Cost of a heart bypass in various countries 2019

A heart bypass is a surgical procedure where an artery or vein that feeds blood to the heart is redirected around an internal blockage in the vein or artery. The cost of such a procedure varies significantly globally. As of 2019, the U.S. had the highest costs of any country for a heart bypass. At that time the cost in the U.S. was about 123 thousand U.S. dollars. Among countries compared, India had the lowest cost for a heart bypass at just under 8 thousand U.S. dollars.

Cardiovascular diseases

Cardiovascular diseases are a serious issue that can lead to heart attack and death if left untreated. As of 2016, the leading cause of death globally was ischemic heart disease. This is a condition that is caused by blockage of blood flow to the heart and is also referred to as coronary heart disease. Despite it being a major cause of death globally, within the U.S. the number of deaths due to heart diseases are on the decline. There are other types of heart diseases that can lead to sudden cardiac arrest including arrythmia.

Cardiac monitors market

Cardiac monitors and cardiac event recorders are one way that doctors can monitor patients with conditions such as arrythmia that can lead to sudden cardiac arrest. Arrythmia is a common condition among patients that have received a heart bypass surgery. The market for cardiac event monitors has been increasing in recent years and is projected to continue slowly increasing in the future. The revenue generated by the sales of these devices, however, is expected to nearly double by the year 2026, indicating a positive outlook for the market. A majority of the cardiac arrythmia monitoring devices globally are used in hospitals.
