Ardian(R) Receives 2010 EuroPCR Innovation Award and Demonstrates Further Durability of Renal Denervation Treatment for Hypertension
Date:6/3/2010

PALO ALTO, Calif., June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Ardian announced today that it has received the 2010 EuroPCR Innovation Award for its Symplicity® Catheter System™, which may provide a new treatment option for millions of patients living with uncontrolled hypertension.  The treatment, called renal denervation (RDN), is the first catheter-based treatment for hypertension and has shown significant blood pressure reductions in early clinical evaluations.

The award, presented at the annual EuroPCR meeting in Paris, France last week, recognizes the one technology each year that shows the greatest potential to change the practice of interventional medicine.  Previous winners of this honor include Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implant (TAVI) technology and Bioabsorbable Stent systems.  

The honor came just days after the presentation of data in the late breaking trials session at the EuroPCR 2010 annual meeting, reporting sustained, long-term durability of the treatment.  These data reported on 117 uncontrolled hypertensive patients from the Symplicity HTN-1 pilot study, showing that those treated with the Symplicity Catheter System maintained a clinically significant reduction in blood pressure at the 18 month follow-up.

The data includes patients enrolled with persistently elevated blood pressure despite treatment with an average of five medications from centers in Europe, Australia and the US.  This latest presentation builds on those previously published in The Lancet (April 11, 2009) and presented at the American College of Cardiology and Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics meetings in 2009.
