TAXUS(R) Liberte(R) Stent Continues to Demonstrate Significant Improvements Over TAXUS(R) Express(R) Stent in Small Vessels and Long Lesions
Date:9/22/2009

NATICK, Mass. and SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) today announced comprehensive data from the TAXUS ATLAS clinical program, a series of global, prospective, single-arm trials evaluating the TAXUS((R)) Liberte((R)) Paclitaxel-Eluting Stent System in a variety of lesions and patient groups. Three-year results from the TAXUS ATLAS Small Vessel and Long Lesion Trials continue to show significant advantages for the newer TAXUS Liberte Stent when compared to the first-generation TAXUS((R)) Express((R)) Stent. The data were presented at the 21(st) annual Cardiovascular Research Foundation's (CRF) annual Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) scientific symposium in San Francisco.

The TAXUS ATLAS Small Vessel Trial was designed to evaluate the long-term safety and efficacy of the 2.25 mm diameter TAXUS((R)) Liberte((R))( )Atom((TM)) Stent in small coronary vessels. The TAXUS ATLAS Long Lesion Trial was designed to assess the long-term safety and efficacy of the TAXUS((R)) Liberte((R)) Long 38 mm Stent in patients with long coronary lesions. Boston Scientific remains the only company to offer both 2.25 mm diameter and 38 mm length drug-eluting coronary stents in the U.S.

Three-year results from the TAXUS ATLAS Small Vessel Trial demonstrated a statistically significant reduction in the rate of Target Lesion Revascularization (TLR) in small vessels treated with the TAXUS Liberte Atom Stent as compared to the TAXUS Express Atom Stent (10.0% vs. 22.1%, p=0.008), representing a 55 percent relative risk reduction. Additionally, the three-year MACE rate for the TAXUS Liberte Atom Stent was 19.5 percent as compared to 32.4 percent for the TAXUS Express Atom Stent (p=0.03), a relative reduction of 40 percent.
