North America Inferior Vena Cava Filters Market Analysis and Market Forecasts Report

Press Release   •   Oct 06, 2016 04:52 EDT

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a potentially lethal disease consisting of two related conditions: deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). There remains a small subset of patients with absolute or relative contraindication to anticoagulation, at high risk of embolism, or prone to PE despite adequate anticoagulation. For these patients, physicians may opt to place an inferior vena cava filter (IVCF) as a therapeutic or prophylactic treatment. While historically the adoption of IVCF increased rapidly due to the introduction of retrievable devices, new clinical evidence has come to light that is likely to inhibit any significant market expansion over the coming years.

This report focuses on the market outlook for IVCF in North America (Canada, Mexico, and the US). The market forecast for this technology is determined for the region covered in the report.
