Understanding the Peripheral Intervention Toolkit
Frost & Sullivan, July 2012, Pages: 187
In February 2010, Frost & Sullivan surveyed 157 vascular surgeons, interventional cardiologists, and interventional radiologists on a broad range of issues relating to peripheral intervention procedures. This study is based on their responses to an extensive online questionnaire. The study addresses balloons and stents, atherectomy devices, thrombectomy devices, and endovenous ablation. A wide variety of topics are covered in the study, including respondents’ purchasing authority; referral pathways; treatment selection criteria; patient awareness of/receptivity to treatment options; procedures currently in use and likely to be adopted; and primary, secondary, and last-resort treatment options by pathology.
The key objectives of this end-user research—based on data from clinical specialists including vascular surgeons, interventional cardiologists, and interventional radiologists— are to:
- Evaluate behavior analytics and probe for unmet needs of interventionalists and vascular surgeons pertaining to their practice
- Uncover adoption trends, treatment selection criteria, and prevalence of off-label usage of stents
- Assess levels of patient awareness
- Assess trends related to screening and diagnosis
- Understand purchasing structure and other institutional factors impacting utilization
This study also probes patient pathways, awareness/access to newer technologies, current and expected patient demographics, product preferences, access to care, and other dynamics that can shape market projections.
