Managing Hypertension a Modern way

A novel device fitted in the groin could offer a breakthrough in the management of blood pressure, the BBC reports this morning.

The device – the size of a paper clip – is termed an ‘arteriovenous coupler’.

It creates a chamber between an artery and vein in the upper thigh, which appears to help lower resistance and bring blood pressure down, the BBC explains, and could be particularly helpful in patients resistant to drug treatments.

Professor Tom MacDonald, president of the British Hypertension Society and professor of clinical pharmacology at the University of Dundee, told the BBC:

‘It’s another potentially great advance in the treatment of hypertension.

It’s not without its problems, but the beauty of it is you can reverse it, and it can be given to people on top of hypertension medication.’
