For more than three decades, Boston Scientific has been a global leader in pioneering less invasive medical devices and procedures. The company's technology is used to diagnose and treat problems virtually anywhere in the human body through a small hole in the skin, as opposed to through a major surgical incision. By providing alternatives to open surgery, Boston Scientific products reduce procedural risk, trauma, cost and time, as well as the need for aftercare.
The company's products and technologies are used for enlarging narrowed blood vessels, to prevent heart attack and stroke, opening passages blocked by tumours or plaque to alleviate pain or suffering, conducting biopsies and ultrasounds, mapping electrical problems in the heart, placing filters to prevent blood clots from reaching the lungs, and treating brain aneurism.
