SEATTLE, March 31, 2008 -- Millions of people suffer from high blood pressure, a potentially dangerous condition that can lead to heart attack or stroke. For some patients, medicines and lifestyle changes don't work, but now doctors are testing a new approach: implants.
KING Television (channel 5; NBC) in Seattle recently produced and aired a consumer health story about a related clinical trial that Swedish Heart & Vascular Institute-affiliated cardiologist John Young, M.D., is taking part in the Rheos Pivotal Trial to test whether a new implant may regulate blood pressure.
