ReCor Medical adds another $12m for trial of Paradise renal denervation device

ReCor Medical last week added a $12 million contribution from Otsuka Pharmaceutical (TYO:4578) to the $10 million it raised from the Japanese conglomerate last year for a clinical trial of its Paradise renal denervation device for treating hypertension, ReCor president &CEO Andrew Weiss told this morning. In May 2016 Otsuka participated in a strategic investment of an unspecified amount; Weiss told us that that round and the $12 million debt financing added last week are earmarked for the Radiance-HTN efficacy study of the Paradise device, which is designed to use ultrasound waves rather than radiofrequency ablation of nerves lining the renal artery to treat high blood pressure. ReCor won an investigational device exemption from the FDA in February 2016 for the Radiance-HTN study, which launched in April of that year. The sham-controlled trial consists of two 60-day arms, he said: One, the “Solo” cohort, evaluating the Paradise treatment in patients with moderate hypertension who take one or two drugs for it, and a second called “Trio” investigating the treatment in patients with resistant hypertension who take three or more medications. Weiss said the study design calls for the Solo cohort to stop taking blood pressure medications for a month before being randomized to either Paradise or a sham procedure. The Trio group are taken off of their anti-hypertensive cocktail, stabilized for a month and t...

Abstract PURPOSE: To evaluate the associations between medical check-up items (MCI) for fundus and intraocular pressure abnormality (FIPA) diseases in the Department of Health Management Centre, the Fifth Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University (DHMC-FHS). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Individuals who visited DHMC-FHS and underwent MCI between June 2017 to May 2019 were included, 3237 subjects. A total of 356 participants were diagnosed as FIPA and enrolled. The general clinical characteristics were collected. Diseases for FIPA diagnosed included five cohort, high intraocular pressure, diabetic retinopathy, hyp...

Abstract BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The prevalence of adult thyroid structural abnormalities has increased significantly worldwide. However, no study has examined the thyroid structure and urine iodine levels of adults in Heilongjiang Province in the last decade. Therefore, this study aims to investigate the rate and risk factors of thyroid structural abnormalities among the residents of this province. METHODS AND STUDY DESIGN: A probability proportional sampling method was used, and a total of 3,645 individuals in Heilongjiang Province were included. The subjects was asked to complete a thyroid ultrasound an...

A case is described of a 4 year-old girl who presented with chronic episodic abdominal pain with vomiting. Physical examination was unremarkable aside from hypertension. Point-of-care renal ultrasound showed hydronephrosis, leading to a diagnosis of ureteropelvic junction obstruction presenting with Dietl crisis (episodic abdominal pain secondary to urinary tract obstruction). The clinical utility of point-of-care renal ultrasound in the evaluation of abdominal pain and ultrasound findings of ureteropelvic junction obstruction are highlighted.

Am J Perinatol DOI: 10.1055/s-0040-1716841 Objective Acute kidney injury (AKI) incidence is 30% in neonatal intensive care units (NICU). AKI is associated with increased mortality and risk of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in children. To assess follow-up and early CKD, we retrospectively reviewed outcomes of Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC) cohort of neonates from the AWAKEN trial (2014). Study Design Data from 81 CCHMC patients were extracted from the AWAKEN dataset. KDIGO (Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes) criteria for serum creatinine (SCr) and urine output (UOP) 6 months of ...

Abstract A 67-year-old male diabetic patient with systemic arterial hypertension was admitted to the emergency department with a necrotic ulcer in the left external malleolus and no palpable popliteal or pedal pulses. Arterial Duplex ultrasound identified femoropopliteal occlusion, with popliteal refilling below the knee and a patent peroneal artery. An endovascular procedure was performed, requiring retrograde access to the popliteal artery to re-establish blood flow and deploy a popliteal stent. Technical success was achieved and the patient underwent debridement of the wound. Two days later, about 48 hours after the ope...

We report a case of 69-year-old woman. In history, type II diabetes mellitus and arterial hypertension admitted to our hospital for the evaluation of leg pain, asthenia, diarrhea, and malaise. She was in the treatment with metformin and ARB. Laboratory data revealed renal failure: serum creatinine (Scr 16.5  mg/dl, BUN 280 mg/dl) hyperkalemia and severe anemia (Hb 7.8 g/dl). Renal ultrasound displayed preserved kidneys size. An X-ray of backbone showed fracture. She underwent hemodialysis in urgency regimen. After some days, urine output began to improve up to 1200 cc/24 h. we find proteinuria in n...
