Erica J. Rogers -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Thanks, Caroline. Good afternoon and thank you for joining our first quarter 2021 earnings call. Joining me is Lucas Buchanan, our Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer.

With the beginning of the end of the pandemic insight, we are on the precipice of an exciting time, not only for Silk Road, but for the healthcare delivery system as a whole. As of April 28th, confirmed COVID-19 hospitalizations have fallen by 70% since early 2021. Furthermore, nearly 70% of the Medicare-age population in the US is fully vaccinated and getting back to routine healthcare activities.

Physicians are back to the important work of caring for patients with carotid artery disease and we are intensely focused on moving our trained physicians up the adoption curve to capitalize on the recovery we are beginning to see across the US. We have ushered in the transcarotid era, and yet we are just beginning to scratch the surface of our total addressable market opportunity. Our long-term goal is to leverage our proprietary technology and expertise in new markets and expand the pool of patients that we can address.

To this end, we are pleased with our meaningful advancements, not only toward driving the adoption curve in the US, but also toward new indications, new therapies under development, and expansion outside the US. Our first quarter performance was characterized by substantial progress across our commercial and operational initiative. Physicians performed almost 3,000 TCAR procedures in the quarter and we achieved total revenue of $22.1million, reflecting growth of 16% year-over-year.

Based on the strength of our first quarter results, momentum exiting the quarter and expectations for continued recovery throughout the year, we expect topline revenue for 2021 to be in the range of $103 million to $108 million, representing year-over-year growth of 40% at the midpoint. As anticipated significant COVID-19 hospitalizations and November and December persisted into the first two months of this year, followed by a strong recovery in March, which has continued into the second quarter. We are optimistic that the pace of recovery will continue to accelerate and patients will become increasingly comfortable reaccessing both routine and inpatient care.

Turning to our two strategic priorities for 2021, which we outlined during our fourth quarter earnings call. We continue to make meaningful strides on both: number one, US commercial execution and driving the adoption curve; and number two, preparation for a potential standard surgical risk, label expansion for the ENROUTE stent.

Starting with the adoption curve, as we've said in the past, the majority of our procedures are driven by trained physicians with at least one year of TCAR experience. That being said, it's no secret, the past year has been a challenge for our providers, patients and industry personnel unlike trying to deliver healthcare as usual in a constrained pandemic environment. Now that we are seeing some, but not all of these constraints lifted, we're intensely focused on our already trained physician base of over 1,800 physicians exiting 2020. Many of those physicians were trained in the latter part of 2019 and early 2020 just before the pandemic began. As we've stated in the past, the first year following training is crucial for physicians to create a foundation from which to confidently increase their adoption of TCAR.

To better serve these physicians, we have refocused our commercial and professional education organizations to provide additional hands-on in-person training and workshops to further adoption of TCAR and reinforce its benefits. As well we continue to develop targeted marketing and sales tools segmented by physician TCAR experience and behavioral attributes and are measuring the impact of such efforts. We are pleased with progress made during the pandemic and excited about our momentum as it subsides. Thus, as always, we are focused on the large untapped market opportunity in front of us to drive TCAR penetration in high surgical risk patients.

Moving on to our second key priority. Preparation for a potential standard surgical risk label expansion for the ENROUTE stent. As a reminder, the ENROUTE stent's current indication is for patients who are considered at high risk for having an adverse event from carotid endarterectomy or high surgical risk. Standard surgical risk simply denotes an absence of one or more high surgical risk criteria. While there is ample market opportunity within high surgical risk patients gaining access to the standard surgical risk patient population would increase our TAM by approximately 50%, while also positioning us on a level playing field with CEA for clinical decision-making.

During our fourth quarter earnings call, we indicated that we have made substantial progress with respect to our regulatory strategy by submitting a PMA supplement for the expanded indication. Furthermore, we are busy developing our launch strategy, defining reimbursement pathways, and anticipating post-approval study requirements. In addition to investments in our top two priorities, we continue to invest in long-term growth initiatives aimed at strengthening our ability to deepen and broaden our presence, as well as open up new market opportunities. These include investments in new and improved TCAR products, new Transcarotid therapies and international expansion. And we have made meaningful advancements in all three.

With respect to our product pipeline, I am very pleased to announce that the FDA recently approved an IDE for our NITE-1 feasibility study in acute ischemic stroke. In NITE-1, we will be assessing the role of Transcarotid access and flow reversal, our two core competencies in a new procedure, we call Neuroprotection in Transcarotid Embolectomy or NITE, N-I-T-E. We believe this is the first study of its kind to be conducted under a US IDE and represents an important step toward realizing a future of Transcarotid therapies for neurovascular diseases.

