Event info


Hypertension remains the leading cause of cardiovascular death in the United States yet a large percentage of patients with hypertension cannot achieve control of their disease. Several contemporary sham-controlled randomized studies have shown that a novel invasive therapy called renal denervation can lower blood pressures over medications alone. This unique symposium explores cutting edge comprehensive hypertension care highlighting the role of renal denervation in the armamentarium of options to treat resistant hypertension.
