NATICK, Massachusetts, November 18, 2010 - Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) today announced
Australian and New Zealand regulatory approval and launch of its LATITUDE(R)
Patient Management system. The LATITUDE system enables physicians to remotely
monitor patients with implantable cardiac devices, gathering information on
both the device and a patient's heart health status. The system can also
detect clinical events between scheduled physician visits and send relevant
data directly to a patient's physician.

"Boston Scientific has enrolled more than 170,000 patients on
the LATITUDE system since its introduction in the U.S. in 2006, making it the
most rapidly adopted remote cardiac device monitoring system in the
industry," said Hank Kucheman, Executive Vice President and President of
Boston Scientific Cardiology, Rhythm and Vascular Group. "We expect continued
success as we introduce the demonstrated benefits of our LATITUDE system to
patients and physicians in Australia and New Zealand. Remote monitoring
technology provides a significant opportunity to further impact patient

LATITUDE is the only remote cardiac device monitoring system
to offer a wireless weight scale and blood pressure monitor, both of which
are recommended by the American College of Cardiology and American Heart
Association physician societies for the management of heart failure patients.

The Australian and New Zealand version of the LATITUDE system
is compatible with the Company's wireless COGNIS(R) cardiac resynchronization
therapy defibrillator (CRT-D) and TELIGEN(R) implantable cardioverter
defibrillator (ICD), the world's smallest and thinnest high-energy devices.

Boston Scientific is a worldwide developer, manufacturer and
marketer of medical devices whose products are used in a broad range of
interventional medical specialties. For more information, please visit:
