Boston Scientific has announced the close of its acquisition of Baylis Medical Company, a company that offers advanced transseptal access solutions as well as guidewires, sheaths and dilators used to support catheter-based left-heart procedures.

“The close of this acquisition allows Boston Scientific to integrate the Baylis platforms with our existing electrophysiology and structural heart offerings, further strengthening our position within the highest growth cardiology markets,” said Joe Fitzgerald, executive vice president and president, Cardiology, Boston Scientific. “We are now the only company to pair a comprehensive access portfolio with existing left-heart therapies such as left atrial appendage closure and atrial fibrillation ablation, providing physicians with a complete toolbox to treat patients with safety, efficacy and efficiency.”

The transaction consists of an upfront payment of US$1.75 billion, and is expected to be approximately one cent accretive to adjusted earnings per share in 2022 and increasingly accretive thereafter, the company said in a press release.
