NewsGuard 100/100 Score

Hypertension significantly increases the risk of cardiovascular events and it is associated with high rates of disability and mortality. Hypertension is a common cause of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular accidents, which severely affect patients' quality of life and lifespan.

Current treatment strategies for hypertension are based primarily on medication and lifestyle interventions. The renal sympathetic nervous system plays an important role in the pathogenesis of hypertension, and catheter-based renal denervation (RDN) has provided a new concept for the treatment of hypertension. In recent years, studies on RDN have been performed worldwide. This article reviews the latest preclinical research and clinical evidence for RDN.
