The results of Synergy’s new study were released today at the International Symposium on Endovascular Therapy (ISET). The study, which can be found here, investigates whether balloon angioplasty induces alterations in the hypothalamus pituitary adrenal (HPA) axis as indicated by changes in levels of ACTH and Cortisol.
88 patients in the study underwent central venous balloon angioplasty. Among the study group, central venous balloon angioplasty treatment resulted in statistically significant reductions in both ACTH and Cortisol, which, the authors concluded, indicates alterations in the activities of the HPA axis. This suggests the treatment may alter the course of conditions that are associated with abnormal function of the HPA axis.
