Mechanical Thrombectomy Market Analysis | Europe | 2017-2023 | 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.

There will be significant market growth in the mechanical thrombectomy market over the forecast period, driven by growth in unit sales as mechanical thrombectomy is adopted as standard of care for acute ischemic stroke patients.
In recent years, new innovative treatment options have entered the market. Studies have shown that patients who receive intravenous tPA in conjunction with endovascular therapy have significantly improved clinical outcomes versus those who only receive tPA. The initial device involved a wired-caged device called a stent retriever that was inserted into the patients body endovascularly and maneuvered to the blocked blood vessel to grab the clot.
