~ As the world observes World Hypertension Day on May 17, the global burden of hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, is being brought to light. According to a recent report from the World Health Organization (WHO), one in three Europeans over the age of 30 and more than one billion people worldwide are affected by this chronic disease.

Hypertension is often referred to as the "silent killer" because many people are unaware that they have it. Over time, if left untreated, it can lead to serious health issues such as heart disease, stroke, heart attacks, and other life-threatening conditions. In fact, hypertension is the number one contributor to the burden of human disease globally and has been associated with a five-year reduction in life expectancy.

To raise awareness about this devastating disease and promote early intervention and sustainable solutions for patients, Recor Medical – the pioneer of the Paradise™ Ultrasound Renal Denervation (uRDN) System – is joining the fight. This medical device-based procedure was recently approved by the FDA for treating hypertension.

The WHO report also highlights that despite the increasing prevalence of hypertension, only 54 percent of adults with hypertension are diagnosed and only 42 percent receive treatment. This means that a large number of individuals are at risk of developing long-term complications such as chronic kidney disease or failure, vision loss, sexual dysfunction, dementia, and uterine fibroids.

In light of these alarming statistics, it is crucial for individuals to monitor their blood pressure regularly and seek medical attention if they have high readings. With continued innovation and equitable access to early intervention methods like uRDN, there is hope for reducing the global burden of hypertension and improving overall health outcomes for those affected by this chronic disease.
