Frost & Sullivan Release: Backlash From Device Failures In Cardiac Rhythm Management Market Stunts Growth In 2005

PALO ALTO, Calif., March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The Healthcare Group at Frost & Sullivan is pleased to announce its Exclusive Healthcare 2006 Quarterly Analyst Briefing Presentation on the Cardiac Rhythm Management Market to be held on Thursday, March 30, 2006 at 12:00pm CST / 1:00pm EST.

The Cardiac Rhythm Management Market is on the brink of the largest swell of patient demand in industry history. Unfortunately due to device recalls in 2005 and subsequent heightened regulatory monitoring the market was unable to realize its full growth potential in 2005. Market participants that can couple the inherent rise in cardiac arrhythmia patients with an aggressive marketing strategy targeting safety, efficiency, and innovation could accelerate market penetration rates and realize full market potential.

Highlights of the briefing include: an analysis of the pacemaker, implantable cardioverter defibrillator, cardiac resynchronization therapy, and emerging cardiac ablation markets.

The briefing will provide device manufacturers, distributors, individual component manufacturers, end-users, existing and emerging industry participants with an overview of the Cardiac Rhythm Management Industry, in addition to providing forward projections for the market and the possible ripple effect market events could have on the healthcare industry as a whole.

"Refinement of implantation procedures and progression of technology have drastically improved the viability of utilizing medical device technology to effectively and comprehensively treat patients living with the life- threatening and debilitating side effects of cardiac arrhythmia," observes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Venkat Rajan.

Frost & Sullivan will hold this conference call at 12:00 pm (CST) / 1:00 pm (EST) on Thursday, March 30, 2006, which will provide industry participants an outlook of the Cardiac Rhythm Management Market.
