Report presents summary of reimbursement situation for several procedures for treatment of deep vein thrombosis of lower extremities.

Sample pages are provided for an older version of the report. Before delivery to the client, the report is updated to the current state (e.g., 2022 coding, tariffs, and policy considerations). 

Procedures, included into analysis include:

  • Mechanical thrombectomy
  • Systemic thrombolysis
  • Catheter-directed thrombolysis
  • Ultrasound-enhanced catheter-directed thrombolysis

The following clinical situations are considered:

  • Stand-alone procedure, performed as primary procedure due to admission due to deep vein thrombosis
  • Procedure, performed as secondary procedure for DVT, developed during hospital admission for coronary artery bypass grafting or hip replacement
    • Analysis is performed for CABG and hip replacement
      • With no complications
      • With DVT and no interventional treatment
      • With DVT and interventional treatment

Analysis is performed only for non-elective hospital admission with at least an overnight stay.

Report includes essential information about reimbursement and national funding of the percutaneous procedures, including:

  • Brief overview of reimbursement system for medical devices
  • Procedure coding for technology
  • Diagnosis coding
  • Payment mechanism for technology
  • Reimbursement tariffs for technology
  • Restrictions in indications or scenarios for use of technology
  • Policy considerations by payers and policy-makers about technology

Reimbursement information is provided for the following geographies:

  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Denmark
  • England (UK)
  • France
  • Germany
  • Italy
  • Netherlands
  • Norway
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland

It is also possible to add analysis in Czech Republic, Finland, Hungary, Romania, Russia and Turkey.
