With a growing body of clinical evidence demonstrating exceptional outcomes, Boston Scientific is advancing science in the fight against peripheral artery disease.


 

Eluvia™ drug-eluting vascular stent system

A new standard of care in SFA stenting

No SFA stent has performed better at 2-Years. No matter the lesion complexity. No matter the patient.1,2


Superior patency Statistically significant superior primary patency at 1-year over bare metal stents and Zilver™ PTX™
Fewer repeat procedures Statistically significant reduction in reinterventions at 2 years vs. Zilver™ PTX™5
Shorter hospital stay 19% reduction (>1 day) in average length of hospital stay vs. Zilver™ PTX™6

CMS awarded New Technology Add-on Payment (NTAP) to provide additional reimbursement for eligible in-patient Eluvia procedures.

Ranger™ drug-coated balloon catheter

Exceptional Outcomes. Effortless Deliverability.

Backed by two randomized controlled trials, Ranger DCB consistently demonstrated high primary patency and low reintervention rates.7

The most studied and preferred tools for clot management

Boston Scientific is committed to delivering a full suite of interventional tools to target thrombus.

EKOS™ endovascular system

Ultrasound assisted catheter-directed thrombolysis

Dissolves clot with less lytic and short treatment times.

EKOS is clinically proven to be safe and reliable with long-term outcomes. No other device used to treat pulmonary embolism has been studied as much as EKOS. See the evidence.

~90%

Less thrombolytic dose than standard systemic treatment11,12

15 minute procedure that is easy to perform

Clinical trials published and >75,000 PE patients treated*

* Data on file

Evidence-based medicine, now backed by updated reimbursement. Reimbursement for the procedure codes applicable to the EKOS system increased October 1, 2020. To help your institution benefit from these changes, access the EKOS coding guide.


AngioJet™ peripheral thrombectomy system

Rapidly removes thrombus via mechanical thrombectomy with optional lytic delivery.

AngioJet is the most studied, most versatile, market-leading thrombectomy platform designed to enable single-session removal of thrombus. The highly effective combination of optional thrombolytic therapy with mechanical thrombectomy may help reduce ICU and total hospital stays due to:

  • Faster restoration of flow
  • Less lytic
  • Shorter treatment time13

AngioJet treats the full range of thrombus:

Arterial For acute limb ischemia, AngioJet quickly restores flow and may reduce the need for prolonged lytic therapy and procedure time, leading to a potential cost benefit.14
Venous Designed specifically to treat deep vein thrombosis, the AngioJet™ ZelanteDVT™ Thrombectomy Catheter paired with ClotHunter™, can increase single-session success and avoid the need for re-intervention.
AV access AngioJet is designed to offer quick removal of thrombotic materials from the dialysis access conduit, potentially improving long-term patency.15
