NEW YORK, Jan. 29 Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Ventricular Assist Devices - Global Trends

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0164253/Ventricular-Assist-Devices---Global-Trends.html

Globally, about one million people suffer from end-stage heart failure. With demand for heart transplantation, the traditional procedure for end-stage heart failure, surpassing the availability of donor hearts, use of ventricular assist devices (VADs) has emerged as an ideal alternative form of treatment for such patients. Development of VADs with improved design, features and durability is expected to expand its adoption across a broader patient population, including women and children.

Besides, the arrival of second generation and third generation VADs has expanded the scope of using destination therapy as an early intervention measure in the treatment of heart failure, thereby offering hope to several heart failure patients. Destination Therapy holds vast potential in the overall ventricular assist devices (VAD) market, driven primarily by the benefits of procedure when compared to conventional heart transplantations. Further, the procedure holds promise owing to its use among patients who are otherwise ineligible for donor hearts due to old age or severe sickness.

These and other market data and trends are presented in "Ventricular Assist Devices: Global Trends" by BizAcumen, Inc. Our reports are designed to be most comprehensive in geographic coverage and vertical market analyses.
