Research Report On September 3, 2013, Medtronic Inc. (Medtronic) announced the final three-year results from Symplicity HTN-1, the first and longest running clinical study investigating the safety and efficacy of renal denervation. According to the Company, 88 patients were available for the 36 month evaluation following the treatment with the Symplicity(TM) renal denervation system. Medtronic reported that the patients demonstrated sustained reductions in blood pressure year-over-year and approximately 50% of the patients achieved goal of a systolic blood pressure <140 mm Hg despite having a mean systolic blood pressure of 169.8 mm Hg pre-denervation. Professor Henry Krum, Principal Investigator of Symplicity HTN-1 and Chair of Medical Therapeutics, Professor of Medicine and Director of the Monash Centre of Cardiovascular Research and Education in Therapeutics, Melbourne, Australia said, "Achieving goal of below 140 mm Hg in about half of these patients is impressive considering that these patients had very high baseline blood pressures despite being on multiple pharmaceutical agents."
