A subsequent report on a total of 153 patients treated with renal denervation documented that the blood pressure reductions seen at 6 months persisted out to 2 years (Hypertension 2011;57:911-7).
Renal denervation "could arguably be the most exciting advance in interventional vascular medicine," said Dr.
pivotal trial assessing renal denervation for blood pressure reduction began in October and a report on its final results won't appear until next year, but excitement based on earlier study findings and the European clinical experience is already running high for this new approach to treating drug-resistant hypertension.
MAP data in S-I were first analyzed (95%CI) by linear mixed-effects models (19) to evaluate the denervation * diet interaction and by ANCOVA to evaluate the effects of pdMAP and group on LNaMAP.
Then, rats received 90 mg/kg sodium ceftriaxone (Amcef, AMSA, Mexico) ia and were subjected to sham or real aortic denervation.
Comparison of this new model of cSSHT with the total arterial barodenervation model, comprised of sino-aortic denervation plus salt, which is the classical model of induced eSSHT, is almost inescapable.
3 mmHg) was not different from the MAP in the same rats (n = 10) measured before aortic denervation (113.
