The Future of Drug-Eluting Stents Part I: Novel Next-Generation Designs

Executive Summary

Growth by innovation is almost considered a birthright in interventional cardiology, and based on presentations at this year's Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics meeting, held this September in San Francisco, it seems clear that innovation still reigns supreme in this specialty. However, as in other medical device markets, ongoing economic and regulatory pressures are taking their toll, particularly in the drug-eluting stent market, as the field adjusts to a new era of cost control and economic uncertainty.

TCT 2010: TAVI Takes Center Stage

In the interventional cardiology community, 2010 could certainly be considered a breakthrough year for percutaneous heart valve devices. At two major US cardiology conferences: the American College of Cardiology in the spring, and most recently, the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics symposium, held in September, impressive results from randomized trials of transcatheter heart valve replacement/repair devices set the venues abuzz and had physicians speculating about possible near-term paradigm shifts in the way heart valve disease will be treated. The big questions now are how long it will take before these devices reach the US market, and exactly how many US patients are likely to be implanted once they are available.

EuroPCR Highlights: TAVI Set to Continue Rampant Growth

With innovation as the theme of this year's EuroPCR meeting, emerging technology sessions and innovation presentations sparked lively discussions. While drug-eluting stents remained a key interest area, transcatheter aortic heart valve implantation sessions drew the largest crowds.
