Today, Boston Scientific shared its financial results for the second quarter of 2023.

Overall, we generated net sales of $3.599 billion during the second quarter of 2023, growing 11.6 percent on an organic basis[1] compared to the prior year period.

We also achieved net sales growth in each of our reportable segments, with 8.8 percent organic growth in MedSurg and 13.4 percent organic growth in Cardiovascular compared to the prior year period.

"We had another quarter of excellent results fueled by our innovative portfolio, strong commercial execution and the high performance of our global team,” said Mike Mahoney, chairman and chief executive officer, Boston Scientific. “We are excited about our long-term outlook and robust pipeline of unique innovations to address unmet patient needs.”

Additional highlights:

  • We also presented results from the FROZEN-AF IDE study of the POLARx™ Cryoablation System, which met the safety and effectiveness endpoints of the trial.
