The key benefits
BAROSTIM THERAPY™ may offer resistant hypertension patients the ability to lower their cardiovascular risk by significantly lowering blood pressure.
BAROSTIM THERAPY™ may reduce blood pressure, helping the majority of patients reach their systolic blood pressure goal. 1* It is a neuromodulation therapy that triggers the body's main cardiovascular reflex to regulate blood pressure.
BAROSTIM THERAPY™ showed a significant reduction in blood pressure and heart rate in a randomized controlled trial with the first generation device and was corroborated in a 30-patient study with BAROSTIM NEO™. 1,2
Average responder reductions of 35 mmHg at month 12.1
Proportion of patients achieving SBP of ≤ 140 mmHg at month 6 and 12.1
* Over half (55%) of patients in the pivotal trial achieved goal SBP of ≤140 mmHg
