Evidence on

EluviaTM and RangerTM data: comprehensive and consistent evidence

Standing on evidence in SFA interventions

Eluvia and Ranger are defining a new standard in PAD endovascular intervention clinical evidence.

Enrolling over 10,000 patients globally in multiple head-to-head randomised controlled trials and real-world registries, Boston Scientific is giving physicians evidence-based tools to take the fight to PAD.

Both Ranger and Eluvia consistently demonstrate exceptional outcomes in complex lesions and patients in any trial at any time point in any geography​.

RCTs that offer the most robust evidence of ​any DET portfolio

We have made bold investments in no fewer than six rigorously designed randomised controlled trials (RCTs) to demonstrate the safety, efficacy, and superiority of our drug-eluting technologies vs standards of care and competitive products.  All six trials met their primary endpoint – robust evidence to give you confidence that you are making the very best choice for your patients. ​

Ranger DCB

Eluvia DES


Superior primary patency vs BMS

Superior TLR vs Zilver PTX

Real-world evidence

We don’t stop at RCTs – we continue to invest in multiple studies and registries designed to challenge our drug-eluting technologies in high-risk patients with complex lesions – cases that reflect real-world practice at its very most demanding. ​