Our vision is big and bold and we believe NITE and other Transcarotid procedures will solve difficult clinical problems in the treatment of complex neurovascular disorders and become an important part of the treatment paradigm in the future. Leapfrog innovations typically require an accumulation of clinical evidence and NITE-1 is likely the first of multiple future studies toward that end. While there are many milestones on the journey toward commercialization, this study should advance our understanding of the clinical benefits NITE can provide in the context of acute ischemic stroke. The era of Transcarotid therapies in neurovascular diseases has begun and Silk Road is leading the way. We look forward to sharing more details as 2021 progresses and in the years ahead.

To summarize, we are very pleased with the progress that we are making on all fronts as we continue to invest in our long-term growth. We are excited to announce that we are expanding our operations to include a facility in Minneapolis, which is an important talent pool for aspiring and experienced med tech professionals and a great complement to our continued and growing presence in Silicon Valley.

With that, I will now turn the call over to Lucas Buchanan, our Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer.

Lucas Buchanan -- Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer

Thank you, Erica. Revenue for the three months ended March 31st, 2021 was $22.1 million, a 16% increase from $18.9 million in the same period of the prior year. Growth was driven by increased adoption of TCAR across an expanded base of hospital accounts, trained physicians and active sales territories, partially offset by regional headwinds related to COVID-19.

Gross margin for the first quarter of 2021 was 75%, compared to 72% in the first quarter of the prior year, which was driven primarily due to lower fixed cost per unit from increased production volume in comparison with the prior period. As a reminder, gross margin in the three months ended March 31st, 2020 was impacted by unfavorable production variances as a result of temporarily idled manufacturing operations due to COVID-19.

Total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2021 were $26.7 million, a 17% increase from $22.8 million in the first quarter of 2020. R&D expenses for the first quarter of 2021 were $5.5 million, compared to $3.1 million in the first quarter of 2020. The increase was primarily driven by the timing of research and development initiatives.

Sales, general and administrative expenses for the first quarter of 2021 were $21.2 million, compared to $19.7 million in the first quarter of 2020. The increase was primarily attributable to expenses related to growth in our commercial team and personnel-related expenses. Expense growth was partially offset by the continued reduction in travel, trade show and other expenses due to COVID-19. We expect continued growth in operating expenses over the course of 2021 as we expand our commercial team and invest in a number of continued and new R&D initiatives.

Net loss for the first quarter was $10.7 million or a loss of $0.31 per share, as compared to a net loss of $9.5 million or a loss of $0.32 per share for the same period of the prior year. We ended the quarter with $136.1 million of cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments.

Regarding the accounting impact of the voluntary recall of certain lots of our ENROUTE stent, the obligation to customers was recorded as an accrued liability whereas the replacement product from our supplier is considered a receivable. As such, these effects were confined to our balance sheet as of year-end 2020 and first quarter end 2021.

Turning to our commercial strategies that Erica discussed earlier and on our fourth quarter 2020 call, we continue to be focused on driving the adoption of TCAR among our increasingly large trained physician base. In the first quarter and to put this through the pandemic lens, of the almost 3,000 procedures performed over three-fourth were performed by physicians trained in 2019 or prior. With our continued focus on driving adoption for less tenured physicians trained in late 2019 and in 2020, we expect to bear the fruits of these efforts throughout 2021 and beyond. We are also on track toward our goal of training at least 200 new physicians in 2021 to continue filling the pipeline.

With respect to our commercial organization, we are also on track toward our goal to end the year with 50 or more active sales territories, and we expect to have additional sales professionals hired and in training for further territory expansion in 2022. These collective efforts will aid in further driving the adoption curve, but also prepare us for the potential standard surgical risk indication.

Lastly, we are updating our guidance range for 2021. We now anticipate revenue to be in the range of $103 million and $108 million, representing growth of 37% to 44% over 2020 revenue of $75.2 million. As such, we are increasingly confident that our physician base will perform over 14,500 procedures this year. Our guidance assumes continued normalization in both the healthcare delivery system and patient behaviors, as well as continued progress with vaccinations.

At this point, I would like to turn the call back to Erica for closing comments.

Erica J. Rogers -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Thank you, Lucas. As we exit the first quarter, we remain confident that our fundamentals are intact and our business outlook remains strong. During the first quarter, we made headway on product, clinical, regulatory and commercialization fronts further expanding our leadership as the sole player innovating transcarotid therapies.

