Cardiovascular treatment: largest treatment type segment

Factors such as rheumatic heart disease, hypertension, obesity, and diabetes are the key factors contributing to the increasing prevalence of cardiac diseases globally. This has increased the cost burden of individuals and governments in various countries.
