Brief Summary:
REDUCE-HTN-China study is a prospective, multi-center, single cohort study for the percutaneous therapeutic treatment of medication-resistant hypertension in China.The primary objective is to assess the efficacy performance of the Vessix™ Renal Denervation System for the treatment of medication resistant hypertension on the basis of the hypothesis that the percutaneous therapeutic renal denervation for the treatment of medication-resistant hypertension using the Vessix™ Renal Denervation System will reduce systolic (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) at 6- month compared to baseline as accessed by office-based blood pressure measurements.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Medication-resistant Hypertension Device: Percutaneous renal denervation with the Vessix™ Renal Denervation System Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The Vessix System is a highly-differentiated and advanced renal denervation system that features an intuitive push-button interface, a short 30-second treatment time and an over-the-wire, balloon-based approach familiar to most cardiac and vascular specialists. The Vessix System has both CE Mark and TGA approval and is currently available for sale in Europe, the Middle East, Australia, New Zealand and selected markets in Asia. The Vessix System is an investigational device and not available for sale in China. An current analysis of the REDUCE-HTN post market study affirms the device's safety profile and effective treatment for resistant hypertension.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Renal denervation with Vessix system Device: Percutaneous renal denervation with the Vessix™ Renal Denervation System
Other Name: Vessix Renal Denervation System

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The mean reduction of systolic blood pressure measured by office-based blood pressure assessment [ Time Frame: at 6-month post procedure ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Major adverse event (MAE) rate [ Time Frame: at one month post procedure ]
    Major adverse event (MAE) rate is a composite rate including the following events: All-cause death; Renal failure (eGFR <15 ml/min/1.73m2 or need for renal replacement therapy); Significant embolic event resulting in end-organ damage or intervention to prevent it; Renal artery dissection or perforation requiring intervention;Hospitalization for hypertensive crisis not related to confirmed non-adherence with anti-hypertensive medications; Vascular complications requiring surgical repair, interventional procedure, thrombin injection, or blood transfusion

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Significant new renal artery stenosis rate [ Time Frame: 6 months post procedure ]

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Have provided written informed consent
  • Are ≥ 18 years and ≤ 75 years of age
  • Have a SBP /DBP ≥ 160/90 mm Hg based on an average of three office-based blood pressure readings (seated) measured according to the protocol (≥ 150 mmHg in subjects with Type 2 diabetes)
  • On a stable medication regimen with ≥ 3 anti-hypertensive drugs (one of medications should be a diuretic, unless subject has a documented intolerance to diuretics) at maximally tolerated doses and have had no changes to the medication regimen two (2) weeks prior to enrollment
  • With a eGFR ≥ 40 ml/min per 1.73m²
  • Are willing and able to comply with all study procedures
  • With a main renal artery diameter of ≥ 3.5 mm and ≤ 7.0 mm for each of their kidneys
  • With a main renal artery without significant stenosis (stenosis defined as < 30%)
  • With a renal artery length of ≥ 15 mm

Exclusion Criteria:

  • With secondary hypertension
  • With Type I Diabetes Mellitus
  • Are contraindicated for intravascular contrast material
  • Are contraindicated for anticoagulation medications (heparin, aspirin, Angiomax, etc.), analgesic medications (morphine, fentanyl, etc.), anxiolytic medications (alprazolam, lorazepam, diazepam, etc.) or other medications required for an interventional procedure
  • With known bleeding or hyper-coagulation disorders
  • Have experienced a myocardial infarction, unstable angina pectoris, uncompensated heart failure, or a cerebrovascular accident within six (6) months prior to the screening visit, or have widespread atherosclerosis, with documented intravascular thrombosis or unstable plaques
  • Have planned percutaneous vascular or surgical intervention for any reason within the next 6 months

  • With iliac stenosis requiring intervention at time of procedure and/or within the next six (6) months
  • With severe femoral, renal, iliac or aortic calcification that may cause a potential complication at the time of the procedure
  • The physician is unable to cannulate the renal artery
  • The physician is unable to access the femoral artery by percutaneous means
