Device-based interventional therapies for hypertension – Part III – Renal angioplasty and arteriovenous-fistula creation

With the collaboration of the Practical Course on Hypertension (PCH)

Chairpersons: H. Reuter, T. Zeller
Panellists: M.D. Lobo, F. Mahfoud


Consult the Part III of the device-based interventional therapies for hypertension that focus on renal angioplasty and arteriovenous-fistula creation as presented during EuroPCR 2017 in collaboration with the Practical Course on Hypertension (PCH).

Learning Objectives

  • To discuss patient selection for renal artery revascularisation
  • To review renal artery revascularisation procedure step-by-step
  • To understand the potential benefits and risks of arterio-venous shunt creation for hypertension treatment
