Boston Scientific Launches PROMUS® Element™ and TAXUS® Element™ Stent Systems in India
Date:2/17/2011

NATICK, Mass., Feb. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) today announced its launch of the PROMUS® Element™ Everolimus-Eluting Coronary Stent System and TAXUS® Element™ Paclitaxel-Eluting Coronary Stent System in India.  Both Element Systems incorporate the same novel platinum chromium (PtCr) alloy, innovative stent design and advanced catheter delivery system, and represent the Company's third-generation drug-eluting stent (DES) technology.

India is one of the fastest-growing DES markets in the world, with the number of coronary drug-eluting stents implanted annually estimated at more than 150,000.  In 2010, the Company received approval from the Drugs Controller General of India to market the Element Systems.  

"The new platinum chromium alloy and stent design of the PtCr Element Stent series represent significant innovations in DES technology," said Ashok Seth, M.D., Fortis Escort Heart Institute, New Delhi.  "I believe the Element platform offers performance improvements that could simplify procedures and allow treatment of a broader range of patients."

The PtCr Element Stent series features a novel platinum chromium alloy and innovative stent design, which combine to offer greater radial strength, flexibility and visibility while reducing stent recoil.  The stent geometry helps create consistent lesion coverage and drug distribution while improving deliverability, which is enhanced by an advanced catheter delivery system.  The higher density platinum chromium alloy provides exceptional visibility while enabling the use of thinner struts compared to prior-generation stents(1) without compromising strength.

"The PROMUS and TAXUS Element Stent Systems give physicians in India a choice of two proven drug and polymer combinations – used in millions
