Central Iliac Arteriovenous Anastomosis for Uncontrolled Hypertension: One-Year Results From the ROX CONTROL HTN Trial. (2017)

Abstract Creation of a central iliac arteriovenous anastomosis using a novel nitinol coupler device results in an immediate, significant reduction of blood pressure (BP). We present efficacy and safety findings at 12 months post-coupler insertion. This open-label, multicenter, prospective, randomized trial enrolled patients with a baseline office systolic BP ≥140 mm Hg and average daytime ambulatory BP ≥135/85 mm Hg. Subjects were randomly allocated to coupler implantation and continuing previous pharmacotherapy or to maintain previous treatment alone. At 12 months, 39 patients who had coupler therapy were included in the intention-to-treat analysis. Office-based systolic BP reduced by 25.1±23.3 mm Hg (baseline, 174±18 mm Hg; URL: http://www.clinicaltrials.gov. Unique identifier: NCT01642498.
