Innovative technological advancements drive growth in the neuromodulation market. Extended battery lifespans, directional leads and higher frequency stimulation have all been incorporated in recent years. Regulatory issues may limit growth in the intrathecal pump market over the next years as two leading competitors face challenges. Flowonix had the CE mark for its pump suspended in 2016. Medtronic faces an FDA consent decree and regulators in the U.K. recently published a report on specific issues with device functioning. A major emerging trend in the neurological market is the growth of mechanical thrombectomy devices for ischemic stroke. These devices extend the window for treatment of patients compared to medical therapy alone and can provide dramatically improved clinical outcomes.
