ALTITUDE Clinical Data Show ICD Therapy Saves Lives Without Mortality Increase from Device Shock
Date:5/5/2011

NATICK, Mass. and SAN FRANCISCO, May 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) today announced results from an analysis of its ALTITUDE® Clinical Science program, which demonstrated that defibrillator therapy saves lives from lethal arrhythmias without an increase in mortality due to defibrillator shock.  Instead, the authors found that increased mortality risk associated with these shocks is not attributed to the defibrillator shock itself, but rather entirely related to the underlying medical condition leading to atrial and ventricular arrhythmias.

ALTITUDE analyzes outcomes data from patients monitored by the LATITUDE® Patient Management system.  Brian Powell, M.D., Assistant Professor of Medicine at the Mayo Clinic, presented results during a late-breaking trial session at the Heart Rhythm Society Scientific Sessions in San Francisco.

"The ALTITUDE Clinical Science program continues to provide groundbreaking data on survival after device implantation and has greatly advanced our understanding of the natural history of arrhythmias and how device programming influences patient outcomes," said Leslie Saxon, M.D., Chief of Cardiovascular Medicine at University of Southern California and chairperson of the ALTITUDE physician panel.  "What these data tell us is that patients who have atrial fibrillation or ventricular arrhythmias and receive shocks should be monitored and treated aggressively.  While shocks should only be delivered when necessary, it is encouraging to know that shock therapy from these devices does not increase mortality."

The ALTITUDE program enhances physician understanding of device therapy, outcomes and disease progression in a real-world setting for device patients followed by the LATITUDE® Patient Management system.  The system lets physicia
