Court Rejects Two Medtronic Patents
Date:8/29/2008

Boston Scientific obligation reduced from $250 to $19 million

NATICK, Mass., Aug. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) today announced that the U.S. District Court of Marshall, Texas found two patents of Medtronic, Inc. (NYSE: MDT) unenforceable for inequitable conduct during the prosecution of the patents before the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

A jury had previously found that certain Boston Scientific balloon catheters and stent delivery systems infringed three Medtronic patents and that the patents were valid. The jury awarded damages of $250 million. As a result of today's decision, the damages are reduced to approximately $19 million. Following a prior decision by the Court, Medtronic and Boston Scientific had already agreed to reduce the jury verdict to approximately $186 million.

Boston Scientific plans to appeal the remaining $19 million damage award to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C. The Company is confident it will prevail on appeal.

Boston Scientific is a worldwide developer, manufacturer and marketer of medical devices whose products are used in a broad range of interventional medical specialties. For more information, please visit: http://www.bostonscientific.com.
