Boston Scientific Completes Enrollment in Benign Stricture Study of WallFlex® Biliary RX Stent
Date:10/18/2011

NATICK, Mass., Oct. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) has completed enrollment in a clinical trial to evaluate its WallFlex® Biliary RX Fully Covered Stent for the treatment of benign bile duct strictures (narrowing or blockages).  This multi-center, prospective study enrolled 187 patients at 13 centers in 11 countries worldwide.  Lead Investigators in the study are Professor Jacques Deviere, M.D., Ph.D., of Hospital Erasme in Brussels, and Professor Guido Costamagna, M.D., of Policlinico A. Gemelli in Rome.

The study includes patients with bile duct strictures associated with post liver transplant anastomosis (connection of two structures), prior abdominal surgery such as cholecystectomy (gall bladder removal) and chronic pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas).  The WallFlex Biliary RX Fully Covered Stent will remain in patients five to 11 months depending on the nature of the stricture.  The trial will evaluate the removal of the stents from patients as well as the effectiveness of temporary stenting for long-term benign biliary stricture resolution.  Patients will be followed for five years after stent removal.  

"This is a key milestone for this important trial," said Professor Deviere.  "We look forward to the findings, which will determine the potential benefits of this stent as a less-invasive alternative to surgery in these types of patients and as an endoscopic treatment option that may require fewer ERCP(1) procedures than plastic stenting."

The WallFlex Biliary RX Stent is constructed of braided, Platinol™ (platinum-cored Nitinol) wire and features three key attributes:  radial force to help maintain duct patency and resist migration, flexibility to aid in conforming to tortuous anatomies, and full-length radiopacity to enhance stent visibility under fluoroscopy.
