Exploring Renal Denervation for the Management of Uncontrolled Hypertension

About This Series

It is well known that hypertension increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, yet it remains a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Despite a plethora of efficacious antihypertensive medications available, only 26.1% of adults in the United States have controlled blood pressure (< 130/80 mm Hg) and similar rates are reflected worldwide. Some factors for poor blood pressure management include patient nonadherence to medications and clinical inertia to intensify treatment based on guideline recommendations. In this series of CME activities, hypertension experts explore renal denervation as a potential treatment option for patients with uncontrolled hypertension.
