ROX Medical enrolls first UK patients in CONTROL-HTN hypertension trial at Eastbourne General Hospital
Date:3/18/2013

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ROX Medical announced enrollment of the first UK patients in the CONTROL-HTN international randomized controlled trial of the ROX FLOW procedure for the treatment of resistant hypertension (high blood pressure). The first patients were enrolled at Eastbourne General Hospital, East Sussex, UK by Doctors Neil Sulke and Stephan Furniss .

"This could be a very important new device treatment option for resistant hypertension patients," said Dr. Furniss. "We are anxious to enroll additional patients into this exciting trial."
