Symplicity Spyral renal denervation system

The Symplicity Spyral renal denervation (RDN) system is used during the Symplicity™ blood pressure procedure — the first catheter-based approach using radiofrequency (RF) energy that complements medications and lifestyle modifications to help reduce blood pressure.

Overview

Introducing a procedure to treat hypertension

During the Symplicity procedure, an interventionalist uses the Symplicity Spyral RDN system to supply precisely controlled and targeted RF energy to the renal nerves, safely disrupting the overactive sympathetic signaling between the kidneys and brain to help reduce blood pressure.1

25,000 patients around the globe have been treated with the Symplicity RDN system.2

Proven to deliver significant, safe, and sustained blood pressure reductions3–6

  • Multiple randomized, sham-controlled clinical trials
  • Real-world experience with more than 4,000 patients enrolled in the global clinical program*†3–5

System components

Symplicity Spyral™ multi-electrode renal denervation catheter

  • One catheter size fits vessels 3–8 mm1
  • 4 F catheter, compatible with 6 F guide catheter, 0.014" guidewire
  • Easy-to-use, plug-and-play design
  • Nonocclusive design allows for continuous blood flow to naturally protect the vessel wall7
Symplicity G3™ renal denervation RF generator

Symplicity G3™ renal denervation RF generator

  • Unique, real-time, and responsive algorithm automatically adjusts power by monitoring temperature and impedance for safe energy distribution7
  • Multi-electrode, helical design covers four quadrants simultaneously for a circumferential ablation1,7
  • Radiofrequency energy preferentially heats fat tissue where renal nerves are located and avoids nontarget structures8
  • Only the Symplicity Spyral RDN system allows for denervation throughout the renal anatomy, including the distal branches,1 where late arriving nerves are accessible and total nerve density is highest9,10
