Peripheral vascular devices can be used for treating either coronary arterial or peripheral arterial disease (PAD). Older individuals and those who are obese have a higher risk of developing PAD. As result of a general increase in peripheral procedures and the development of new lower-limb treatments, the market for these products continue to grow rapidly in the US. Here are the top 5 peripheral vascular devices based on the iData Research report measuring the total value of the peripheral vascular device market in the US.

5. Atherectomy Devices
Atherectomy is a procedure used for removing plaque deposits from arteries. They have traditionally been more effective in peripheral than coronary applications. Atherectomy is popular because of a lack of alternative treatments. Half of peripheral atherectomy procedures were performed below-the-knee, but is an established above-the-knee procedure as well.

4. Percutaneous Transluminal Angioplasty (PTA) Balloon Catheters
PTA balloon catheters treat peripheral vascular lesion by expanding the lumen of an obstructed blood vessel or the PTA balloon catheter is used for expanding stents to treat vascular blockages. These devices are used in both coronary and peripheral applications. PTA balloons used for peripheral procedures consist of a catheter with a deflated vinyl balloon attached at the tip.

3. Transcatheter Embolization Devices
Transcatheter embolization is the practice of introducing material to within the vasculature to induce blood flow occlusions. There are three types of most commonly used transcatheter embolization devices: particle embolics, coil embolics and liquid embolics. These devices are effective for treating vessel malformations such as aneurysms, fistulae and bleeding. If left untreated, some of these arteriovenous malformations can ultimately lead to strokes.

2. Stent Grafts
There are two types of stent grafts, those used for abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) and those used for thoracic aortic aneurysms (TAA). AAA is the 13th-leading cause of death in the U.S. and the tenth-leading cause of death for men over the age of 65. The most common location for aortic aneurysms is in the abdominal aorta. The rest occur in the thoracic area. As a result, approximately 90% of AAAs are located below the level of the renal arteries, and approximately two-thirds extend into one or both of the iliac arteries.

1. Peripheral Vascular Stents
Stents are commonly used as complementary devices during conventional PTA balloon catheterization in peripheral vascular procedures. The placement of a stent mitigates some complications such as negative remodeling and elastic recoil effects. However, post-surgery restenosis, the re-narrowing of the treated blood vessel leading to decreased blood flow, commonly occurs at stenting procedure site. Therefore, technological innovations, such as covered stents which physically block cellular intrusion from neointimal hyperplasia (NIHA), have already become commercialized.
