First report of transradial renal denervation with the dedicated radiofrequency Iberis™ catheter

We describe the first use of transradial access renal denervation in a patient with resistant hypertension using a dedicated radiofrequency catheter (Iberis™; Terumo Medical Corporation, Tokyo, Japan). The system includes a generator and a 4 Fr single-use radiofrequency (RF) device which has to be introduced via a 6 Fr guiding catheter. Radiofrequency energy is delivered at the tip of the catheter. The system was CE approved in March 2013.
