SYNTAX Data Show Comparable Safety for Complex Patients Treated with TAXUS(R) Express2(TM) Stents and Bypass Surgery
Date:10/14/2008

New SYNTAX Score shows similar safety and efficacy outcomes for two thirds

of study's patients

NATICK, Mass. and WASHINGTON, Oct. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) today announced 12-month left main and three-vessel disease subset data from its landmark SYNTAX trial comparing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) using the TAXUS(R) Express2(TM) Paclitaxel-Eluting Coronary Stent System to contemporary coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. The results reinforced previously announced data demonstrating no overall statistically significant differences between PCI and CABG in rates of death or myocardial infarction (MI). The Company also presented an analysis of the data based on the SYNTAX Score, a new tool that seeks to provide guidance to physicians on optimal treatment options for this high-risk group of patients, showing similar safety and efficacy outcomes for two thirds of SYNTAX randomized patients. The Company made the announcements at the Cardiovascular Research Foundation's (CRF) annual Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) scientific symposium in Washington, D.C.

The SYNTAX trial is the first large scale randomized, controlled clinical trial comparing PCI using drug-eluting stents (DES) to CABG in patients with left main disease and three-vessel disease. These patient groups are typically treated with CABG and represent a population with far more complex anatomy and advanced disease than those studied in prior DES clinical trials. The goal of the trial is to expand the body of knowledge of PCI use and help inform physicians and patients on appropriate treatment options for the sickest patients.
