Boston Scientific is the world’s largest medical device company dedicated to less-invasive medicine. Boston Scientific believes that each innovative product is the outcome of strong research and development, intelligent acquisitions, close collaboration with clinicians, outstanding operational and quality processes and a powerful global distribution channel. As a market leader in less-invasive medical devices delivering more than 15,000 products to clinicians in over 45 countries, Boston Scientific works every day to build the knowledge, processes and infrastructure it needs to identify opportunities, address new disease areas and support clinicians in advancing the practice of health care around the world.
Bold innovations that offer customers the latest in medical device technology can make a dramatic impact on patient care. One example is the Endovations™ Single-Use Endoscopy System, an integrated digital system that may offer clinicians a single-use endoscope and the potential for procedural efficiencies.
We are awaiting FDA approval of the Carotid WALLSTENT® Monorail® Endoprosthesis, used in combination with the FilterWire EX® and FilterWire EZ™ Embolic Protection Systems, for carotid stenting and embolic protection. This combination of acquired technology with internal research and development is an excellent example of our hybrid innovation strategy in action, and is the market-leading carotid stenting and embolic protection system in Europe.
