iData recently conducted a survey on cardiovascular stent usage in the United States. To share a few of our findings we created a video that provides you with survey details.
For those of you interested in what the market is doing regionally we segmented responses for the US by geographical areas pertaining to trends in stent use for stenting vessels, lesions, delivery methods and procedural volumes.
Types of procedures performed by region in the U.S.
The Midwestern region of the U.S performed direct stenting procedures more often than anywhere else.
Responses for brand and type of stent used geographically.
In the Northeastern region, most cardiologists preferred Xience by Abbott Vascular but in all other regions, Promus by Boston Scientific was the preferred brand.
Types of vessels and lesions stented the most often overall and by region.
In the Western states of the U.S. the Middle lesion is the most common type stented with 28% of the responses. In the Northeast, Proximal lesions were the most popular at 32%. The Southern US reported equal use of Middle and Proximal as their most common with 30% and finally in the Midwest we see that again the respondents are using Proximal more often with 26%.
Types of Vessel Stented used organized by region.
In the Western U.S., the most common type of vessel stented was the left anterior descending artery with 29% of the responses. In the Northeast, both the left anterior descending artery and the right coronary arteries were the most common at 29% each. In the South and the Midwest, left anterior descending arteries were the vessels most commonly stented with 31% and 27% respectively.
