Peripheral Interventions

Minimally invasive therapies to treat the top two causes of death--cardiovascular disease and cancer

Interventional technologies

Offering the broadest portfolio of therapies for peripheral artery disease, venous disease, and cancer uniquely positioned to help you:

  •  Improve clinical outcomes while reducing cost
  • Achieve operational efficiencies
  • Increase patient access to care

Bringing innovation in drug-eluting technologies, clot management, and interventional oncology.

  • Peripheral artery disease
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Critical limb ischemia
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Liver cancer
  • Kidney & lung tumors

Evidence-backed drug-eluting portfolio

Eluvia™ Drug-Eluting Stent and RangerTM Drug Coated Balloon are the first devices for peripheral artery disease (PAD) backed by level one randomized controlled trials (RCTs).

Boston Scientific offers two drug-eluting solutions for PAD, both backed by head-to-head trials for comparative effectiveness. Physicians choose the treatment that is right for the lesion and the patient.

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 patencyStatistically significant superior primary patency at 1-year over bare metal stents and Zilver™ PTX™
Fewer repeat proceduresStatistically significant reduction in reinterventions at 2 years vs. Zilver™ PTX™5
Shorter hospital stay19% reduction (>1 day) in average length of hospital stay vs. Zilver™ PTX™6

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

Close-up of the EKOS™ Endovascular System

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.


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

Close-up of the 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:

ArterialFor 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
VenousDesigned 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 accessAngioJet is designed to offer quick removal of thrombotic materials from the dialysis access conduit, potentially improving long-term patency.15
