Abstract

Background: High blood pressure is one of the most common chronic cardiovascular diseases. Despite a plethora of drugs to lower blood pressure, adequate blood pressure reduction cannot be achieved in many patients with high blood pressure. Ablation of the nerves of the renal arteries is used in these patients.
Methods: Renal nerve ablation is a catheter-based, minimally-invasive method which, with the appropriate experience, is relatively easy to carry out, and has already demonstrated very promising results in patients with treatment-resistant hypertension.
Results: The data presented in this article confirm that catheter-based renal nerve ablation, used in 38 patients with treatment-resistant hypertension, is a safe and highly effective method of achieving optimal blood pressure stabilisation.
Conclusion: It remains to be seen whether the promising results of current studies will be confirmed in the long-term progress and lead to a reduction of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.
