May 11, 2015 — Boston Scientific Corp. presented an overview of its continued business momentum and long-term growth strategies at a meeting with the investment community May 1.

In the cardiovascular space, Boston Scientific continues to advance its drug-eluting stent portfolio with the ongoing clinical program for the Synergy everolimus-eluting bioabsorbable polymer platinum chromium coronary stent; U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval is expected by year-end 2015. The company also announced the internal development of a fully resorbable stent platform.

New agreements with MedAxiom and TogetherMD are focused on improving clinical outcomes and lowering costs of delivering cardiovascular care through customized programs.

In the company's emerging structural heart business, next generations of the Watchman left atrial appendage closure platform and the Lotus Valve platform are planned to launch in Europe later this year.  

In peripheral intervention, the company is broadening its atherectomy and thrombectomy portfolio with its integration of the Bayer AG's Interventional business and a U.S. distribution agreement with C.R. Bard Inc. for the Lutonix drug coated balloon. Boston Scientific's Eluvia drug-eluting vascular stent system* is expected to launch in Europe in 2016 and enrollment continues in a novel clinical trial of its Vessix renal denervation system for patients with hypertension.

In cardiac rhythm management, the company focused on the soon-to-be-launched second-generation Emblem subcutaneous implantable defibrillator system (S-ICD). Boston Scientific presented plans for achieving magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) conditional-safe labeling across its pacemaker and ICD, S-ICD and cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator (CRT-D) platforms. Additionally, a leadless pacemaker development program will target the ability to pair with the Emblem S-ICD.

The company also plans to deliver next-generation ablation catheter platforms including an open irrigated version of IntellaTip MiFi and the IntellaNav family of navigation-enabled catheters. Both devices are expected to be built upon the foundation of technologies such as the EnduraLife battery technology and Rhythmia mapping system.
