A stent is a metallic or a polymer tube implanted into the lumen of any blood vessel or a duct in order to keep the passage open. A variety of stents for different clinical conditions are available in the market. A stent implant is most commonly used for the treatment of cardiac abnormalities such as blocked blood vessels. In addition, stents are implanted in the esophagus to allow the passage of food and beverages in patients suffering from esophageal cancer. They are also inserted in the ureter to prevent obstruction of urine flow from kidney, in the gall bladder to allow passage of bile in patients suffering from gall bladder cancer, and in the abdomen & gastrointestinal tract. A bioabsorbable stent is a special type of stent which can be dissolved or reabsorbed within the patients body.
World bioabsorbable stents market is driven by several factors such as rising geriatric population, who are more susceptible to strokes and require a stent implant for treatment, technological advancements in stents, increased adoption rate of these devices, and increased risk of restenosis in patients undergoing angioplasty. In addition, unhealthy diet habits and lack of necessary physical activity lead to the development of cardiovascular diseases, and hence increase the need for percutaneous coronary interventions. Also, the disappearance of the stents from the treated site has several other advantages such as, facilitation of repeat treatments, reduction in late-stent thrombosis, and others. Especially in pediatrics surgery bioabsorbable stents do not require surgical removal and facilitate vessels growth. However, high cost of stent implant procedures and stringent government regulations for the approval of stents are factors restraining the market growth.
