There is an emerging trend towards the use of minimally invasive procedures to treat heart conditions. The aging population is driving the market since the elderly in need of treatment are often not suitable for open heart surgery. As a result, procedures such as transcatheter heart valve replacement (THVR) are gaining prominence. These devices are replacing the heart valves used in open heart surgery as the standard way of replacing heart valves. If given the choice, many patients would prefer the less invasive transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) procedure to open heart surgery. Rapid growth in...

Massive Declines in the U.S. Gastric Band Market as Surgeons Switch to More Cost-Effective Gastric Bypass and Sleeve Gastrectomy Procedures

There has been a massive decline in growth rate of the gastric band market since 2008, as most surgeons switched to gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy procedures. Many surgeons felt that the fitting of a gastric band was not only more dangerous than a sleeve gastrectomy or gastric bypass procedure, but also not as profitable as the other options. Unlike a sleeve gastrectomy procedure, which does not require any follow up, the fitting of a gastric band requires the surgeon to check up on the patient up to 3 times a year over a 2-year period in order to monitor patient progress. Although this arrangement is beneficial for the patient, surgeons find that these follow-ups are not cost-effective. While the rate of individuals considered to be severely obese...
