Heart defects are associated with the structure of the heart. When any defect appears in the structure of the heart, it disrupts the normal flow of blood through the heart. The blood flow can slow down and sometimes flow in the wrong direction or to the wrong place and blocked completely. Sometimes, many heart defects are present at birth. For instance, congenital heart defect (CHD) is the most common type of birth defect. Some CHDs also cause heart block. Heart block is one of the severe medical conditions that occur with the heart’s electrical system. This electrical system controls the rate and rhythm of heartbeats. These types of heart defects require specific heart closure devices for their treatment.
The global heart closure device market is categorized based on the different types of heart defects. Some of the major heart defects are Left Atrial Appendage (LAA), Atrial Septal Defect (ASD), Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO), Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) and Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA).
In terms of geographic, North America dominates the global heart closure device market. The U.S. represents the largest market for heart defect closure device followed by Canada in North America. However, Asia is expected to show high growth rates in the next five years in global heart defect closure device market due to increasing aging population. Older people are more susceptible towards heart stroke than adults. This would increase the demand of heart closure devices for their treatment. China and India are expected to be the fastest growing heart defect closure device markets in Asia.
