Adherence to Antihypertensive Medication in Treatment-Resistant Hypertension Undergoing Renal Denervation.

Adherence to medication has been repeatedly proposed to represent a major cause of treatment-resistant hypertension (TRH); however, treatment decisions such as treating TRH with renal denervation depe...

Renal denervation in the treatment of resistant hypertension: Dead, alive or surviving?

Hypertension is one of the most common chronic clinical problems encountered by physicians. The prevalence of resistant hypertension is estimated at 9% in the US. Patients with resistant hypertension ...

The effect of two different renal denervation strategies on blood pressure in resistant hypertension: Comparison of full-length versus proximal renal artery ablation.

Renal denervation (RDN) is used to manage blood pressure (BP) in patients with resistant hypertension (rHT), but effectiveness is still a concern, and key arterial portion for successful RDN is not cl...

One year follow-up effect of renal sympathetic denervation in patients with resistant hypertension.

Resistant hypertension is a common clinical problem of blood pressure that is not controlled despite the simultaneous application of multiple antihypertensive agents. Ablation of renal afferent nerves...

Renal denervation in treatment-resistant essential hypertension. A randomized, SHAM-controlled, double-blinded 24-h blood pressure-based trial.

Renal denervation (RDN), treating resistant hypertension, has, in open trial design, been shown to lower blood pressure (BP) dramatically, but this was primarily with respect to office BP.

Clinical Trials [6210 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Distal Renal Denervation

Objective of this study is to evaluate whether a distal mode of endovascular renal denervation with the treatment performed primarily in segmental branches of renal artery is more effectiv...

Renal Denervation in Patients With Uncontrolled Hypertension (Symplicity HTN-2)

An international, multi-center, prospective, randomized, controlled study of the safety and effectiveness of renal denervation in patients with uncontrolled hypertension.

Renal Denervation in End Stage Renal Disease Patients With Refractory Hypertension

The purpose of this this study is to investigate the clinical utility of renal denervation in the treatment of ESRD patients with refractory hypertension.

Renal Denervation for the Treatment of Hypertension: A Pilot Safety and Efficacy Study

A single center, self-controlled pilot study on safety and efficacy of renal denervation in treatment of hypertension.

A Study to Evaluate Safety and Efficacy of the Redy™ Renal Denervation System in the Treatment of Patients With Uncontrolled Hypertension

The ReDy™ System (Renal Dynamics) is a renal denervation device incorporating a variety of ablation features and technical improvements over previously designed systems into a single pro...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Narrowing or occlusion of the RENAL ARTERY or arteries. It is due usually to ATHEROSCLEROSIS; FIBROMUSCULAR DYSPLASIA; THROMBOSIS; EMBOLISM, or external pressure. The reduced renal perfusion can lead to renovascular hypertension (HYPERTENSION, RENOVASCULAR).

Hypertension due to RENAL ARTERY OBSTRUCTION or compression.

Functional KIDNEY FAILURE in patients with liver disease, usually LIVER CIRRHOSIS or portal hypertension (HYPERTENSION, PORTAL), and in the absence of intrinsic renal disease or kidney abnormality. It is characterized by intense renal vasculature constriction, reduced renal blood flow, OLIGURIA, and sodium retention.

Persistent high BLOOD PRESSURE due to KIDNEY DISEASES, such as those involving the renal parenchyma, the renal vasculature, or tumors that secrete RENIN.

Use of a balloon catheter for dilatation of an occluded artery. It is used in treatment of arterial occlusive diseases, including renal artery stenosis and arterial occlusions in the leg. For the specific technique of balloon dilatation in coronary arteries, ANGIOPLASTY, TRANSLUMINAL, PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY is available.
