ROX Medical announced the first patient enrollment in the CONTROL-HTN international randomized controlled trial of the ROX FLOW procedure for the treatment of resistant hypertension (high blood pressure). The first patient was enrolled at the Universitair Ziekenhuis Brussel (University Hospital of Brussels) Brussels, Belgium by Professor Danny Schoors and Dr Sofie Brouwers.
Dr. Sofie Brouwers from UZ Brussel, Belgium was selected to present at the prestigious Austin Doyle Award Session during the 2012 International Symposium of Hypertension (ISH) in Sydney, Australia. Dr. Brouwers presented the 12-month data from the ROX Medical US IDE and German Multicenter study on patients with concomitant COPD and Hypertension. The resulting data explored the associated blood pressure reduction after the creation of an iliofemoral fistula. The data showed that the creation of a calibrated iliofemoral AVF significantly reduced blood pressure after 3 and 6 months and that the reduction was maintained at 12 months.
ROX Medical, Inc. today announced the first clinical use of the ROX COUPLERTM at the Universitair Ziekenhuis Brussel (University Hospital of Brussels) to treat resistant hypertension. “We are pleased to have performed the first ever ROX FLOW Procedure for this new approach to hypertension, the acute impact on the patients’ blood pressure was greater than we expected and we look forward to understanding how much these patients benefit from the treatment over time.”
