ReCor Medical Announces Results from Landmark RADIANCE-HTN TRIO Study, Showing Clinically Significant Blood Pressure Reduction with the Paradise Ultrasound RDN System in Patients with Resistant Hypertension
PALO ALTO, Calif., May 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- ReCor Medical, Inc. ("ReCor"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Otsuka Medical Devices Co., Ltd., today presented the primary endpoint data from the randomized sham-controlled RADIANCE-HTN TRIO ("TRIO") study. In subjects with resistant hypertension, those treated with the Paradise Ultrasound Renal Denervation System had a greater drop in blood pressure than those who received a sham procedure. TRIO results were presented today at the American College of Cardiology meeting (https://accscientificsession.acc.org/) and published simultaneously in The Lancet.
The TRIO study evaluated the efficacy and safety of the Paradise Ultrasound Renal Denervation System in hypertensive patients who were all treated with a single pill containing 3 standardized anti-hypertension medications (a calcium-channel blocker, an angiotensin II receptor blocker, and a thiazide diuretic). After confirmation of inadequately controlled hypertension despite these medications, patients were then randomly assigned to treatment with the Paradise System or a sham procedure, with no changes to medications through two months.
The study met its primary efficacy endpoint at two months, demonstrating that patients who received Paradise renal denervation had a median reduction of 8.0 mmHg in daytime ambulatory systolic blood pressure, a 4.5 mmHg greater drop as compared with patients who had the sham procedure. Similar reductions were observed in 24-hour blood pressure, nighttime blood pressure, and office blood pressure. In addition, there were no significant differences in adverse events in the renal denervation and sham groups.
"RADIANCE-HTN TRIO is the first study of its kind – a sham-controlled study where all patients were placed on a guideline-recommended regimen of three antihypertensive medications and then confirmed to have hypertension resistant to this regimen," commented co-principal investigator Ajay J. Kirtane, MD, SM, Professor of Medicine at Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons. "These data confirm the blood pressure-lowering effect of the Paradise Ultrasound Renal Denervation System in patients with resistant hypertension."
