Renal denervation and uncontrolled hypertension – evolving data

Summary

Can renal denervation have a positive effect on controlling blood pressure? F. Mahfoud reports from the ESC Congress 2017 in Barcelona as he introduces a late breaking trial which answers in the affirmative. Three-month results of the international SPYRAL HTN-OFF MED study demonstrated a “significant reduction in ambulatory and office blood pressure” in the denervation arm. Learning from earlier trials, discover how this new study could provide sound biological proof of principal, underlining the evolution in our understanding of anatomy and particularly in our approach to the technique itself.
