BACKGROUND Renal denervation (RDN) reduces sympathetic activity and blood pressure (BP) in patients with resistant hypertension. Increased 24-h BP variability is associated with adverse cardiovascular outcomes and related to sympathetic activation. METHODS AND RESULTS This multicenter study investigated the effect of RDN on BP variability in 84 patients… CONTINUE READING
