Renal Denervation

This channel includes news and new technology innovations for renal denervation used to treat hypertension. Renal denervation is a catheter-based therapy. The catheter is into the renal artery and delivers radio-frequency energy to ablate the nerves in the vessel wall that regulate vasoconstriction. This leaves the vessel permanently in the widest open position to allow greater blood flow to the kidneys. This enables greater filtration of the blood and removal of excess water that causes hypertension

The Symplicity catheter uses radio frequency energy delivered in several ablations of the renal arteries to denervate the sympathetic nervous system, causing the arteries to permanently vasodilate.
