Renal Sympathetic Denervation and Insulin Sensitivity (RENSYMPIS Study)
Not Provided

Hypertension is a major risk factor for stroke and cardiovascular mortality. Catheter- based renal denervation causes substantial and sustained blood- pressure reduction in patients with resistant hypertension.

The purpose of RENSYMPIS is to study the effects of renal denervation on:

  1. Cardiovascular function
  2. Metabolic factors
  3. Inflammatory and endocrine factors
  4. Coagulation
  5. Sleep
