Unit sales have been decreasing in recent years due to the comparable declines in angioplasty procedures. Since often more than one balloon inflation syringe is used per angioplasty procedure, sales volumes of these devices will be more comparable to balloon catheter sales. Over the forecast period, the number of balloon-inflation devices sold is expected to parallel growth in the number of angioplasty procedures.
The primary uses of balloon-inflation devices are to inflate dilation balloons for stent placement as well as to inject contrast agents for use in diagnostic procedures. Balloon-inflation devices usually consist of a syringe, and sometimes a pressure gauge and a tube to connect the inflation device to the balloon catheter. Balloon-inflation devices are commonly designed to be inflated and deflated with one hand, allowing them to be operated very easily by just one person. Sometimes balloon-inflation devices can be used with self-expanding stents to confirm that they are seated properly and in no danger of moving.
