Boston Scientific Announces European Approval of New Heart Failure Lead
Date:3/3/2008

ACUITY(R) Spiral lead offers flexibility for placement in small, medium and

large veins

NATICK, Mass., March 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) today announced CE Mark approval of its ACUITY(R) Spiral left ventricular lead for use with cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillators and cardiac resynchronization therapy pacemakers, both of which treat heart failure. The product features a spiral design and small lead tip profile (4 French) for placement of the lead even in difficult-to-access veins of varying sizes. A lead is an insulated wire that carries the heart signal to the implanted device and delivers energy from the device to the heart. In most cases, leads are passed into the heart through veins.

"The ability to place a left ventricular lead precisely where it will stimulate the heart most effectively is a key factor in providing patients with optimal cardiac resynchronization therapy," said Fred Colen, Executive Vice President, Operations and Technology, Boston Scientific Cardiac Rhythm Management. "ACUITY Spiral has the smallest lead tip profile in the industry and offers physicians the flexibility to place the lead in veins they may have avoided in the past."

The ACUITY Spiral lead is Boston Scientific's seventh U.S. or European regulatory approval in the past nine weeks. The ACUITY Spiral lead is pending approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and is not available for sale in the United States.
