05:23 EDTBSXBoston Scientific reports favorable results in MADIT-CRT study
Boston Scientific reported favorable results in studies related to cardiac resynchronization therapy, or CRT, platinum chromium stent platforms and transcatheter aortic valve replacement, or TAVR. Boston Scientific announced significant findings from the continued analysis of the landmark MADIT-CRT study, demonstrating a significant and sustained survival benefit in the indicated population. The long-term results demonstrated a 41% relative reduction in the risk of death in patients who received a Boston Scientific defibrillator with CRT compared to patients who received a defibrillator alone. In addition to the mortality benefit, the results demonstrate that these patients experienced a 62% relative reduction in the risk of experiencing a first heart failure event when compared to patients who didn't receive CRT therapy. Boston Scientific released new data that continue to reinforce the advantages of platinum chromium stents. The trial compared the safety and effectiveness of the Boston Scientific Platinum Chromium Everolimus-Eluting Stent System, or PtCr EES, to the Abbott Laboratories Cobalt Chromium Everolimus-Eluting Stent System, or CoCr EES. The results show low event rates out to four years with PtCr EES confirming excellent long-term performance. At four years, the PtCr EES also continued to demonstrate advantages over the CoCr EES. The Boston Scientific Lotus Valve System advanced TAVR technology continued to demonstrate impressive performance at three months.
