Hypertension is prevalent worldwide. Despite continual efforts to improve its management, blood pressure control rates have declined substantially over the past two decades. Untreated, hypertension can lead to many significant health problems — and many people don’t even realize they have it.
1.28 billion adults
worldwide have hypertension.*

A significant number of treated hypertension patients have resistant and/or uncontrolled hypertension1

Left undetected or untreated over time, hypertension can lead to:
• Ischemic heart disease, including myocardial infarction
• Heart failure
• Chronic renal failure
• Cognitive decline
Hypertension is associated with five years reduced life expectancy.1

When medication isn’t enough.
Nonadherence increases with increasing drug prescriptions1
Patients with resistant hypertension struggle to reduce blood pressure due to poor adherence to medication, side effects, and lack of response to medications.
Take on hypertension with a new tool in your arsenal.
Ultrasound renal denervation (RDN) can be used as part of a multi-modal approach to treat patients resistant to hypertension.
Discover the Paradise® Ultrasound Renal Denervation (RDN) system — the first-ever minimally invasive procedure to treat hypertension with ultrasound.
