Date:4/25/2011

NATICK, Mass., April 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) today announced U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval and launch of the ION™ Paclitaxel-Eluting Platinum Chromium Coronary Stent System, the Company's third-generation drug-eluting stent technology.  The ION Stent System incorporates a unique platinum chromium (PtCr) alloy designed specifically for coronary stenting and intended to improve the acute performance of coronary stent implantation in the treatment of coronary artery disease.

The ION Stent System features an innovative PtCr alloy and new stent design to offer greater strength, enhanced deliverability and exceptional visibility.  The thin-strut stent is designed for improved conformability, minimal recoil, and uniform lesion coverage and drug distribution.  The advanced low-profile delivery system facilitates precise delivery of the stent across challenging lesions.

"I look forward to using the ION Stent in my daily practice, and I believe our patients will benefit from its improved acute performance," said Louis Cannon, M.D., FACC, FACA, Heart and Vascular Institute Program Director at Northern Michigan Regional Hospital in Petoskey, MI.  "The platinum chromium alloy represents a leap forward in materials technology and will address many of the limitations found in older stent alloys.  Exceptional stent deliverability offers cardiologists the potential to treat patients with difficult-to-reach lesions."  

"The Company has made significant investments in the platinum chromium alloy, and our success with the PtCr Stent Series in Europe and other international markets has confirmed that stent material really matters," said Hank Ku
