Abstract

Increasing studies strongly prove that renal denervation, a minimally invasive surgery, is a promising new non-drug treatment method that can effectively control blood pressure in patients with resistant hypertension, but the evaluation of the long-term blood pressure control effect of renal denervation for resistant hypertension is still lacking. Here, we critically review current long-term follow-up data about the use of renal denervation for RH to comprehensively evaluate the effectiveness of renal denervation for RH, and to provide practical guidance for practitioners who are establishing a renal denervation service. Limited by the current research, many problems need to be solved before renal denervation is applied to RH. In addition, ambulatory blood pressure should be the first choice for the evaluation of blood pressure. Finally, the continuous antihypertensive effect of renal denervation in different renal denervation systems also needs to be strictly compared.
