Abstract

Catheter-Based Renal Sympathetic Denervation for Resistant Hypertension: A Meta- Analysis

Hypertension is a major risk factor to coronary artery disease and stroke being its control a cornerstone on primary and secondary prevention. Catheter ablation of the renal sympathetic innervations is a new and promising therapy but data is still limited. We aimed to evaluate its effectiveness in a meta-analysis of the available clinical trials.

Keywords: Hypertension; Denervation; Catheter ablation
