High Popularity of Minimally Invasive Technique for Neuroendovascular Diseases

December, 2018

Neuroendovascular surgeries are innovative and have wide acceptability across globe. The rise in minimally invasive surgical procedures under image-guided techniques to treat diseases of the brain and spinal cord have emerged substantially in past few years. These are complex brain surgeries involving treatment of neuroendovascular diseases occurring inside the blood vessels. There are various procedures such as: embolization (for intracranial aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, and tumors) and revascularization techniques such as angioplasty and stenting for atherosclerotic disease.

The introduction of new state-of-the-art neurosurgical devices such as flow diversion devices, neuroendovascular stents, liquid embolic, clot retrieval, and balloon catheter are replacing the conventional and traditional treatment such as surgical clipping and pharmacological therapy. The advancement in product development in neurosurgical devices and its better clinical outcomes have created awareness and recognition of neurosurgical devices in the market. Using advanced multimodality image guidance techniques, for both diagnosis and treatment of various neurointerventional disorders are performed by navigating devices and catheters through arteries and veins. Most of the neurosurgical devices have evolved with new technologies that have brought knowledge to both surgeons and patients. The technological advancement in treating ruptured and unruptured aneurysm has driven the market growth over the past decade. Cerebrovascular diseases are chronic conditions caused due to the poor or episodic supply of blood to the brain. There are many neurological disorders, but cerebrovascular diseases (stroke, transient ischemic attack, subarachnoid hemorrhage, and vascular dementia) account for more than 57% of the total percentage of overall neurological disorders.

In the past few years, drug therapy involved the usage of warfarin, aspirin, with other blood thinning agents to restore normal blood flow in individuals with narrow arteries. Like-wise, surgical clipping was performed in patients with bulged blood vessel that was closed using a clip. This had lower positive results and had many complications during surgery and postoperative surgery. The advancement in neurosurgical devices has led surgeons to use neuro-endovascular coils and other non-coil devices, which provide long-term cure when compared to drug therapies. Vendors in the market are focusing on achieving satisfactory clinical results focusing on safety and efficacy of flow diversion devices, neurostimulation devices, coils, stents, and advanced surgical navigation systems that are going to increase the adoption in the coming years. This will bring recognition to researchers and manufacturers in developing innovative products to treat various neuro-related complications.
