Boston Scientific Announces Positive Data from Lotus Transcatheter Aortic Valve Trial
Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) announces results from the REPRISE I feasibility trial, which evaluated the acute safety of the Lotus™ Aortic Valve System in patients with severe aortic valve disease. The Lotus Aortic Valve System is the first transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) device of its kind that is designed to minimize aortic regurgitation (leaking) and is both fully repositionable and retrievable prior to release. Data presented today at the annual EuroPCR Scientific Program in Paris demonstrated successful deployment of the valve in all patients with virtually no paravalvular regurgitation after valve placement or at discharge.
