adults with hypertension worldwide1
of hypertension patients do not have their blood pressure under control1
of hypertension patients become non-adherent to their medication within one year2
Hypertension is a leading preventable cause of heart attack, stroke, and death.3 But medication and lifestyle modifications are not always enough to control it.
Symplicity Spyral Renal Denervation Procedure - (03:22)
Seen how the Symplicity Spyral renal denervation procedure works to help treat hypertension.
More information (see more) Less information (see less)
The Symplicity Spyral™ renal denervation system supplies precisely controlled and targeted radiofrequency (RF) energy to the renal nerves, safely disrupting the overactive sympathetic signaling between the kidneys and brain to reduce blood pressure.7
The Symplicity blood pressure procedure is proven to achieve safe and clinically meaningful blood pressure reduction in the presence and absence of medications in multiple clinical trials and a real-world patient registry.4-6,8
Professor Roland Schmieder, M.D., presents key findings on cardiovascular risk reduction after the Symplicity blood pressure procedure.
