of patients worldwide – on an entirely new platform," said Hank Kucheman, Executive Vice President and Group President, Cardiology, Rhythm and Vascular for Boston Scientific.  "The PtCr Element System highlights our commitment to DES market leadership and continued innovation for physicians and their patients."  

"A key component of our growth strategy involves expanding our footprint in emerging markets like India, where we are making significant investments in sales, distribution and clinical infrastructure," said Ray Elliott, President and Chief Executive Officer of Boston Scientific.  "Our PtCr stent technology platform provides a significant advantage in this fast-growing market."

The PROMUS Element Stent is being evaluated in the PLATINUM clinical trial, which completed enrollment of 1,532 patients in September 2009 at more than 140 sites worldwide.  PLATINUM is a randomized, controlled, pivotal trial designed to support U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW) approval of the PROMUS Element Stent System.  In September 2010, data were presented on 30-day and nine-month clinical outcomes and nine-month quantitative coronary angiography (QCA) and intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) supporting the safety and efficacy of the PROMUS Element Stent.

The TAXUS Element Stent is being evaluated in the PERSEUS trial, which reported 12-month results in March 2009, demonstrating positive safety and efficacy outcomes in workhorse lesions for the TAXUS Element Stent System compared to the TAXUS® Express2® Stent System.  The PERSEUS clinical program compared the TAXUS Element Stent to prior-generation Boston Scientific stents in more than 1,600 patients in two parallel trials at 90 centers worldwide.

The Company received CE Mark for the PROMUS Element Everolimus-Eluting Stent System in October 2009 and for the TAXUS Element Pacl
