com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue: Pacemakers and Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy Pacemakers (CRT-P) - Global Pipeline Analysis, Competitive Landscape and Market Forecasts to 2017 http://www.
Accumulating clinical data support the promise of cardiac resynchronization therapy as a component of treatment for advanced heart failure, which once consigned sufferers to a steadily deteriorating quality of life and an apprehensive, often fruitless, wait for a heart transplant.

S cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) and ventricular assist devices (VAD) markets.
The study thoroughly examines the following segments of the market: pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillators, cardiac resynchronization therapy devices, and cardiac ablation systems.
The new ACC/AHA/ESC guidelines are based on the best available medical evidence, and specifically support the use of device therapy - such as cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) and implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) - as the standard of care in a broad range of at-risk, indicated heart failure and post-myocardial infarction patients.
A CRT-D device provides cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) for patients with heart failure (HF), a progressive condition that weakens the heart, causes the lower chambers of the heart (ventricles) to beat out of sync, and results in the heart's inability to effectively pump an adequate supply of blood to the body.
Cardiac resynchronization therapy is designed to coordinate the contraction of the heart's two lower chambers and improve the heart's efficiency to increase blood flow to the body.
