High blood pressure, or hypertension, is sometimes called "the silent killer," but a new clinical trial will investigate if sound waves can affect it.
SIU Medicine researchers are enrolling patients in a study to see if ultrasound energy can be used to improve blood pressure and reduce the reliance on medication.
The study is designed to evaluate the ability of the Paradise Renal Denervation System to reduce blood pressure in patients with Stage 2 hypertension who are prescribed no more than two anti-hypertensive medications.
If you have high blood pressure, you may qualify for this study. For more information about the RADIANCE-II clinical trial, contact Emily Starkey at 217-545-7616 or click here.
