Renal angioplasty and arteriovenous-fistula creation for hypertension
12 Jul 2017 - From EUROPCR 2017
Interventions for hypertension – where do we stand today? Can the reality of clinical practice differ from trials? S. Ewen, F. Sharif and M. D. Lobo review current evidence and experience with a look at the growing instance of renal artery stenosis or the possibility of a “mechanical” approach to treating resistant hypertension. Is there an association between renal artery stenosis and hypertension or chronic kidney disease? Can certain patients benefit from revascularisation? Why would AV fistula creation reducing systemic vascular resistance reduce blood pressure? What is the ROX CONTROL HTN study and how does it point the way to future avenues of treatment? Learn more.
EuroPCR 2017 Highlights: Interventions for Hypertension
23 May 2017 - From EUROPCR 2017
What’s happening in the field of the device-based treatment of hypertension? Join S. Ewen, F. Mahfoud and A. Pathak as they review the different sessions at EuroPCR 2017 dedicated to this challenging topic. Explore exciting new devices such as one aimed at the carotid region using baroreflex activation, which might have an effect on heart failure as well as resistant hypertension. Look at a new transcatheter approach to modulate the carotid body. Learn about current data and results in the ongoing trials in renal denervation. Watch here...
