Daily medications not lowering
your Blood Pressure enough?

See if the CONTROL HTN-2 Study is right for you

Have you hit a high blood pressure plateau? If you’re taking multiple medications but can’t seem to lower your blood pressure enough, you may have uncontrolled hypertension - a condition affecting 100 million people worldwide. When high blood pressure can’t be controlled, it increases your risk of serious health problems such as stroke, heart disease, and kidney failure.1

If you’re struggling to lower your blood pressure despite taking multiple medications, you may be a candidate for the CONTROL HTN-2 Clinical Study. The study is evaluating the ROX Coupler, an investigational implanted device designed to lower blood pressure through a minimally-invasive procedure.

About the CONTROL HTN-2 Study

What is the ROX Coupler therapy?

The ROX Coupler is an investigational implant designed to lower blood pressure through a minimally-invasive procedure. The ROX Coupler is about the size of a dime, and is used to create a small passageway between an artery and a vein in your pelvis (hip area). This passageway allows a small amount of blood to flow from the artery to the vein. Since the blood in the artery is at a higher pressure than the blood in the vein, most patients will experience an immediate reduction in blood pressure.2

The ROX procedure is performed under local anesthesia, using two needle-like punctures in the upper thigh to place the ROX coupler using small, flexible catheters. Although placement of the ROX Coupler is intended to be permanent, the procedure can be reversed if desired through a similar, catheter-based procedure.

What is the CONTROL HTN-2 Study?

Right now, doctors at select medical centers in the US and Europe are conducting a new research study to evaluate the ROX Coupler device and its ability to lower blood pressure (the CONTROL HTN-2 Study). If you’ve been unable to lower your blood pressure despite taking multiple medications, the CONTROL HTN-2 Study may be right for you.

Why Participate?

When blood pressure can’t be controlled it increases your risk of serious health problems such as stroke, heart disease and kidney failure. If you’re struggling to lower your blood pressure despite taking multiple medications, you may be a candidate for the CONTROL HTN-2 Clinical Study. The study is evaluating ROX Coupler therapy, an investigational device designed to lower blood pressure through a one-time, minimally-invasive procedure.

If you qualify and choose to join the CONTROL HTN-2 Study, you will receive:

  • Evaluations and monitoring of your blood pressure condition from a team of specialists
  • Study-related care at no cost
  • Compensation for your travel to attend regular visits at your study doctor’s office

Before you decide to participate, your local study center will review with you the potential risks and benefits of study participation.