I'd like to conclude with the reminder that May is national stroke awareness month and the COVID-19 pandemic has served as an unfortunate reminder of the consequences for people, who are unable or unwilling to access and receive timely care for life-threatening carotid artery disease. We remain steadfast in our commitment to prevent and treat strokes and needless to say, we continue to see enormous potential for our technologies to transform stroke prevention and care pathways globally.

With that, we will now open it up to questions. Operator?

Questions and Answers:

Operator

[Operator Instructions] First question comes from the line of Robbie Marcus from JP Morgan. Your line is open.

Allan Reid -- JP Morgan -- Analyst

Hey, guys. This is actually Allan [Phonetic] on for Robbie. I had two quick questions, so the first one, I was just wondering if you could comment on kind of the trends that you saw over the course of the quarter, say like January to February to March and what you're really seeing so far in April? You've gotten some favorite [Phonetic] color from other peers outside of your space really highlighting the March and then April were significantly better. So I was wondering, if we should assume the same for you guys?

Erica J. Rogers -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Yes, I mean, as we talked about in the prepared remarks, certainly, we saw the effects of the pandemic heading into the first part of Q1, January and February deeply affected by hospitalizations, and just a whole cramping of the healthcare system and I'll let Lucas kind of comment on where we are today.

Lucas Buchanan -- Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer

Yes, Allan, we like to call kind of Thanksgiving through February Q5 of 2020 and we were anticipating a rebound in March and indeed that's played out and as Erica mentioned continued into April. March also had the most selling days, but it also had kind of the least COVID barriers around it relative to prior months.

Allan Reid -- JP Morgan -- Analyst

Got it. And then the second question is really on the NITE-1 trial. Is there any -- are there any deals you can kind of give us on like the endpoint amount of in terms of what you're looking for in terms of the time endpoint, and any details you can provide us on that would be very helpful? Thank you.

Erica J. Rogers -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Yes, sure. Obviously, there's some more details have become public as we move forward throughout the year. But I think let's calibrate in that, this is a feasibility study and so that means that the endpoint, really what we are aiming to accomplish is looking at the feasibility and safety of the use of transcarotid access and flow reversal in the presence of large vessel occlusion, and so it's really all about that, all about studying the feasibility and safety as we move forward in that study.

I think the point that I would like to emphasize here is that we're really excited about NITE-1, obviously, this is a major event and certainly moving the treatment of stroke forward in a significant way. But the headline really is that the transcarotid era has begun for neuro and that this is the first of what we hope to be many initiatives in this space.

Allan Reid -- JP Morgan -- Analyst

Sorry, one more quick follow-up, can you provide some color on like when you look at the existing devices on the markets today, just in a few words, what are like the shortcomings that you're really looking to address? We've obviously seen that TCAR makes the procedure much safer, compared to CEA. But we don't have the same kind of safety data, so to speak for stroke. So where exactly are the flaws that you're looking to address? Thank you very much.

Erica J. Rogers -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Yes, and I appreciate the question because like TCAR, we really looked at the fundamentals of carotid endarterectomy in the fundamentals of transfemoral CAS to understand why -- what were the shortcomings in those two procedures and what was potentially leading to poor patient outcomes in some cases. And so this is not a new endeavor for the company. We've been involved in looking at acute stroke and other neurovascular disorders for a long time. And we believe there is room for improvement in stroke, particularly around the things that we know lead to a poorer outcome even with complete recannibalization, things like first pass efficacy, we know matters, things like emboli in new territory, we know matters to outcomes in the end. So these are just a couple of examples of the things that we think are potentially interesting to address here.

Operator

Next question comes from the line of Rick Wise of Stifel.

Dylan Haas -- Stifel -- Analyst

Hey guys. This is actually Dylan Haas on for Rick. Thanks for taking the question. I just had a question related to standard risk, one on the filing and one on the potential pace of adoption. I'll just ask both upfront. First, on the filing, could you provide any sort of color on the feedback or discussions you've been having with FDA? And then just as we think about the potential pace of adoption post-approval, how are you guys thinking about how fast uptake could be among currently trained docs, ones that we speak to something already more aggressive about treating some of their patients, others more conservative and just kind of trying to understand how you guys think about how quickly they could flip the switch on that?

Erica J. Rogers -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Sure. Appreciate the question. With respect to the IDE -- sorry, with respect to the PMA supplement, we're just not in a position to give any more color at the moment. Obviously, we have filed the supplement, the clock is ticking and there really are no meaningful updates beyond that at this time. Other than we continue to prepare for the moment if and when approval comes our way and that preparation looks like getting the commercial team ready, the reimbursement strategy is outlined in the potential post-approval studies outlines. So that's the work that we're really engaging in now.

