Catheter-based renal denervation reduces central sympathetic activation in patients with refractory hypertension.
- The magnitude of the individual depressor response after catheter-based renal denervation depends on the extent of sympathoinhibition.
- Both, the reduction in arterial pressure and in central sympathetic activation are sustained over time up to 24±3 months after catheter-based renal denervation.
- Catheter-based renal denervation resets the sympathetic baroreflex to lower blood pressure values.
