Rheos Hypertension Pivotal Trial

Has anyone heard of this? Apparently it is an implant under the collarbone. You have to be on 3 or medications and a BP of 160/90 to qualify.

Re: Rheos Hypertension Pivotal Trial

I signed up for info regarding this but I was initially rejected because of my type of HBP. Then they called me when there was an opening. I was nervous the more I learned about it but apparently it does work for some. I saw a patient on TV who said he got off all his b/p meds. Fam

Re: Rheos Hypertension Pivotal Trial

The Rheos System seems like it could be a significant medical breakthrough in the treatment of High Blood Pressure, Heart Failure, and other Immune/Neurohormonal System diseases.

It relaxes the blood vessels, while at the same time, having an inhibiting effect on the NeuroHormonals.

During a two year study, Median Systolic BP was reduced down 35 points ( ± 8 ) from 191 ( ± 32 ); and Median Diastolic BP was reduced down 24 points ( ± 6 ) from 116 ( ± 22 ).

After one-year, data also showed improved heart structure and function.

At first I was somewhat skeptical seeing that, after two years, there was no reduction in the number of blood pressure medications taken; and the fact that the median blood pressure was still very high. But I became a lot more interested after looking at the results and the inhibiting effect on the NeuroHormonals.

Very interesting and novel medical approach! I wonder if Rheos would be as effective as Coreg? Hmmmm!? Perhaps a combination of the two? Coreg is such a wonderful, miraculous medication. I LOVE Coreg! Need to do a little more research on the Rheos device.
