Heart Valves in Europe: The Mix Will Change

This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

According to "European Markets for Heart Valve Repair and Replacement Products," Medtech Insight's recent report, in the coming years growth in the heart valve industry will be somewhat flat in Europe-with a compound annual growth rate in the overall number of procedures of 1.6% between now and 2013. However, that number reflects a drop in the number of mechanical valves used, and a rise in tissue valves, which are enjoying increased uptake with each generation of technological improvements.
