Overview

Ultrasound Renal Denervation (uRDN) is an innovative therapy option for the treatment of uncontrolled hypertension. uRDN therapy is delivered in a minimally invasive procedure that may lower high blood pressure by treating overactive renal nerves with ultrasound energy.

 

This page provides an overview of uRDN technology and the latest evidence from its associated RADIANCE clinical program.

 

The PARADISETM System is Limited to Investigational Use Only in the United States. Approved for distribution in CE mark countries only.
