Boston Scientific CRE™ Wireguided Balloon Dilator CE Marked for Expanded Indication
Date:11/9/2011

#160;It reduces the need for mechanical lithotripsy and simplifies removal of larger stones or stone fragments."

"The new indication provides physicians an alternative method for treating patients requiring difficult stone extraction in the biliary duct, and demonstrates Boston Scientific's ongoing commitment to innovation and clinical science to expand endoscopic therapies available to physicians and patients," said David Pierce, President of Boston Scientific's Endoscopy Division.  "The CRE Balloon has been a key offering in our Endoscopy product portfolio for more than 14 years and has helped solidify our market leadership."

The presence of stones in the common bile duct affects more than 61 million people worldwide, resulting in 800,000 therapeutic ERCP procedures each year.  If not treated, the condition can cause biliary obstruction, infection, jaundice and liver damage.

In the U.S., the CRE Wireguided Balloon is not cleared for dilation of the Sphincter of Oddi following sphincterotomy.
