Summary

The purpose of this clinical study is to see whether a medical device called the Paradise Renal Denervation System (also called The Paradise System) can lower high blood pressure in participants who are known to have hypertension. The device and the treatment delivered by the device, which is known as renal denervation, are investigational in the United States because they haven't been approved by the FDA. Renal denervation is a procedure where a catheter is placed inside these blood vessels (renal arteries). The ultrasound energy is created when the catheter is connected to a power source known as a generator. The ultrasound energy will heat up a small area of tissue around the blood vessel to disable nerves that are surrounding the blood vessels.

Participants will stop taking hypertensive medication before the procedure and up to two months after the procedure. Participants will be randomized to the procedure or control and will be followed for 36 months. At the six month follow-up appointment, participants will learn whether they had the procedure or not. Those who did not receive the procedure can opt in to have the procedure in the future.
