Boston Scientific's Most Advanced Devices to Treat Heart Failure and Sudden Cardiac Death Now Available in Japan
Date:11/9/2009

NATICK, Mass., Nov. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) today announced the launch of its COGNIS® cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator (CRT-D) and TELIGEN® implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) in Japan. These devices were approved by the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW) in August and received reimbursement approval in September. COGNIS and TELIGEN are the result of a multi-year research and development effort to provide physicians enhanced clinical options for their patients.

"Boston Scientific is committed to providing Japanese physicians and their patients the most innovative products and therapies," said David McFaul, Boston Scientific Senior Vice President, International. "COGNIS and TELIGEN are now part of Boston Scientific's full product portfolio in Japan, which also includes the Company's newest and most advanced pacemaker -- the ALTRUA(TM) 60."

"The significantly reduced size of these devices has been well received by physicians in the U.S. and Europe, resulting in more than 75,000 implants in less than two years," said Ken Stein, M.D., Associate Chief Medical Officer, Boston Scientific CRM. "In the past, physicians often had to make trade-offs among device size, battery longevity and features when prescribing a high-energy device. These devices eliminate those trade-offs without compromising therapy options."

The COGNIS CRT-D and TELIGEN ICD are the world's smallest and thinnest high-energy devices at 32.5 cc and 31.5 cc respectively, while less than 10 mm thick. Both devices offer features based on substantial engineering advances, including extended battery longevity, self-correcting software and improved programming technology.

Both devices offer a redundant hardware system called SafetyCore(TM), which
