases they are being used to aid in the treatment of aneurysms, AVMs or fistulas. When using detachable coils there is a risk of the coils blocking flow of the parent artery if they occlude the lumen of the artery as well. In order to minimize this risk, the balloon is inflated inside the parent artery prior to the insertion of coils so that they can be packed tighter inside the aneurysm without the danger of them protruding into the lumen. A study looking at this technique in anterior aneurysms found that there was a lower complication rate with balloon assisted coiling in comparison to coiling alone however other studies have found the opposite therefore further studies are required. In some cases, balloon catheters can also be used for the placement of stents. There are a number of factors that could impact the choice to use this device for aneurysm treatment such as the clinical situation, physician’s preference, and the morphology of the aneurysm. It is worth noting that the ASP of these devices is considerably less than stents which could impact device preference as well.

Cerebrospinal Fluid Management Market Analysis | United States | 2020-2026 | MedCore

Devices in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) management market are mainly used for the treatment of hydrocephalus. Hydrocephalus, or “water on the brain,” refers to an abnormal buildup of CSF in the brain’s ventricles. Under normal biological conditions, equilibrium between the production, circulation and absorption of CSF is maintained in the ventricular cavities of the brain as CSF is continually drained away into the circulatory system. Hydrocephalus can result when absorption of fluid into the bloodstream is blocked which leads to an accumulation of CSF. This condition can result in increased intracranial pressure inside of the skull and can lead to tunnel vision, mental disability, progressive enlargement of the head and even death. Symptoms due to the increased intracranial pressure include headaches, nausea, vomiting, papilledema, coma or sleepiness. Further elevation of intracranial pressure can result in uncal and/or cerebellar herniation.
