bust clinical program that spans 10 years of research," said Hank Kucheman, Chief Executive Officer of Boston Scientific.  "The AMI indication reinforces the safety and effectiveness of the ION and TAXUS Liberte paclitaxel-eluting stents in treating challenging patients and lesions in both clinical and real-world practice.  The inclusion of the ION Stent for this indication should be welcome news for physicians and patients.  This innovative platinum chromium stent has been very well received since its U.S. launch last year based on its exceptional visibility, radial strength and deliverability."

The Company's ION Stent System incorporates a unique platinum chromium (PtCr) alloy designed specifically for coronary stenting and intended to improve the acute performance of coronary stent implantation in the treatment of coronary artery disease.  For more information on the ION Stent System, visit: www.bostonscientific.com/interventional-cardiology/ion/ion-paclitaxel-eluting-platinum-chromium-coronary-stent-system.html.

The American Heart Association estimates that death by heart attack accounts for one out of every six deaths annually in the U.S.  There are more than 1.2 million new and recurrent cases of heart attack each year, with approximately 34 percent resulting in death.(1)
