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

ide important additional information for doctors as they evaluate treatment options for complex coronary patients," said Keith Dawkins, M.D., Associate Chief Medical Officer of Boston Scientific. "The comparable safety and efficacy outcomes with PCI and CABG in patients with left main disease in this trial indicate PCI is a good treatment alternative for this patient population. Physicians will also be able to consider the SYNTAX Score analysis, demonstrating no difference in safety and efficacy outcomes between PCI and CABG in approximately two-thirds of the SYNTAX patient population, when assessing the appropriate treatment for their patients."

The SYNTAX Score is breaking new ground by scientifically defining a new measure for anatomical complexity that seeks to provide guidance to physicians on optimal treatment options for this high-risk group of patients. The SYNTAX Score characterizes coronary anatomy based on lesion frequency, complexity and location, relying on data from the SYNTAX trial, and assigns a score to each patient. The analysis of the raw SYNTAX Score data presented today demonstrated that PCI and CABG patients whose scores fell into the lower or intermediate terciles of complexity had similar rates of MACCE (Major Adverse Cardiovascular or Cerebrovascular Event rate, including all-cause death, stroke, MI and repeat revascularization) at 12 months. For patients whose SYNTAX Score fell into the upper tercile -- those with the greatest lesion complexity -- there was a significant increase in MACCE for PCI patients compared with CABG patients.

The 12-month subset results for patients with left main disease reported comparable rates of overall MACCE for the CABG group and the PCI group (13.6 percent for CABG versus 15.8 percent for PCI, p=0.44), as well as similar overall safety outcomes (death, stroke, MI) for the two groups (9.1 percent for CABG versus 7.0 percent for PCI, p=0.29). As expected, the rate of revascularization was signifi
