Atrial fibrillation is a type of cardiac arrhythmia identified by an abnormal cardiac rhythm caused by a disturbance in the heart's electrical system. Atrial fibrillation (AF) is one of the most commonly occurring cardiac rhythm conditions. As a potentially life-threatening disease and a condition that's expensive to treat, the healthcare system views treatment for this condition as a strategically critical area to address. This report analyzes the market for atrial fibrillation from the point of view of various pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment products.
The pharmacological AF treatment market has been further classified into the specific drugs commonly used for treating AF, namely anti-arrythmics and anti-coagulants. The non-pharmacological atrial fibrillation devices market has been further sub-divided into therapeutic procedures such as catheter ablation procedures, maze surgery and electric cardioversion. The major methods of catheter ablation procedures studied in this report include radiofrequency, high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), cryoablation, microwave ablation and laser catheter ablation.
