Active Comparator: Renal artery ablation
By femoral access, coronary and renal angiography are performed. The patient will be sedated. In case of vessel anatomy allowing renal ablation, the patient will be randomized in the card. lab. In case of randomization to active treatment, renal artery ablation will be carried out straight away.
Procedure: Renal artery ablation
Catheter based renal denervation by applying low power radiofrequency to the renal artery using the Ardian Medtronic Simplicity Catheter, introduced by femoral artery access.
Sham Comparator: Sham
By femoral access, coronary and renal angiography are performed. The patient will be sedated. In case of vessel anatomy allowing renal ablation, the patient will be randomized in the card. lab. In case of randomization to sham procedure, no renal artery ablation are performed.
Procedure: Renal angiography
Renal angiography by femoral access.
- daytime systolic blood pressure assessed by 24 hours ambulatory BP measurement [ Time Frame: 3 months follow up ]Changes in mean daytime systolic BP after 3 months is compared between groups. Also the proportion of responders versus nonresponders after 3 months is compared between groups, responders being defined as A) a minimum decrease in daytime systolic BP of 10 mmHg analysis together with and unchanged/increased number of antihypertensive drugs, or B) a decrease in daytime systolic BP of 0-10 mmHg together with a reduced number of antihypertensive drugs.
- ambulatory 24 hours BP measurements [ Time Frame: 1, 3 and 6 months ]Systolic, diastolic and mean Blood Pressures at different time points. Daytime and night time BP, dipping status, morning BP surge and BP variation.
- Echocardiography [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Coronary flow reserve (LAD), Diastolic and Systolic ventricular function. LV hypertrophy.
- Biomarkers [ Time Frame: 1 months ]Biomarkers concerning renal sodium excretion
- Applanation tonometry [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Pulse wave velocity, augmentation index, central BP estimates
- forearm plethysmography [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Forearm minimum vascular resistance