Dylan Haas -- Stifel -- Analyst

Got it. And then just as we think about guidance for the full-year, essentially, it seems like, kind of, raise the lower end by the -- be it relative to what we had in the first quarter and just trying to get any other added color on how you're thinking about the rest of the year, whether it's still being conservative about current trends and the extent that which they'll continue, any added color on that? Just kind of curious what you're thinking about guidance?

Lucas Buchanan -- Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer

Sure, Dylan, I can take that one. We're really kind of two months into the normalization process, so to say with March and April with January and February being really COVID affected. So, our guidance assumes continued normalization as we commented in the healthcare delivery system as a whole, as well as patient behaviors. But in hindsight, throughout the pandemic, those two aspects have been at times unpredictable and are variable. And so there is some continued acknowledgment of that, as well as typical things like seasonality in Q3 driven often by vacations among providers and patients and as we've -- we and others have said in the past, 2021 could be a year where vacations are a bigger effect and so that's all part of our thinking.

Dylan Haas -- Stifel -- Analyst

Cool. Thanks for taking the questions, guys.

Erica J. Rogers -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Thank you.

Next question comes from the line of Danielle Antalffy of SVB Leerink.

Danielle Antalffy -- SVB Leerink -- Analyst

Hey, good afternoon, everyone. Thanks so much for taking the question. Congrats on a solid quarter. Just a question for you, Erica around this what sounds like a sort of new or maybe more focused initiative to ramp efforts around your existing physician base. I think Lucas, you gave a data point around the number of procedures that your earlier trained physicians did in the quarter. But I guess I'm just curious to see how quickly -- so, with these new efforts, how we should see these physicians that were trained later in 2019 and early 2022, kind of, immediately pre-pandemic?

Now that the pandemic is starting to ease, should we expect to see a similar ramp that we saw with the earlier trained physicians from a utilization perspective? Or is there something different among this physician base that we need to be mindful of that might drive a little bit of a slower ramp? That's my first question. I have one follow-up.

Erica J. Rogers -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Okay. Thanks, Danielle. Hi, and thanks for the question. Yes, I think what's fair to say is there's nothing fundamentally different about these physicians in terms of their DNA, if you will. What is different is the moment in which they came into their TCAR experience. If you think about it, if you got trained and certified as a TCAR physician in latter 2019 or early 2020, really early and then all of a sudden, we're slammed with the pandemic and your overall procedural volumes go down, patients stop coming into your office, you stop being able to engage the way you would like to with your Silk Road sales professional team. All of those things really have an impact on how these physicians moved early in their adoption journey.

And so the focused effort, Danielle is really to make sure that those physicians are really on the same footing as all of the other physicians that we've trained thus far. And so we have a very focused effort, we've segmented these physicians by behavioral traits and where they are in their journey. We have targeted engagement tools, we have hands-on programs that are in-person, that are targeted for each of these segments. So I'm super pleased with the commercial team's approach to this, Danielle, and I think it ensures that these physicians can get off to the same journey as the physicians we've trained previously.

Danielle Antalffy -- SVB Leerink -- Analyst

Okay, got it. That makes sense. So this is more -- just a little bit more hand-holding come -- immediately coming out of the pandemic is maybe the right way to think about it than anything fundamentally different about the physician base we're talking about.

Erica J. Rogers -- President and Chief Executive Officer

I think that's a fair comment.

Danielle Antalffy -- SVB Leerink -- Analyst

Okay, cool. Okay.

Lucas Buchanan -- Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer

Yes. And Danielle, just perfect. My comments were intended to highlight that there is real upside, because again the growth, the procedures were really driven by the more experienced physicians. So as we get programs and tools and tactics to the less experienced, we hope that bears fruit.

Danielle Antalffy -- SVB Leerink -- Analyst

Yes, understood. Got it. And then I would be curious too, if you could comment. Erica, you've mentioned in the past, particularly during the pandemic, some centers actually shifting -- accelerating shifting to the less invasive shorter length of stay TCAR procedure versus CEA for the patients that they weren't doing albeit likely at a suppressed level of volumes overall?

And I'm curious to hear, if you've seen that trend sort of broaden as we continue to move through the pandemic and physicians are more focused now on getting more patients, just in general through procedures, not just carotid procedures, but procedures overall, they're juggling a lot. Hospitals are very cash crunch. What -- have you seen the benefit of a shift to a more predictable, less costly, safer procedure like TCAR and how sticky is that now as we come out on the other end of this. Thanks so much.

