Boston Scientific Announces Clinical Data Supporting Safety and Efficacy of Platinum Chromium PROMUS Element™ Stent
Date:9/21/2010

NATICK, Mass., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) today announced data from its PLATINUM QCA study, which is designed to evaluate the Company's PROMUS Element™ Everolimus-Eluting Platinum Chromium Coronary Stent.  The results provided 30-day and nine-month clinical outcomes and nine-month quantitative coronary angiography (QCA) and intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) data supporting the safety and efficacy of the PROMUS Element Stent.  Analysis of the data was presented by Ian Meredith, M.B.B.S., Ph.D., Director of Cardiology at the Monash Medical Centre in Melbourne, Australia and Principal Investigator of the PLATINUM QCA study, at the Cardiovascular Research Foundation's annual Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics scientific symposium in Washington, D.C.

The PROMUS Element Stent features a novel platinum chromium (PtCr) alloy and innovative stent design, which combine to offer greater radial strength and flexibility while reducing stent recoil.  The stent geometry helps create consistent lesion coverage and drug distribution while improving deliverability, which is enhanced by an advanced catheter delivery system.  The higher density PtCr alloy provides superior visibility while permitting thinner struts compared to prior-generation stents (1).

"The nine-month angiographic and IVUS data from the PLATINUM QCA study are impressive and show the acute performance advantages of the platinum chromium PROMUS Element Stent," said Prof. Meredith.  "With the same drug and polymer loading and comparable release kinetics as the PROMUS® Stent, the PROMUS Element Stent achieved similar late loss and significantly better stent apposition.  These results give me great confidence in the transferability of the everolimus drug and its proven clinical outcomes, as well as the potential benefits of the new platinum
