RADIANCE-HTN SOLO is a multicenter, international, blinded, randomised, sham-controlled trial to evaluate use of the Paradise Renal Denervation System to reduce ambulatory blood pressure in patients with hypertension in the absence of antihypertensive medications.


The Paradise Renal Denervation System lowered blood pressure in patients with hypertension who were randomized and followed for 2 months off medications, demonstrating:

  • Greater reduction in daytime ambulatory systolic BP than a sham procedure.
  • Consistent reductions in 24-hour ambulatory, office, and home BP.
  • Reduction of ≥5 mmHg observed in 66% of treated patients.
  • No major adverse events within 30 days of the procedure.


  • Trial was conducted at 21 centers in the USA and 18 in Europe.
  • 146 patients were randomized (1:1) to renal denervation or sham procedure (renal angiography)
    after a 4 week antihypertensive medication washout.
  • Primary Efficacy Endpoint: Change in Daytime Ambulatory Systolic BP at 2 Months.

Primary Endpoint:  Change in Daytime Ambulatory Systolic BP at 2 Months

*Between group difference adjusted for baseline blood pressure
**The per-protocol population omitted patients who started medications prior to end-point collection
