Chronic carotid baroreflex stimulation (Rheos system) has been shown to effectively reduce blood pressure in patients with resistant hypertension. Upon acute stimulation blood pressure also falls as a function of voltage. the aim of this study is to evaluate whether this voltage-dependent blood pressure decrease is preserved after long-term carotid baroreflex stimulation.
