    Boston Scientific to Acquire Cameron Health, Inc.
    NATICK, Massachusetts, Mar 13, 2012 (PR Newswire Europe via COMTEX) --
    NATICK, Massachusetts, March 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

    Company gains first and only commercially available subcutaneous ICD technology to offer lifesaving therapy to patients at risk of sudden cardiac arrest
    Boston Scientific Corporation announces the exercise of its option to acquire Cameron Health, Inc., a privately held company based in San Clemente, California. Cameron Health has developed the world's first and only commercially available subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator -the S-ICD(R)System. Unlike conventional implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs), which require thin, insulated wires (leads)to pass through the venous system and into the heart, the entire S-ICD System sits just below the skin and leaves the heart and blood vessels untouched. This one-of-a-kind technology has the potential to expand the reach of ICD therapy, offering physicians and appropriate patients a new alternative to traditional ICDs, while strengthening Boston Scientific's arrhythmia management portfolio.
