Boston Scientific Welcomes Launch of Syntax Score Website
Date:5/18/2009

Online tools will help physicians determine treatment strategies

NATICK, Mass. and BARCELONA, Spain, May 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) today welcomed the launch of a new website, www.syntaxscore.com, dedicated to the understanding and use of the SYNTAX Score(TM), a novel angiographic tool used to measure the complexity of coronary artery disease. The Company made the announcement at the annual EuroPCR Scientific Program in Barcelona.

The SYNTAX Score was developed in connection with the SYNTAX trial, the first randomized, controlled clinical trial to compare percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) using the TAXUS(R) Express2(R) Paclitaxel-Eluting Coronary Stent System to coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery in patients with left main disease and/or significant narrowing of all three coronary arteries (three-vessel disease). These complex patients are traditionally treated with CABG and have been excluded from most prior drug-eluting stent clinical trials. The SYNTAX trial provides important data related to the treatment of these complex patients and should help physicians make more informed treatment decisions.

The SYNTAX Score was used in the trial to characterize coronary anatomy based on nine anatomic criteria, including lesion frequency, complexity and location; it assigned a score to each patient. Higher SYNTAX Scores indicate patients with more complex disease and increased treatment challenges.

The new website allows cardiologists and cardiac surgeons to calculate a patient's SYNTAX Score and create a description of anatomical complexity of the coronary vasculature that can be used in combination with a physician's broader clinical judgment to aid in determining the best revascu