Erica J. Rogers -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Yes, really insightful question. I think you're right in your insights in that physicians and hospitals are keenly interested in getting back to the business of treating patients and I sort of alluded to that in my prepared remarks, which is physicians are back. And certainly, against that backdrop, efficiencies are an important part of the story and I think it's not only efficiencies for physicians and hospitals and all of the cost benefits and sort of productivity benefits that come along with that. But it's also reflected in how patients reemerge and reenter into the healthcare system.

So I think net overall, the efficiency of TCAR, the improved outcomes, the less-invasive nature of TCAR, all of that continues to serve as a tailwind for adoption and I think it's also safe to say that in the physician groups and individual physicians, who really took advantage of the efficiencies during COVID, I think we're pleased about the stickiness of that. We haven't seen a reversion, in other words, and why would you, right? I mean, after you've experienced the efficiency of TCAR, why would you go backwards and that's in fact what we're seeing.

Danielle Antalffy -- SVB Leerink -- Analyst

Thanks for that.

Operator

[Operator Instructions] Your next question comes from the line of Adam Maeder of Piper Sandler.

Adam Maeder -- Piper Sandler -- Analyst

Sure. Congrats on the solid start to the year, and thanks for taking the question. So first one from me is just on the procedure environment, it sounds like things got a lot better in March and April, but wanted to ask a little bit more color there. So what are you seeing from a hospital or ICU capacity side of things? What are you seeing from, kind of, a patient willingness standpoint? And then also the diagnostic funnel? I mean, are we kind of back to pre-COVID levels or 80% there and 90%? Just any color there would be helpful. And then I have a follow-up or two. Thanks so much.

Erica J. Rogers -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Yes, Adam, I can give you some high-level color on those three things, I mean, and try to impact them one at a time. So on hospital capacity, I think the good news is with vaccinations really increasing and greater than 70% of the Medicare population vaccinated. And again, that's our patient population, right? We are seeing hospital admissions go down for COVID and certainly deaths, thankfully going way down. So hospital capacity is less and less of an issue, as well as hospital resources. So it's not just about beds, it's also about people, and I think we're seeing more resources come up as the pandemic wanes here.

As it relates to patient behavior, this is the real interesting one. There are some real tailwinds to patient behavior, not the least of which is vaccination and elderly people just feeling better about being out and about in the world. I think also beneficial is the fact that they can enter the healthcare system, and have a family member beside them. You remember during COVID, Adam, you couldn't bring a family member to the hospital or even to your doctor visit. So things like that are really having a positive impact on getting patients back to the business of routine, maintenance and routine care. And certainly, many of them deferred that routine, maintenance and care for a long time and so I think that speaks to your final piece, which is the funnel and there are not only brand new diagnoses occurring, but also patients who deferred. They're kind of just routine follow-up exam on their carotid, who are now coming back into the system and in many cases, disease has progressed farther than it might otherwise have.

Adam Maeder -- Piper Sandler -- Analyst

Got it. That's helpful color. Thanks for that. And then I guess and maybe I missed this in the prepared remarks, but just any update on the international expansion initiatives that you're pursuing in China and Japan? Just wondering if there's an update on the progress and potential timelines there? Thanks.

Erica J. Rogers -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Yes, the update is we are making progress. So nothing specific to report nor timelines here on this call. But we're pleased with the progress that we made in the quarter.

Adam Maeder -- Piper Sandler -- Analyst

Okay. Got it. Sorry for the feedback there. And then one last one, Erica, if I can sneak it in. Just maybe curious about the carotid market more broadly and how you think that recovered? And if you think you took share in the first quarter sequentially, and if you did take share, if that came at the extent of CEA or transfemoral stenting? Thanks so much.

Lucas Buchanan -- Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer

Adam, I'm happy to take that one. We don't have all the data yet from 2020. But we do believe overall procedure volumes were down as a function of COVID-19 and obviously, our procedures were up and so we are kind of taking share at a national level, and we're looking at that at an individual physician level too, there's -- they are depressed as well, but we continue to grow the adoption curve. So the trends are positive in that environment and certainly, coming out of it. And CEA continues to be the gold standard and that's where we're focused on taking share from because that's where most of the procedures are.

Adam Maeder -- Piper Sandler -- Analyst

That's really helpful, Lucas. Thanks so much.

Lucas Buchanan -- Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer
