EUROPEAN MARKETS FOR CARDIOVASCULAR DIAGNOSTICS, 2000-2005

400 Pages | 102 Exhibits | 2000 Analysis | Forecasts Through 2005

OVERVIEW:
Cardiovascular diseases impose a heavy socioeconomic burden on European healthcare systems. In the five largest European countries, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom, a total of $110 to $115 billion is spent annually for the management of cardiovascular disorders. Of this total, approximately $40 billion is spent for treating coronary heart disease, more than $15 billion for stroke, $12 billion for hypertensive disease, and approximately $8 billion for congestive heart failure. Cardiovascular diagnostic product sales, including electrocardiography, noninvasive imaging, and intravascular techniques, generated more than $1.4 billion in 1999 for the five major countries of Europe.

Reimbursement has historically led to significantly different competitive product profiles and pricing across Europe. With the impact of greater regulatory harmonization, reduced trade barriers, the euro, and European regulations, new ways of positioning products across Europe to ensure profitability are necessary. This report from Medtech Insight analyzes the technologies, products, current and forecast markets, competitors, and opportunities in this dynamic market.

Major topics in this report from Medtech Insight include: angiography catheters, guidewires & sheaths; cardiovascular-related intravascular imaging agents; computed tomography systems; electrocardiography systems; electrophysiology diagnostic catheters; intravascular ultrasound catheters; magnetic resonance imaging systems; nuclear medicine systems; ultrasound systems; and x-ray-based angiography & electrophysiology imaging systems.
