The contract provides Boston Scientific the opportunity to supply life-saving and life-improving therapies to VA patients at risk of sudden cardiac death and bradycardia arrhythmias. Overall patient enrollment at VA Medical Centers has increased from 4.8 million in 2000 to 8 million in 2008 and is projected to continue growing.
