The Japanese interventional cardiology devices market is forecast to grow by 6% annually during 2008-2015 to reach $1.4 billion by 2015. The market is expected to be driven by increasing incidence of coronary diseases, increasing preference for minimally invasive procedures Minimally invasive surgical procedures avoid open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery with less trauma. These procedures involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an , and product innovation enabling physicians to perform Percutaneous Coronary Intervention Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), commonly known as coronary angioplasty or simply angioplasty, is a therapeutic procedure to treat the stenotic (narrowed) coronary arteries of the heart found in coronary heart disease.  (PCI (1) (Payment Card Industry) See PCI DSS.

) of 16% during 2001-2008, and was valued at $718m in 2008. The introduction of Drug Eluting Stents (DES) in 2004 by Cordis fuelled growth in the market. In 2008, the DES market accounted for more than 80% of the total coronary stents market. This phenomenal growth was supported by strong clinical evidence showing reduced restenosis rates with DES compared to Bare Metal 1. bare metal - New computer hardware, unadorned with such snares and delusions as an operating system, an HLL, or even assembler.
