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

       

At the recent Heart Rhythm Society's 33rd Annual Scientific Sessions in Boston, Cameron Health announced initial results from the international "Evaluation oF FactORs ImpacTing CLinical Outcome and Cost EffectiveneSS (EFFORTLESS) Subcutaneous Implantable Defibrillator Registry" study that showed the S-ICD System is performing appropriately in real-world circumstances and continues to demonstrate positive results in a study of 230 patients.  Cameron Health also announced at the conference that the S-ICD System met the primary safety and efficacy endpoints defined in their 330-patient IDE clinical study.  The patient population in the IDE study patient population closely mirrored real world populations with transvenous ICDs, demonstrating that the S-ICD System is an important new treatment option for a wide range of primary and secondary prevention patients.  In addition, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Circulatory System Devices Panel recommended approval of the S-ICD System in April of 2012.  FDA approval is expected in the first half of 2013.  The S-ICD System received CE Mark in 2009 and is commercially available in many countries in Europe, as well as New Zealand.  To date, more than 1,300 devices have been implanted in patients around the world.

In countries where it is approved, the S-ICD System establishes a new class of protection from sudden cardiac arrest that offers physicians more options in how to best treat their patients.  While it provides the same defibrillation protection of transvenous ICDs, the S-ICD System also preserves the patient's venous system, which may be advantageous to many patients. 

Transaction Details

The transaction follows Boston Scientific's exercise of its option to acquire Cameron Health announced on March 8, 2012. Under the terms of the agreement, Boston Scientific paid $150 million at closing.
