Boston Scientific Announces Schedule for EuroPcr 2007

Company to release broad range of clinical data on leading drug-eluting stent portfolio

NATICK, Mass., May 15, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Boston Scientific Corporation today announced the schedule of the Company's major events and press announcements at the annual Paris Course on Revascularization (EuroPCR), which will runs from May 22 to 25 in Barcelona, Spain.

"We will be announcing new data from several of our clinical trials and registries, adding to the knowledge base for treating coronary artery disease," said Paul LaViolette, Chief Operating Officer of Boston Scientific. "Pooled data from our ARRIVE registries will shed light on key predictors for stent thrombosis in real-world DES use. Additional data will provide insight into the performance of our market-leading TAXUS(R) paclitaxel-eluting stent systems as well as our new everolimus-based PROMUS(TM) (XIENCE(TM) V) stent system, reinforcing Boston Scientific's role as the only company offering two distinct drug-eluting stent platforms."

    Schedule of Events (all times are local Barcelona)

    Tuesday, May 22

      will present four-year results from the TAXUS VI trial in a late-

      breaking session.  This randomized, double-blind trial is designed to

      commercialized) formulation paclitaxel-eluting stent versus a bare metal

      stent control group.  Data will be presented on examined s

      including patients with long lesions, overlapping stents, and small

      vessels.  The Company plans to issue a press release at this time.

      the ARRIVE 1 registry and pooled one-year data from ARRIVE 1 & 2 will be

      presented by David Dobies, M.D., F.A.C.C., at 5:07 p.m. in a late-

      breaking session.  Data will focus on predictors of stent thrombosis in

      real-world patients treated with drug-eluting stents.  The Company plans

      to issue a press release at this time.

    * SYNTAX Trial update.  In a late-breaking trial session at 5:46 p.m.,

      Patrick Serruys, M.D., will present final enrollment numbers for SYNTAX,

      to compare 12-month MACCE rates between the company's TAXUS(R)

      Express2(TM) paclitaxel-eluting coronary stent system and coronary

      artery bypass graft (CABG) treatment.  The trial will study patients

      with three vessel disease and/or left main disease, a level of patient

      and lesion complexity not examined in prior DES studies.  SYNTAX

      recently completed enrollment of more than 3,000 patients at 85 sites in

      Europe and the United States.

    * SPIRIT Trial Results -- XIENCE(TM) V (PROMUS(TM)) Stent and TAXUS Stent.

      session.  In addition to a three-year update on the SPIRIT FIRST trial

      results, Dr. Stone will provide a meta-analysis of data from patients in

      SPIRIT II and SPIRIT III treated with the XIENCE V (PROMUS) Stent or the

      TAXUS Express2 Stent.  The SPIRIT family of trials is designed to

      evaluate the XIENCE V Everolimus-Eluting Coronary Stent System,
