NATICK, Mass., July 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Boston Scientific Corporation's (NYSE: BSX) Board of Directors has approved a new program authorizing the repurchase of up to $1.0 billion of its common stock and re-approving the approximately 37 million shares remaining under an existing share repurchase program.
