Boston Scientific Announces Schedule of Presentations at EuroPCR 2018

MARLBOROUGH, Mass., May 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) today announced the schedule of key presentations, including two late-breaking clinical trials, that will be featured at the annual EuroPCR Scientific Program, in Paris, on May 22-25.

During the late-breaking sessions on Wednesday, May 23, data from the RESPOND trial will provide two-year, 'real world' outcomes in patients treated with the LOTUS™ Transcatheter Aortic Valve System* as well as one-year results with the Agent™ Paclitaxel-Coated PTCA Balloon** from a multicenter study of two drug-coated balloons in patients with arterial in-stent restenosis.

Other presentations of interest include two sub-analyses from the REPRISE III randomized trial, also featuring the LOTUS Valve: multivariate predictors of early and late stroke after implantation and gender-related differences in clinical presentation and outcomes after TAVI. Data regarding the matched comparison of anticoagulation vs. antiplatelet therapy after LAA closure with the WATCHMAN™ Left Atrial Appendage Device will also be presented.

"We feel that this year's EuroPCR program will serve as a backdrop for engaging dialogue around data milestones that demonstrate the strength of our cardiovascular portfolio," said Professor Ian Meredith, M.D., executive vice president and global chief medical officer, Boston Scientific. "Additionally, we have been anticipating the outcomes from multiple studies being presented around our SYNERGY™ Bioabsorbable Polymer Stent, including further insight into assessing outcomes associated with patients presenting with complex disease states, high bleeding risk and shorter dual anti-platelet regimens."
