However, a large body of experimental evidence has indicated that basal renal nerve activity does not influence renal haemodynamics (19-21).
The loss of the functions of the renal nerves was tested by stimulating them (Grass S48 stimulator, Grass instrument, MA, USA) at 15 V, 0.
Ultrasound has inherent advantages as an energy source for ablation, and we believe that external delivery of ultrasound energy better addresses the variability of the location of renal nerves and may lead to better outcomes.
Once in place within the renal artery, the Symplicity([TM] ) generator is activated to deliver a controlled, low-power radio-frequency (RF) energy routine according to a proprietary algorithm, or pattern, aiming to deactivate the surrounding renal nerves.
The V2 System for the treatment of uncontrolled hypertension is an over-the-wire balloon catheter with an array of RF electrodes mounted in a precise pattern designed to deliver a modest dose of RF energy to disrupt the renal nerves located in the adventitia that surround the renal artery.
The device briefly emits radio frequency near renal nerves in an attempt to disrupt hyperactive nerves that may be the root of high blood pressure.
The V2Systemfor the treatment of medication-resistant hypertension is an over-the-wire balloon catheter with an array of RF electrodes in a precise pattern designed to deliver a modest dose of RF energy to disrupt the renal nerves located in the adventitia that surround the renal artery.
The Symplicity Catheter System delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy from within the renal artery to block conduction in the surrounding renal nerves, thereby counteracting chronic activation of the sympathetic nervous system and lowering blood pressure.
After inflation in the artery, the balloon catheter's RF energy is activated for 30 seconds resulting in the disruption of the renal nerves located in the adventitia that surround the renal artery.
Ardian's Symplicity Catheter System delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy from within the renal artery to block conduction in the surrounding renal nerves, thereby counteracting chronic activation of the sympathetic nervous system.
