Purpose: To investigate the effect of renal denervation on office-based and 24-h ambulatory blood pressure measurements (ABPM) in a highly selective patient population with drug-resistant hypertension...
Transcatheter (or percutaneous) renal denervation is a novel technique developed for the treatment of resistant hypertension. So far, only one randomised controlled trial has been published, which has...
Resistant hypertension remains a difficult clinical disease to treat. It is known to place a patient at higher risk for developing significant cardiovascular, renal, and cerebrovascular disease. There...
We report the first experience of Lyon's university hospital regarding renal denervation to treat patients with resistant essential hypertension.
Hypertension is a multifactorial condition which makes the development of treatment approaches difficult. The vast majority of patients are treated with lifestyle measures either alone or in combinati...
An international, multi-center, prospective, randomized, controlled study of the safety and effectiveness of renal denervation in patients with uncontrolled 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.
Prospective, randomized, controlled, multicenter, international clinical trial. The study population consist of patients with paroxysmal or persistent atrial fibrillation with out range hy...
This study is to evaluate efficacy and safety of renal denervation in the treatment of uncontrolled hypertension. This study will enroll a minimum of 40 and a maximum of 45 subjects. The s...
To demonstrate the efficacy of renal denervation therapy in treating resistant hypertension and its effect on glucose metabolism in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus
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.
