Boston Scientific Platinum Chromium ION™ Stent Demonstrates Positive Outcomes in PERSEUS Clinical Program
Date:11/8/2011

NATICK, Mass. and SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) reports positive long-term data from the PERSEUS clinical program, which demonstrated favorable two-year safety and effectiveness outcomes for the ION™ (TAXUS Element) Paclitaxel-Eluting Platinum Chromium Stent System versus prior-generation paclitaxel-eluting stents.  Results were presented today by PERSEUS clinical program Principal Investigators Louis Cannon, M.D., of the Cardiac and Vascular Research Center of Northern Michigan in Petoskey, Michigan, and Dean Kereiakes, M.D., Medical Director at The Christ Hospital Heart and Vascular Center and The Lindner Research Center in Cincinnati, at the Cardiovascular Research Foundation's annual Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) scientific symposium in San Francisco.

"The PERSEUS trials build on the extensive TAXUS clinical program and extend the consistent outcomes seen with prior-generation paclitaxel stents to the platinum chromium ION Stent platform," said Dr. Cannon.  "The excellent clinical results at two years confirm the ION Stent's safety and efficacy in workhorse lesions and suggest superior performance relative to bare-metal stents in small vessels.  In addition, I have found the new alloy and stent design to offer increased flexibility, visibility and deliverability."

PERSEUS Workhorse and Small Vessel TrialsDr. Cannon presented results from the prospective, randomized pivotal PERSEUS Workhorse trial, which demonstrated comparable safety and efficacy at two years for the ION Stent compared to the Boston Scientific TAXUS® Express® Stent in more than 1,200 patients with de novo workhorse lesions.  Both stents showed similar rates of composite measures for target lesion failure (TLF) and major adverse cardiac events (MACE).  Ind
