NB: s/c subcutaneous Pour faire baisser la tension artérielle il y a des antihypertenseurs administrés sous forme d'ampoules! Ergo: s/c = souscutané! ANTIHYPERTENSIVE as drug substance for the treatment of arterial hypertension may also be prescribed/administered as an ampoule: --> s/c = subcutaneous !! [ex.: Clonidine est un médicament agoniste vendu sous Catapressan / trade name of Clonidine = Catapres] Therefore, it would be: HTA s/c = HTA therapy subcutaneous Ampoules administered as a means of lowering elevated blood pressure (antihypertensive)

sans cause (connue); without known cause

My comment:

several occurrences of this found on line - it could be this.

Or it could be "sans catheter". Also found instances of this on line relating to hypertension.

Take a look, see if one of these fits.
