Minimally invasive procedures are gaining popularity due to their advantages over traditional open-heart surgeries. Heart closure devices play a crucial role in these procedures by providing efficient and effective closure of structural defects or access sites, reducing the need for large incisions, and promoting faster recovery times for patients. Similarly, the heart closure devices market is expanding in emerging economies due to improving healthcare infrastructure, rising healthcare awareness, and increasing affordability. These variables offer significant growth opportunities for companies involved in manufacturing and distributing heart closure devices.

Heart closure devices, also known as occluders or septal occluders, are medical devices used to close abnormal openings in the heart, particularly atrial or ventricular septal defects. These defects are congenital conditions where there are abnormal openings between the chambers of the heart, allowing blood to flow in unintended directions.

However, the potential complications and adverse events related to heart closure devices may hamper the heart closure devices market growth. These can include device dislodgement, migration, fracture, or embolization. These complications may require additional interventions or surgery to retrieve or reposition the device. In some cases, blood clots may form on the surface of the device or in the area surrounding it. These clots can potentially lead to stroke, heart attack, or other ischemic events if they dislodge and travel to other parts of the body. Some individuals may experience allergic reactions to the materials used in heart closure devices, particularly if they have a known allergy to certain metals or other components.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on the heart closure devices markets. During the pandemic, healthcare systems worldwide faced immense pressure due to the surged number of COVID-19 cases. As a result, many routine and non-urgent medical procedures including heart closure device implantation procedures were delayed or postponed. This delay in diagnosis and treatment had an impact on the demand for heart closure devices. Non-essential surgeries and treatments were delayed prioritizing COVID-19 patients. This had led to decreased utilization of products during the pandemic. The global medical device supply chain experienced disruptions during the pandemic and these disruptions had led to delays in the production, distribution, and availability of heart closure products, impacting market demand. 

However, in 2021, the technological advancements and incorporation of advanced imaging techniques have augmented target disease diagnosis and treatment compliance and promoted the acceptance of products. In addition, some of the procedures if not performed on time may lead to the death of patients. Hence, despite the coronavirus crisis, such emergency procedures were performed in healthcare facilities across the world. Furthermore, focused efforts were being undertaken by numerous hospitals, cardiologists, and healthcare authorities to restore the flow of cardiovascular procedures.

Heart Closure Devices Market Trends

Heart closure devices have witnessed significant technological advancements in recent years. Novel bioabsorbable closure devices are designed to provide temporary support for wound closure and subsequently degrade or absorb within the body. These devices eliminate the need for a second procedure to remove sutures or metal clips, reducing patient discomfort and the risk of complications. Magnetic closure devices are an emerging technology for closing surgical incisions in cardiovascular procedures. These devices use magnets to hold the edges of an incision together, allowing for a less invasive closure method compared to traditional sutures or staples. The magnets can be adjusted externally, allowing for precise control over the closure.

Magnetic closure devices have the potential to reduce scarring and promote faster wound healing. Moreover, suture-mediated closure devices have been developed to facilitate the closure of large arterial access sites after minimally invasive cardiac procedures. These devices consist of a collagen plug or other materials that are deployed at the site of arterial puncture. Suture-mediated closure devices provide a secure closure and can potentially reduce the time required for post-procedure bed rest. Overall, technological advancements hold promise in improving heart closure devices performance efficiently.
