Boston Scientific Closes Cameron Health Acquisition
Date:6/8/2012

NATICK, Mass., June 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) has closed its acquisition of Cameron Health, Inc. of San Clemente, California, and, as a result, added to its product portfolio the world's first and only commercially available subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator, called the S-ICD® System.  The acquisition is the capstone of a nearly 10-year relationship between the two companies during which Boston Scientific invested in Cameron Health during its ground-breaking research and product commercialization efforts.  Developed by Cameron Health, the entire S-ICD System sits just below the skin.  This leaves the heart and blood vessels untouched, offering patients an alternative to conventional transvenous ICDs, which require thin, insulated wires – known as 'leads' – to be placed into the heart itself.  

"We are pleased to complete the acquisition of Cameron Health, furthering Boston Scientific's commitment to introducing innovation in the CRM space," said Hank Kucheman, chief executive officer at Boston Scientific. "Boston Scientific now provides physicians and their patients with an option to choose either the industry's thinnest, longest-lasting transvenous ICD or the world's first and only commercially available completely subcutaneous ICD."

"We believe that the combination of Cameron Health's breakthrough technology and Boston Scientific's already strong arrhythmia management product portfolio and commercial capabilities will help unlock the enormous potential of the S-ICD System," said Kevin Hykes, former chief executive officer of Cameron Health, who will continue to lead the S-ICD team at Boston Scientific.  "Equally exciting is the promise of next-generation subcutaneous technology that we expect will continue to expand the reach of ICD therapy to more patients."
