Market Outline: Global Atherectomy Devices Market


Atherectomy is a minimally invasive surgery to remove the atherosclerotic plaque from arteries. Atherosclerotic plaque either localized in coronary or peripheral atrial vasculature and many have different characteristics based on the texture. Atherosclerotic devices are used for atherectomy. There are various atherectomy devices which are designed based on their mechanisms such as cut, save, sand or vaporize the plaques and have different indications. Atherectomy is an alternative to angioscopy and it is also used for the coronary artery disease.
