Rezk et al [10] assessed some mechanisms of BP control after a resistance exercise session and observed decrease in the systolic volume and cardiac output, no change of the peripheral vascular resistance and, consequently, a reduction in BP.
The ROX CO UPLER is a small metallic stent-like implant that creates a therapeutic fistula, a calibrated passage between the artery and vein, which allows a certain amount of blood to be rerouted from the artery to the vein, returning back to the heart and lungs, thus lowering peripheral vascular resistance, and potentially blood pressure in hypertensive patients.
