Boston Scientific announces schedule of presentations at EuroPCR 2017

Pivotal Data From REPRISE III and EWOLUTION Among Four Late-breaking Clinical Trials to be Presented

May 10, 2017

Boston Scientific (NYSE: BSX) today announced the schedule of key data presentations, including four late-breaking clinical trials, that will be featured at the annual EuroPCR Scientific Program, in Paris, on May 16-19. The late-breaking clinical trials include the following:

  • Evaluation of 30-day safety and one-year efficacy outcomes from the REPRISE III trial, a prospective, randomised investigation of the LOTUS™  Valve System*, a transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) device against the CoreValve® TAVI System (Medtronic).
  • The LOTUS Valve RESPOND study providing one-year,‘real-world’ clinical and device performance outcomes data.
  • Three-year outcomes of the EVOLVE II trial assessing the  SYNERGY™ Bioabsorbable Polymer Drug-Eluting Stent System in patients with diabetes.
  • Data from the EWOLUTION registry, a prospective multicenter study of ‘real-world’ outcomes with the WATCHMAN™ Left Atrial Appendage Closure (LAAC) Device.

“This year’s EuroPCR congress will provide us the opportunity to share the performance of our LOTUS Valve platform in the REPRISE III trial,which is the first large, global, randomized head-to-head trial of two contemporary TAVI valves, as well as findings from the RESPOND and RESPOND Extension studies,” said Ian Meredith, M.D., executive vice president and global chief medical officer, Boston Scientific. “These data, along with findings from the European registry for the WATCHMAN device, further demonstrate  the value our minimally-invasive structural heart therapies bring to physicians in their pursuit of delivering the highest quality care to their patients.”
