Exceptional outcomes.



A bold step forward.

Boston Scientific is committed to advancing science in the fight against PAD by boldly innovating with next-generation, drug-eluting technology. Backed by Level-1 Randomized Controlled Trials, our exceptional results put the power of choice in the hands of those who make it happen. Together, we can save more limbs and help more people walk without pain.

Delivers like nothing else.

Boston Scientific's Ranger Drug-Coated Balloon is built on the physician preferred Sterling™ 0.014”/0.018” balloon platform1 with the lowest tip entry profile of any SFA DCB2. For ease, durability and effectiveness, Ranger DCB delivers like nothing else.

Two Randomized Controlled DCB Trials.
Zero doubt.

Bold is being the first company to voluntarily evaluate our Drug-Coated Balloon against another DCB in a Level-1 Randomized Controlled Trial for comparative effectiveness. Ranger™ DCB demonstrated similar primary patency as IN.PACT with half the total drug dose3 at 2-Years. And consistently demonstrated high primary patency, near 90%, at 1-Year in the RANGER II SFA & COMPARE Trials4.


Clinical Highlights


Exceptional outcomes at 2-Years. No matter the lesion complexity. No matter the patient.5

In the RANGER II SFA RCT, Ranger demonstrated 84% K-M primary patency
at 2-Years.5
